A perspective 

Setting goals is a key step in accomplishments. However, I  often see clients with lofty goals that may not even be realistic.  Holding ourselves to goals that we cannot reach can damage our  self-esteem and inhibit our interest in trying to reach these goals  again.

When setting your mind to reach a goal, ask yourself “Is this  realistic and can I actually attain this goal?” If the answer is no,  consider breaking the goal down into intermediate steps or modifying it  altogether.
Empower yourself to change what you can, and let go  of the rest. Don’t expend your energy trying to control others. Focus on  yourself,first.There’s a reason why the saying “When life throws you  lemons, make lemonade” has been around for years. When things aren’t  going right, ask yourself “Could things be worse?” or “Is there anything  I can take out of this that can be a benefit to me?”
More often than not, there is a positive aspect to things that  happen, even those that feel negative. Try to view it in a different  light and you may find your attitude turn around. It can  be very difficult to focus on what is directly in front of you and  ensure that you are fully present.
Today’s technology and expectation to be connected or available to  work at all times is one of the most prominent challenges people face  when trying to be present in the “here and now.”
Listen to what your heart and mind tell you about what  you need to do. Learning to reflect on your inner thoughts and feelings  will help you trust putting them into action.
Stop and see what it is that’s keeping you stuck right  now. Oftentimes it’s a blind spot you can’t see, so taking time to null  things over helps you see more clearly. Is it a decision you’re afraid  to make? Are certain people bringing you down? Are you in a cycle of  negative thinking? Or whatsoever,You must be aware.For life improvement, I suggest the reader put life on  pause, for at least a few moments a day, and consider what you’d like to  accomplish today, and the vibe you want to carry.
Years ago, a client of mine was searching for a guidepost or mantra  by which to live his life. After much soul-searching, he decided that,  with every decision he makes, every day, he wanted to write the “better  story.”
The better story might be getting up earlier rather than sleeping in  [or] reaching out to help someone instead of passively ignoring their  need… This turned out to be an enormous gift to me, as I now try to do  this every day surely is a positive activity.
You don’t need an overhaul to improve the quality of your life. Just a  few steps can help to boost your well-being and make your days more  meaningful. And the great part is that you can start today.Zaira Khan
