Be Proud of Your Results

When we aim to achieve a goal in life, putting that goal ahead of us gives us a certain level of motivation and work-ethic, that we otherwise may not have without that “goal.”

Each goal we embark on in life, will end up with a result, that will tell us how good or how bad we did as perceived.

Not every goal we set out to do and aim for may be the right one for us in terms of achieving, but it is exactly what we need to learn more about yourselves as individuals. And what we are capable of.

When we seek a goal, we often focus on the “end-result” of that goal – and freak ourselves out in the process – losing sight of the steps that we need to take on daily basis to achieve that result.

It is normal – we want to achieve, conquer and reach. Right now.

But what do we need to do between GPS location A to each GPS Location B? Take turns, detour, drive fast, then slow down, stop at the gas station if we’re low on petrol, eat a snack while the car is fueling, dealing with traffic, then finally, just about finally we reach.

It could be as a simple as an 0.01% improvement today, that can take you closer to your goal.

Don’t be afraid if that goal is far away from you, some days you’ll improve by 3% and others by 0.5%. Life happens.

As you go with your day, weeks, months and years – you look back and you say: “Dang, it’s been a journey, I have truly improved in one way or another in those days, weeks, and months that passed. There were ups and downs, but I still did better than I did a while back.”

And now you are close to reaching you goal. It’s right in front of you. Whatever your goal was, you have two ways of looking at it:

1) You failed because you didn’t reach our goal

2) You achieved triumphs after triumphs because you failed to reach your goal. In other words, failed your way to success. 

The goal of this motivational piece, is to walk you through why you should proud of your “results” at any stage of life you are in.

Many reach a goal they set out and then ask – now what?

I say enjoy the discovery of failing over and over again, into your success over and over again.

Be proud of your result.
