Christmas isn’t just a place of celebration and joy. It should be a time where you consider the less fortunate and how other struggle in life, and then recognize your gratitude and see where you have struggled as well. Maintaining that growth mindset is crucial for developing habits that allow you to move forward and strive.
What did you accomplish this year that you had as a goal to begin the year? Where did you fall short?, was it something you gave up on right away after the failure? How many other ways could you have approached your goal?, who else could you have utilized as help to reach your goal? Did you approach your mission from a place of regular action?
We all have dreams to chase after but most of us chase them down with ego or big talk and resolve with little action and progress. We get recognized for the story we are telling about our plan and usually fall short on the actual tangible result because we don’t put the work in and stay persistent. The failure is usually then a reason to stop all-together and set that dream aside because a barrier got in the way!
As Tony mentions, it is so vital to assess where you are at and take responsibility for the options you have to correct and build upon for the days, weeks and months going forward. This will set you in more of a position of success =)
Do you review your mindset, actions, and work ethic regularly throughout the year and make adjustments?
