Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
I know it’s cliché, but it really does hold a lot of meaning. Everyday is an opportunity to start anew, even if yesterday you said the same thing and attempted to start over but failed. The important thing is to get back up and try again. No one ever achieved greatness by staying down.
If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.
It’s okay to fail. It’s not okay to give up. Learn from your mistakes and move on. We all know this, but it really doesn’t hurt to remind yourself from time to time. Sometimes you need to repeat this over and over again so that it is ingrained in your mind. That way the next time you do fail or fall, you know exactly what to do and you get back up right away.
It’s okay if you’re not the best. What’s important is that you are your best. Don’t compare yourself to others because we are all different. We learn in different ways, at different paces. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re doing it wrong. You can’t “do you” wrong. And don’t ever apologize for being yourself.
A reminder to myself and hopefully you can benefit from it too. Whoever you are, wherever you are.
