Sometimes, it can be tough to recover when we mess up. You kinda want to just throw in the towel and say “screw it” for the rest of the day/week/month/year. But a mistake isn’t the end of the world, and it’s certainly not a reason to give up. You don’t need to wait for a whole new day/week/month/year to get back on track. You can work on getting back on track immediately. Drinking some water is always a great, easy first step.
Remember, don’t get greedy. It’s great to shoot for perfection, but don’t let it become the enemy of the good. Just because you won’t have a perfect day, doesn’t mean it still can’t be a good day, or even a great day. Small progress is still progress! Getting over your setback and taking one small step in the right direction is still one step closer to reaching your goals.
Giving up on your goal because of one setback is like slashing your other three tires because you got a flat.
