You are doing really well


Remember that when beginning any new venture or learning a new hobby
There are going to be times that you will feel lost. That you are not getting anywhere.
When you start to feel like this it is important to remember that. . .

You are doing really well.

You are doing really well, because you are passionate. Because you want to move forward. Moving forward is exciting but you can get lost in thinking about the future and that is what makes completing new tasks in present seem so slow.

Slow moving. That no change is happening.

Change takes time.

Remember to take stock. Look back at what you have already acheived. I'm sure you will be reminded of something you have forgotten and have already accomplished.

When I am feeling down about not achieving what I set out to. If I think I have failed. I will make a list of all the things I have learnt. It often turns about that there is a lot to be happy amount. It might be hidden underneath the disappointment right now. But if you dig a little deeper you will find that you have accomplished so much already.

For example, I failed my driving test today. I am feeling pretty gutted about it to be honest. I could easily get stuck in negative thoughts and beat myself up about failing. After a little cry. I made my list. In a nutshell it showed that, six months ago I was prettified of driving and now I feel so comfortable that I cannot wait to pass my test and drive properly. That in itself is an amazing accomplishment for me. Yes, I failed. This time.
However, I can learn from my mistakes and use them to improve. If I fail again, I will do the same again.

Be mindful of negative thoughts and tell yourself that you need time to work towards your goals.

You are doing really well.

  1. I am utterly petrified of learning to drive! I had a few lessons a couple of years ago and did okay-ish until I was in a really bad car accident (as the passenger) and I've been too nervous to start again! So WAHOOO go you for facing your fears and in just SIX months taking your test! That's pretty awesome in my eyes! There's always next time to pass and until then, you've done a cracking job at facing that fear!
