We often get stuck when we put our focus on the things that we can’t or didn’t do. The key to getting unstuck is to focus on what we can do. For example:
Even if you can’t lose twenty pounds by tomorrow, you can start eating less and moving more.
Maybe you can’t fix all your problems today, but you can begin to solve each problem, one-step at a time.
While you can’t change the way people behave, you can change the way you react.
Perhaps you can’t reform the government, but you can write a letter, vote and support the causes you believe in.
Action leads to progress, so don’t get stuck in a negative vacuum by focusing on what you can’t do. Make a decision about what you can do and do it. Taking even one small step will move you closer to your dream.
