I needed to hear, 'you don’t need more time, you just need more intention in your efforts'.
Ask yourself, what choices can I make today, that my future self will love me for tomorrow? Or in 10 years from now?
I view life in a way that there are no failures, just a bunch of small victories building more & more momentum towards winning — this trains the mind for success rather than failure.
She (my mother) taught me to live life in a way that made any outcome, a great outcome  — in fact, it was the perfect outcome, even if we couldn’t see it yet.

I can’t get this job.

I can’t look like that or feel that way.

I can’t, I can’t, I can’t.

Stop. You can, you can do anything.

When we make these mini-goals tangible and achievable, and start to achieve them, guess what? We are on the way to getting to our long term goals! The key is: each of these mini-goals should be celebrated — this is what keeps me going, the pure excitement of hitting each of these goals.

Once we become aware of when our peak mental state hits, and contrarily, when we become clouded by mental blocks, we can schedule the most important tasks during our mental peaks, and the menial tasks during our mental valleys. This simple change will rapidly begin to affect the quality and efficiency of output we deliver on a day-to-day basis.

I want to tell whoever is listening that happiness is real, it can be true, and it can be chosen at any given point. Happiness is a choice.
