Look How Far I’ve Come
Pastor, Joyce Meyers has this saying “I may not be where I want to be, but I sure am not where I use to be.” Which if you took a deep look at your life you would see the truth in that statement. The way you move a mountain is by moving one stone at a time. Every stone you move, no matter how small, is progress.
Sometimes it may be hard to see your progress. Sometimes it will be frustrating when the results you seek don’t appear as quickly as you had hoped. Still, you are advancing. You may be moving along slowly, but you a are still moving a mountain.
Achievement, after all, is an enduring process, not a single event. To achieve any worthwhile goal you must cover a whole lot of ground. You need to learn what works and what doesn’t work by trial and error. You must explore possibilities, many of which will only show you what doesn’t work. Just keep in mind that the mistakes and setbacks are a vital part of the process.
Take a break every now and then and pat yourself on the back. Applaud yourself for doing what needed to be done. And be careful not to spend so much time looking at how far you still have to go, that you forget to appreciate how far you’ve already come.
