"It's only getting worse."

Do you believe that? Have you convinced yourself that time is running out, and because we've been going through some tough economic times; or because your job is not going so well; or because you're feeling like your life plan isn't really working out like you'd hoped; that perhaps your hourglass is slowly running out of sand?

Soon it's going to run out. What does that mean for you?

Nothing Left
I know when I get down on myself, for whatever reason, I can easily justify diving into the self-pity pool. Sometimes it really is justified...but usually I'm just being lame. Do you ever find yourself slipping down the self-pity slope? We make the decision to feel this way when we don't have confidence that other options exist. 

A little self confidence can go a long way.

Second Chances
Take a moment and reflect on the last time someone gave you a second chance. Maybe you missed a deadline; or maybe you were inadvertently rude to a colleague; or maybe you just made a mistake. Whatever the story, think about how relieved you felt when you started over with that second chance.

second chance can go a long way.

How About You
Do you know the best thing about an hourglass? When all of the sand runs out, you get to flip it over and have a brand new start. I think you should reach for that hourglass right now...because brand new starts can go a real, long way.

I'd love to hear from you.

No Excuses.

  1. I completely agree with this perspective. Self Pity is like digging yourself into a hole and unless people believe they have options and that they can start again, the hole only gets deeper!
