If you ask me the best way to achieve a goal is to focus on the process not the outcome.
A lot of us will have to start from the premise that it might take longer and harder to get where we want to be be.
Just knowing this can help us feel better instead of expecting quick results.
That’s why I use the term lifelines not deadlines.
So I say–set a goal that’s within reach. As you rack up wins challenge yourself to do something slightly beyond what you think you’re capable of.
Jim Afremow in his book The Champion’s Comeback writes that the goal shouldn’t be to lighten our load–the goal should be to seek to have broader shoulders.
Living with a mental health challenge isn’t ever easy. We can have times when our lives ARE easier so we must appreciate these times when they’re here.
As is quoted: “You have two hands: one for helping yourself. One for helping others.”
In this regard I’ve become so inspired because of the Women’s March on Washington.
If you want to read about this March I’ll be posting a review and my impressions of it on Saturday to the Left of the Dial blog.
