July 24, 2017 - Are you closer than you think? Are you feeling as though all the effort you have put forth is not reaping the reward or progress you had hoped? Are you getting discouraged and beginning to wonder if you should keep forging ahead? Are doubts beginning to creep into you thinking because you haven't realized the results you had expected at this time? Anything you truly desire to be doing or achieving is worth continuing to pursue. Keep in mind that when it isn't as easy as originally hoped, it is testing your perseverance and endurance in spite of it all. Additionally, you have made progress whether you feel you have or not, so consider how far you have come before lamenting about how far you believe you may still have to go.
Take an MM&I Moment to recognize the progress that has been made in your endeavors. What do you know now that you didn't know before? What has been successfully completed that was not a week ago, a month ago, or a year ago? Who have you been introduced to or connected with that was not a part of your network before and will be a catalyst or resource now? What milestone have you realized, no matter how small? When we take moments to appreciate what has been done, we are in a better place to get more things done. Most important of all, it helps us realize that we are closer than we think because we are closer than we were before. And that is a very gratifying feeling.
