Before you get annoyed and come back at me with all the reasons you are most certainly NOT doing great, give the idea of ‘doing great’ a few minutes to settle around you.
Think about it like this…
Ok, perhaps you haven’t followed your plan perfectly.
Maybe you haven’t worked as hard as you meant to.
And, you might not be where you hoped to be right now.
But you have been putting in an effort to make the changes you want to make.
It may not be working yet but you are exploring what *could* work. You are figuring out what mental, physical, and environmental conditions you require to add your intended habit.
So, you’re doing great.
I’m not measuring your results here, I am admiring your PROCESS.
Adding new things to a busy life is complicated and it requires a process of trial and error as you figure out what works.
Committing to that process is impressive.
It doesn’t matter that you haven’t figured it all out yet, you are on your way.
So, starting from the idea that you are doing great with your process so far…
What are you going to try next?
Here are your gold stars for your efforts, your exercise, your meditation, your consciously-chosen rest, your commitment to the process of figuring this out.
