It’s important to understand that taking care of you and who you are is not a selfish thing to do. The only thing you have to contribute to this world is you – your mind, your body, your spirit, your feelings, and you can’t give away what you don’t have.
If you want to work on your life, be sure that your goals are realistic. So often we decide that it’s perfection that we want and we’ll sit on the sidelines until we get it. The truth is, there is no perfection. What you need to strive for is excellence. Set your goals realistically. If you want to lose weight, be real about where you are in your life. If you want to change your career, be real about your choices.
