This past weekend was my 10 yr old son Stephon had his first baseball game of the season.
They won by one run and it was a very exciting game.
He got to play catcher for the first time and did an awesome job!
Seeing this picture, you wouldn’t know that last year he was completely afraid of getting hit by the baseball.
Over the summer and fall he worked on catching and hitting the ball with confidence. He even got hit a couple of times and picked himself up and got right back at it (proud dad moment:).
After the game, he was upset that he didn’t get a hit.
I reminded him that this time last year he was terrified of the baseball and now he did an amazing job playing catcher.
His demeanor completely changed and he had a big smile on his face:).
This immediately reminded me of the perspective we have in our own health and wellness journey’s.
We may have missed a couple of days (or weeks) working out, had too many sweets over the weekend, not getting quality sleep, etc.
Once that happens, we tend to fall into that pit of disappointment and create a mindset of failure.
We all struggle with that some way or another.
The advice I give my clients is to always look back at where they were a year ago. What progress and positive changes have you made?
Focus on those victories and successes and build off of them. This will lead to long-term success and helping you reach your goals!
