Falling is always a part of life, but as long as you get up more often than you fall down, that's ok.
This past week I was so busy at work and I have been working really hard on my exercise goal that my money management, diet and cleaning goals were completely neglected. I assessed where I was and how I got there, but I didn't place a negative value judgement on myself. I told myself that I needed a reset on Monday, and I got so much done today! When you allow yourself opportunities to fail, then you notice it and reset when you're able, you'll find that your baseline keeps rising. Yeah, I didn't clean at all last week, but it only took one day to get back to a place that is wayyy better than before I started working on that goal. Progress is not a straight line!
1- Why do I deem this a failure?
2 – By how much did I fail?
3 – Being kind but firm, how much do I know I can manage?
Once you've reflected, reassess and pick a level that's enough of a challenge to give a sense of achievement without being overwhelming.
Hopefully that makes sense?
