“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” ―George Bernard Shaw
In the soup of our daily lives, when the detail can fill up most of our waking consciousness and the challenges and next steps can rise like walls, it’s important to stop, look back, and realize how far we’ve come.
No, we may not be “there” yet, and we may have been through or currently be in the midst of seeming difficulty, and yet we can choose to see it all as progress.
Even if it’s the final time we’re hitting our head against a wall, that’s advancement… because it’s the final time and everything is earned and deserved growth from here!
The sister Schools of Life and Hard Knocks have easy admission standards but only minimal seasoned graduates. Those who view the schooling as progress rise to the top of the class.
In what ways and areas can you look back today to be empowered by how far you’ve come?
Seriously! Just look at where and how you were 3 years ago! Sheesh!!!!
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement and success have no meaning.” –Benjamin Franklin
