“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again."
- Theodore Roosevelt
Err Again and Again
I hope you are failing…at least once in a while! Because if you are, that means that you are pushing yourself to try new things – taking risks as you figure out what works and, sometimes, what doesn’t.
You cannot do this from the sidelines. Nor can you do this by ‘thinking’ about what you want. Intention is not the same thing as action.
As you think about managing your ADHD, or about moving away from parenting dynamics, or whatever task you have set yourself to, think ACTION. Set one action goal a day. Start small. ‘I will set a medical appointment today.’ Or, ‘I will get a notebook to put beside my bed so I can start my gratitude practice tonight.’
One thing every day turns into a lot of accomplishments in very short order!
Strive to do. Dare to come short…and learn from it…as you seek to improve your life!
