Keep-aspiring-KeepIt’s tempting to avoid experiencing disappointment.

We aim to lose weight, read more books or become a better person, but we are flawed, imperfect and can be easily distracted.

So year after year after year, when we consistently let ourselves down and fall short of our goals, we feel disappointed with ourselves.

We don’t like feeling like that, so we eventually stop aspiring to anything.

We give up.

We become accustomed to our current state.

We know that we should try, but we don’t want to set ourselves up for disappointment again.

Let me encourage you today to keep trying.

Keep aspiring.

Keep persisting.

Keep setting ambitious goals.

I know that feel as though you are just setting yourself up for disappointment again, but try not to be so hard on yourself and build the resilience that you need to be successful.

It may take a few attempts to stop smoking, lose weight, start a business from home or achieve your financial goals, but it will be worth it when you get there.

So don’t be afraid of disappointing yourself (or the people around you), but hang in there and keep trying.

Because the disappointment of not trying at all will be far greater in the end.
