What you’ll hear in this episode:

Are you frustrated that you’re still too far from reaching your goals? Unfortunately, this feeling is normal and happens often if you focus too much on the future.

In this episode, we’ll talk about how shifting your focus towards making daily progress can take away that misery and frustration when pursuing a difficult goal.

Specifically, I shared why you should treat your journey like a marathon and not a sprint, and why you should be grateful for your progress and not worry too much about the distance ahead.

It’s important to stop watching the clock and focus on the small steps just ahead that are within your control.

When you focus on your daily wins, you will eventually reach your dreams.

Excerpts and Highlights:

If pursuing your goals is making you miserable, then it’s time to shift your focus toward growth.

Achieving your goals is not a singular action with a big finish, it’s the result of hundreds of actions that happen over and over.

Don’t hyper-focus on the finish line. Instead of measuring the distance to the “end”, celebrate how far you’ve come – and everything you’ve learned along the way.

Don’t set a hard time limit on success.
