If you’ve been following our blog you may have seen me talk about dealing with an “All-Or-Nothing” mindset. I struggle with this thinking and am diligently working to change this crazy TrAiN Of ThouGht. Here is one thing that is helping me out a GreAt dEaL. I recently have adopted the thinking, “Use The Resources You Have”. I actually say this to myself and Lara & I talk about it often. This gives me “PerMisSiOn” to continue on even when the situation is not “PeRfEcT”.
So what, that I’ve MeSsEd uP, had a rough day, got off to a bad start or things just aren’t going like they are suppose to go? I ReFuSe to have the mindset, “May as well throw in the towel for today. I’ll start again tomorrow.” I won’t mess up the rest of my day with that notion. Instead I’ll use the resources I have. In this case, it is the ReSt oF tHe DaY – completely free of mistakes and disappointments. Who knows what good thing may be just around the corner?
What are you lacking in? Time, inspiration, money, education, energy, health, a good childhood, etc. It really doesn’t matter. What matters is what you Do HaVE.
I don’t know if this advice will help you, but it sure has helped me. Do I have this MaSteReD? No, but I’m a work in progress. A LittLe At a TiMe.
