Day #099: Progress Counts


Setback’s are what keep us honest. They bring us back to reality and remind us we are simply human. However you should never view a setback as a bad experience. It should be just another life lesson. Progress is progress, any little bit counts.

Just because you are not seeing results, this doesn’t mean you have a set back. Set backs are usually the result or consequence of doing something, which wasn’t catered for or planned for.

All of us have goals. Goals like losing weight, earning more money, finding a life partner, setting up our business, achieving performance targets, being fitter, building better relationships, and so on. Some people seem to have no problem achieving their goals. Some, on the other hand, don’t seem to be able to make any progress. – Celestine Chua

If you find yourself stuck with progressing with your goals and you know it isn’t a setback, it will most likely boil down to one or more of these reasons.

As you read through the list, ask yourself if you do any of these. See if you can take note and take action in working to change these…

  1. You Procrastinate
  2. You Underestimate Your Goal
  3. You Defend Your Problems Rather Than Taking Action
  4. You Are Stuck In A Box (Your Own World)
  5. You Are Not Working Smart
  6. Fear
  7. You Are Distracted
  8. You Over Complicate Situations
  9. You Give Up or Give In
  10. You Lose Sight of The Goals
  11. You Are Stuck In your Own Ways

Your goals are in your hands – you can achieve them as long as you strive for them. Address the 11 things blocking you from your success, and it’s a matter of time before you achieve results you seek.

The main point to take from this, is that even if you have had a setback or maybe you have been lacking with your progress. Regardless, you need to get back out there, you need to be taking action and making your mark. Progress is progress, any little bit counts.

Do something today that will bring you closer.
