I distinguish between giving in and giving up. I can always adjust my approach while keeping my goals in sight. Giving in can lead me to victory.
Life is full of beginnings and endings. Leaving the past behind prepares me to move forward. I may exchange something good for something even greater.
I recognize changing circumstances. If my family grows, it may make more sense for me to continue working rather than return to school. Some changes take place within my own mind. My thoughts and opinions shift. I may support a different political candidate while maintaining the same principles.
Accommodating others matters to me.
Serving people adds meaning to my life and makes me happy. I am open to trying out their suggestions as long as they are constructive.
I monitor my results. Specific goals and timelines let me measure my progress and adjust my plans to become more productive. A sense of comfort and security also assures me that I am doing the right thing.
Today, I advance along my chosen path even if I take a few detours. Success requires flexibility, perseverance, and the ability to give in to changing ideas or circumstances.
