I find it fascinating how easy is it to be swayed by people and circumstances – those seemingly negative things we experience. When it happens to me (and those around me), it is not a big surprise.
What I didn’t really pay attention to until a few years ago is how distracting a win, success, or victory can be. It’s actually part of the “one hit wonder” phenomenon. What’s so important is that as you have a success, you (of course) celebrate and then plan your next goal. Otherwise, the headiness of the win could make you complacent and when you don’t continue to advance, you are retreating.
Pay attention to any discouraging challenges or impasses AND the things that might make you pause too long. Both can sway you – don’t let them.
Have a great day,
