What is progress? What does it mean to you? According to C. S. Lewis, “We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be.
And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer.
If you are on the wrong road,progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”
Progress does not mean getting stuck in a rut. It means moving closer to your dream. It means taking responsibility for your life. It means having the courage to face your fears. It means having the courage to tell yourself the truth. It means being your true self. It means having the opportunity to do what you love to do. It means having the courage to walk away from the wrong people. That is progress.
Remember, it does not matter what you do, if you are not on the right track, it is never too late to turn back. Do not stuck yourself in a rut. Because progress means getting back on track. Will you get back on track?
Opinions are just opinions. So why worry yourself about opinions? Do not do that. You are better than other people’s opinions of you. You are smarter than other people’s opinions of you. Let people say whatever they want about you. They don’t count. They don’t matter. But you matter. You count. And that is why you should focus on yourself. That is why you should stay focused on what you are doing, where you are going, and how to get there.
“If you want to achieve your dreams, do not focus on perfection.”
Do not fight people’s opinions of you. You are created to make a statement, not to gossip about other people’s lives. What other people are doing shouldn’t bother you. What you should be thinking about is what you are doing. Because if you don’t get it right, you will never achieve your dreams.
What you are doing right now matters more than other people’s opinions. Let them talk. While they are talking, you are walking. Do not doubt yourself. Do not question your abilities to get things done. If you believe you can do it, you can surely do it. If you believe in your dreams, you will surely get there. Believe in your life. Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities to get things done. Focus on what you can control, not what you cannot control.
Focusing on what you cannot control is like worrying about something that is not going to happen. You don’t know what is going to happen next. But what you do know is what you are doing right now, where you are right now, not where you are going.
So if you cannot control something, if you don’t know what is going to happen next, then why worry yourself about it? Do not worry yourself about what is beyond your power. You cannot control life. You cannot control everything, but you can control yourself. You cannot control everything, but you can control your responses to it.
If you want to achieve success in your life, focus on what you can control, not what you cannot control. If you want to achieve your dreams, focus on progress, not perfection. Will you do it for yourself?
