Lets be honest – this is where most of us fall down.
We start off with good intentions, full of enthusiasm for what we are about to do, the mountains we’ll climb, the heights we will reach, the success we’ll achieve.
Then we start to get a bit bored.
It starts to seem like a bit too much work.
We forget what we wanted to achieve in the first place and start to think about what we want to do right at this particular moment.
Maybe a few obstacles have got in our way.
Maybe someone has said something that has demotivated us.
Maybe those mountains seem a bit too high right now.
You haven’t failed until you’ve stopped trying.
Persistence is King
It’s said that experts in a field have failed at it more times than most people have even tried.
Mastering a skill – really mastering it – takes about 10,000 hours of practice.
So, think back to the start of this year – what did you want to achieve?
Are you still on track?
If not, maybe it’s time to remember why you wanted to do it in the first place.
Pick yourself up, forgive yourself for not being as amazing as you had hoped you would be and get back on it.
