Your homework today is to take a page or two out of George Washington’s book—the way he lived his life.
As you review your week, run it through the filter of George’s habit of purposely tuning out the negative voices—his and others’. He steadfastly focused on thoughts that supported and empowered him, made a plan for dealing with setbacks, then steadfastly carried it out. He developed rock-solid resolve by moving forward one step at time, no matter how small or humble they were.
Remember that you don’t have to be perfect in these attributes, just show improvement—even just a little bit. It all adds up!
Note the improvements and the progress you’re making and then celebrate these. Small bits of advancement are just fine.
Follow through on celebrating! It’s crucial to acknowledge your victories because every single one of them is essential to your success.
If you feel awkward having a “big” celebration, a small, quiet one is just fine, too.
You can do it!
I’m so proud of you!
