Generally, we tend not to look, see or think about how far we’ve come. That usually only happens when we consciously look back at our life and we can see how far we’ve come.
But looking back is important and something we need to think about. Perhaps it’s also got something to do with our past, a past we’d rather forget, or a past we’re stuck in and that’s the reason we can’t move on. But a difficult past will always feel uneasy unless we learn to be compassionate with ourselves.
We tend not to look, but instead base how successful we are through our accomplishments, not our personal best on how far we’ve come, but we must always look at our personal best and how far we’ve come, because it’s our personal best where we do the most emotional work on ourselves.
Our personal best will also tell us how far we’ve come and how much further we have to go. Our accomplishments, won’t give us that. But even through difficult paths, we can still come through even more focused and look how far we’ve come.
So choose to check in with yourself every now and again and see how far you’ve come. It will help you decide on the next step.
