Being forward thinking, and on focus with regards to the goals you have set for yourself, and the direction you want your life to move in is important — no doubt about it.
However, it’s also important to give ample time to the successes you’ve experienced along the way. And we’re not just talking about the monumental wins either. Even the smallest of right actions all add up. They all count, and are important!
The reason taking the time to recount your past achievements is so important is because in doing so you’ll find it to be a terrific motivator for helping to move you forward on your goals.
When you feel good about the place and path you’re on, and the progress you’re making (and have made in the past) you will find it to be that much easier to stay the course and dedicate the necessary time to accomplishing what needs to be done to get you to the eventual outcome you’ve planned for.
Recounting your past achievements will become a welcome reminder and source of validation that you’re making things happen in your life.
It’s your life, LIVE BIG!
