Remind Yourself Of What You Have Accomplished
Last Update: Mar 24, 2023
Hi WA Friends,
I hope this day finds you well wherever you are.
Have you ever had a day when you feel like everyone is just doing better than you? Maybe you see other people as crossing that proverbial finish line while you still feel like you're at the starting mark.
It happens to us all at one point or another, that's for sure. That old sense of self-doubt sometimes just creeps in when we least expect it to.
At times like that, you have to remind yourself of what you have accomplished. It doesn't matter how big or small - make sure you recognize what you've gained in moving towards your dreams and goals.
Always remember that you don't know what someone else is going through. You can't be in anyone else's shoes but your own. So don't be envious and feel like you're dragging behind others.
Everyone's journey is different. And that's totally alright. You are uniquely you and that's what's important.
Keep things in perspective when you feel life's struggles washing over you. Consider that you are doing all you can with what you have.
Bottom line is you need to appreciate yourself. Give yourself a pat on the back and stop comparing yourself to others. Put down that social media or scroll and let it go!
Those feelings can be totally normal. But you know they are not in your best interest.
In the words of Dale Carnegie, "The best things in life are yours, if you can appreciate yourself."
Now, take a moment to focus on what makes you happy and what is going right in your life because something definitely must be.
You'll be surprised how that can change your perspective.
Have a great day everyone!
Appreciate the words of wisdom as always here Susan!
We are all individuals and should never compare ourselves to others...
When we feel a little low and self doubt starts to creep in, it's always beneficial to reflect and be proud of what we have accomplished so far!
Have a wonderful weekend my friend!
Thanks for your supportive feedback as always, Nick! Most appreciated for your input. Have a lovely weekend, too my friend! 😊😊🥂
Just in time, I've only been her 3 months and I have a lot of self doubt. I doing better. When I get down and wonder what the H I'm doing, I find some little bright light to hold on to. Some I keep going. And so far that little bright light keeps shining.
That’s very relatable. But you’re right that you can always find a shining light when you need it here at WA. Thanks for sharing and dropping by. It’s appreciated. Have a great day!
Thanks for posting this. Its hard to appreciate ourselves. we tend to appreciate others. Sometimes life gets hard and frustrations brings out a part of you that you don't like. Thats when change is necessary to try to improve ourselves and give ourselves a pat on the back for doing our best. Thanks for sharing. Nice to be reminded that our journey in life should be what you stated in your post. Its not easy to do this.
I’m glad you enjoyed reading my post, Brenda. I agree…it’s not easy. Life can be down right difficult. But self-appreciation will help us in the end. We’re all different and so are our dreams. And that’s a-ok in my book. Have a super day!
Yes definite. My thought is move forward and there is plenty on the website you can strive real good with your site
There is sometimes a doubt phase I call it. Like was saying if your having trouble figuring out ask someone in the chat. I try yo change things here and there. Can be interesting and fun and the thing is to like your niche.
Good reminders here for all of us. Yes, it's very important to look back now and then and remember where we started. I also like your point about not always knowing what other people are going through. That's so important, because we might be walking in the same direction, but our journey will definitely be different than another's.

Hey, Susan hope you are doing well. You are so right. I am the toughest on myself, but sometimes I am too lenient. Here lately, I have just been tired and lazy, LOL.
Time to get back at it sometimes; you have to take a break and come back with force.
I hope you have a great day!
