In some weeks, the year 2016 will be coming to an end with many people going back to the list of things they wanted to achieve in the year.

Do you feel you under-achieved? Do you feel disappointed for not doing more? Are you angry that you were able to achieve so little?

Then, this word from Betty Irabor is for you.

The publisher of Genevieve Magazine, on her Instagram page shared some Monday Motivations that would help you appreciate the little you have done so far.

She said,

Monday Motivation
Starting again after starting again
A while ago, I found myself in a not so good place. I was moaning and asking my daughter “what have I actually achieved? I felt I hadn’t achieved as much as I planned..my goals, my dreams. I had tried a few new ventures and they fell through; some because of the declining economy and some because “life happens”. It was one of those days when you look at yourself and feel “God, my life is passing me by and I have achieved nothing”.

After I had finished moaning, my daughter began to itemize everything I had achieved, most of which I had underplayed , she reminded me of many of my morning dew inspirations. She quoted out of my book to remind me of how far and how well I had come.

She reminded me of the reasons I shld be grateful and not despair. She became the mother, while I was the child. I soaked in her healing words. I began to gain my positive strength back and I gradually snapped out of it. I began to focus on what I had achieved and not what I hadn’t. Then I got up and began to move into action and chase those dreams again with renewed vigour.

My message to you today is when you find yourself in that place where you feel like you’re drifting with no direction, a place of self doubt and maybe you see yourself as a Down right failure, take a moment to reflect on what you have achieved no matter how insignificant, go into gratitude mode and then begin to focus on your next move.

Don’t dwell too much on what you haven’t achieved rather focus on how to achieve it.., it’s never too late to start again even after starting again.. It also helps to have that one encourager in your life for moments when you don’t feel quite like a champion
