Where You Are at is OK, Because It’s Where You Are.

When I work with clients I often hear stories of the glory days, when they were more fit, healthy, accomplished etc. I think that is awesome. The challenge is making sure they are not living in the past and are accepting the present. However, it is important to honor who you are and where you are in that moment.

As humans we usually like to appeal to our best self. In fact, we are more responsive when others do also. If you are someone who often says things like aloud or in your head like "I keep my commitments," yet you have fallen short on them in the past several months. Well guess what, you don't actually keep your commitments. And I'm here to tell you that is okay, for now. The present is a summary of your past. You can make changes at any time but you cannot go backwards.

What I am saying is that it is important to acknowledge and accept where you are right now. It doesn't make you a bad person, it doesn't mean you are a failure. Focus not about where you should be, you could be, you wanted to be, or you used to be. When we finally accept our present condition we give ourselves the opportunity to be at inner peace and to clear our minds in order to make the next step forward…to take action (if you so choose).

Vision is important, but you can’t realize your vision without action.
