Perspective is everything / by Marlous Teh

change the way you look at things


.

I say this ALL THE TIME. And I don't think I've ever been tested more on this than in the last weeks...
.

When you're driving somewhere and you know where you're going and how to get there, you will go 110 miles an hour. But when the weather and road conditions change, and it starts to hail and storm, and you're driving through mountains and valleys.... You MUST SLOW DOWN... .
.
I was feeling disappointed and frustrated at myself. Why couldn't I keep going at the speed I planned to? I tried my hardest to go at it with the speed I set out to do all these things only to find myself fighting and climbing mountain after mountain after shit storm, hail, snow, bloody thunder and oh another freaking mountain... .

REDEFINE SUCCESS.
Rather than ask myself how fast I am going and let my speed dictate my success, I need to remind myself: I'm going as fast as I can in the current conditions. Because why do we have the need to drive ourselves into the ground to get there faster than yesterday? "Have a look at the bloody hail storms and mountains you've overcome and have been having to deal with daily, beautiful. And also have a look what you have, what you get to do and get to learn. Wow.. THAT'S what makes a winner all the way."
. .
Work with what you have, put in the work and keep showing up. ❤️
