Like in American Football, a team fights for the ground they make for every yard of play, you should not focus on the end product in your life. Instead, take small incremental steps to improve yourself in your life and at work, to get rid of the habits that hold you back, and making the right decisions in the moments that matter.

Mistakes happen like it or not. It’s a part of life. It’s what makes us human. What is not right though is people’s inability to say sorry when they’ve messed up. That creates even more anger and frustration for the other person. Be mindful and start saying sorry if you want to build bridges, and let your ego sleep.
“Being able to say ‘I am sorry’ makes a difference in your life. It is the key that opens the cage of guilt.” – Nansia Movidi
So many people out there worry about how they come across to others. It often gets so bad that people develop an inferiority complex and then spend the rest of their entire life as a prisoner in their own lives. We resort to putting on acts for others – you know, the ‘fake it till you make it’ type. You need to start prioritizing yourself over others and start to live the life that you are meant to live.
“All you can do is be yourself, present the most organic version of yourself and allow the rest to play itself out. You are not responsible for what people do or do not understand.” – S. McNutt
Some people spend so much time and energy, trying to be perfect to please others. You probably already know it, but perfection is hard to achieve. Instead, perfection is something we always work towards – it keeps us hungry and fuels our personal growth, and allows us to be our authentic self.
“You don’t have to be perfect to inspire others. Let them be inspired by your imperfections and how you deal with them.” – @Inspirewithyas
