One of the quickest ways to become discouraged is to look outside yourself and see that no one values or appreciates the tremendous effort you’re expending as you strive toward your dreams.

Of course the people in your closest circle want the best for you and want you to be happy, but they really don’t “get it”. That’s because no one but you can hear the Still Small Voice leading you on your path and no one has The Vision that you do that lights your way. So, while those closest to you try their best to support and encourage you, you must be your own hero.

Your homework today is to put your Hero glasses on so, as you review your week, you can see all the wonderful and heroic things you did!

Of course note the areas where tweaks and refinements are needed, but focus on the things that went right, the tasks you did well, and the progress you made. Even if your progress is microscopic and your successes were messy and by the skin of your teeth, applaud yourself for them.

Treat yourself like the hero you are. Don’t expect others to get it—especially if you are celebrating small increments of progress and by-the-seat-of-your-pants achievements. That’s okay. Yours is the approval, acknowledgement, and applause that is the most important.

You done good—great, even! Celebrate!

You can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
