Secrets of Success

Looking Back



When you need a reason to get back on track, stay motivated, whatever... Look back. Look back to when you first started your journey. How did you feel? What did you want? How does that compare to now? What have you learned since then? Too often we forget what we've accomplished and let negative thoughts into our lives.
