Goal for the Day: Encourage Yourself

Some days, we feel as though we’re going nowhere. Everything we touch feels as if it breaks in our hands and we don’t seem to be making any progress. However, each day is filled with many, many triumphs if only we stop to recognize them.

Every minute that we’re up and running, every second that we’re functioning is a triumph. The true mark of defeat is giving in to negative feelings. The only failure is giving up. Instead of focusing on what went wrong, look at what was successful. Congratulate yourself for the little triumphs of the day. Reward yourself for just continuing to fight. That way, you’ll always have something to look forward to.
