MOTIVATION: Each Moment Provides An Opportunity to Make a Better Choice

No matter what happened yesterday or even a minute ago - this moment, right now, is a chance to do better!

⁣⁣ You don’t need to wait until tomorrow to start fresh. Sometimes after a big blunder or when something doesn’t go as planned, we become discouraged and take an all-or-none attitude, believing that since we already messed up we might as well just ride that terrible wave until it ends. Perhaps we slip up on our #diet and we think we might as well have a free-for-all the rest of the day. Or, we’ve gotten into an argument with a loved one, and instead of apologizing, you double down on your convictions and stubbornly refuse to back down. Or, your work project is more time-consuming than you realized, so you throw up your hands and #procrastinate. Or, maybe you’re trying to quit a bad habit, you fall off the wagon and decide you’re not cut out for this and give up. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ All of these are excuses we tell ourselves to verge deeper into problematic patterns that cause grief to the people around us and ourselves. It can weigh on our #SelfEsteem and make us feel terrible, which of course, leads to a self fulfilling prophecy. If you don’t think you deserve better, then your actions will certainly follow suit to confirm these beliefs. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Remember, each moment is an opportunity to do better.Starting now, you can begin fresh, no matter what happened one second ago.

So take a deep breath, ask yourself, “What is one small thing I can do to steer myself in a positive direction?” - and do that. ⁣⁣It's so #empowering to know you can make tiny changes moment-to-moment that lead to greatness.⁣⁣ What’s one small step you’ll take in a positive direction today?
