"I may not be there yet, but I am closer than I was yesterday"

Listen Now:

“I may not be there yet, but I am closer than I was yesterday.

This quote is all about acknowledging progress. When working towards our goals, we can get impatient and hope to get results in a time frame faster than we are meant to. This can create disappointment, and discourage us from continuing to take our goals as seriously. It creates room for excuses and doubt. But, when you assert to yourself that you know you’re not at your goal yet, a strange thing happens. Your current becomes more contextual, both in the sense of looking forward and looking behind you. Recognizing that you are on the path to your goal, you can begin to see how the pieces come together and the stars align.

Seeing life in this way, that small wins compound into large wins, brings a wave of positivity into your life that enriches your every action. With that heightened motivation and presence, you can be more effective making more progress on your goals, feeding and sustaining the cycle.

So, if things don’t seem like they’re coming together how you wanted, or something still seems to be missing, provide a layer of context to the state of it, you may not be there yet, but you are closer than you were yesterday.
