When we are trying to change our habits and behaviors, we can often find ourselves discouraged. Change takes hard work. Notice that word “hard.” That means we won’t always succeed right away.
Even so, we can always find some kind of victory each week. If we have to, we can at least recognize that we’ve eliminated some ineffective ways of working toward our goals. It’s likely we can find something more positive than that. Maybe we managed to have more than coffee for breakfast most days of the week. Maybe we got in four days of cardio. Maybe we talked ourselves into a walk when we really wanted to watch another episode of that great show we’re addicted to.
Find the success. Build on that. Whatever else happened can slip unnoticed into the past.
