THE TRUTH ABOUT PROGRESS
Ryan Milton Aug 2017
Progress is the most beautiful thing we can ever experience.
Our bodies, minds and souls crave progress in every avenue of life.
Progress is the sign of growth and growth is the number one sign of life. If we are not growing, we are dying. And if you have ever gone any length of time at a stale mate in life, you know exactly what I am talking about.
One thing we all need to understand about progress though is that it is not linear.
Progress is not simply a graph that starts low and climbs at a constant rate over time. Progress will take you through whirlwinds of experiences, ups and downs, flat out stops and even long lasting plateaus.
If you do not know this and plan for this, your entire path can become blurry and you will likely panic and fall off course.
How do we gauge progress?
In each and every small step towards our worthy ideal.
Milestones will come. Big successes will come.
But those moments are not the only gauge of progress we experience.
Every single day when we take 1 step closer to our goals is when we get to experience progress.
Even if things seem down or at a halt, doing what you can where you are with what you have can make all the difference in the world and where you end up in it.
Expect down times, Expect plateaus and remember to plan for them.
Progress happens every single day no matter what.
You either get to progress towards your goals, or you progress away from them.
The choice is yours.
