Focus on Your Progress, Not Your Ideal
What you choose to pursue will constantly elude you because your ideal is a natural moving target. So if you fall for the trap of measuring your current self against your future self (the person who will have attained her ideal), you’ll never be satisfied with where you are today because there will always be a gap to fill.
Be in the gain, not in the gap, and you’ll experience a sense of having achieved something beautiful. And that’s the feeling that’ll crush your inner critic’s voice and motivate you to keep going.
"The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.”- John Maxwell
