August 2 – Needing instant gratification? Are you feeling like everything is taking longer to be realized than you would like? Are you staying diligent in all you are trying to accomplish yet don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel to completion? Do you find yourself just wishing it could be magically expedited?
When you are only looking at the long haul ahead, you may be missing the small incremental successes that are getting you closer than you think. Appreciating the progress you are making is essential to making your journey ahead more gratifying along the way.
Take an MM&I Moment to awaken your mindset to the many ways you are further along than you are giving yourself credit for being. Look back over your progress to date. What do you now know that you didn’t know before that has been instrumental in your progress? Who are you now connected with who is instrumental to achieving your goal? What is a recent step you have taken that manifested additional opportunities or options for you to consider? Sometimes instant gratification is merely taking a moment to appreciate where you are right here and now.
