It's Sunita here.
Lewis Caroll said, "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there."
The perils of not having any direction in life are many. However, there are also dangers in clearly knowing what you want to accomplish. If you have a vision, then you are familiar with the impatience for results that accompanies your ambition. There seems to never be enough resources, or time to complete what you want to in a day.
For many of us, this can start to become oppressive and depressing. The path to succeeding at a lofty goal can easily turn into one of frustration. I have found these words of wisdom of Arthur Ashe to be incredibly helpful and grounding at times when my plan to move forward does not match the reality of my capabilities.
Arthur Ashe's advice is not only inspiring, but practical for such times. And it is essentially a message of Self Love Self Care First for those who demand and expect a lot from themselves. Sometimes, too much. Instead of surveying the progress made by the end of a day, it is easy to focus on all that remains to be done. And what 'should' have gotten done. Your goals can become overwhelming instead of energizing.
When you fall into that trap, remember what Arthur said.
Start Where You Are.
Use What You Have.
Do What You Can.
And then get a good night's sleep. Tomorrow will bring another opportunity to do more.
Wishing you a week of inspiration,
Be well, Do well, Live well
