You have a lot of difficult things to deal with. That’s no excuse to do less than your best.
In fact, it’s a reason to up your game. It’s an opportunity to boost your effectiveness, your knowledge, your energy level.
You could easily and justifiably gain the sympathy of others, and of yourself. But as you already know through long years of experience, that won’t do you any good.
What will help immensely is to operate at peak performance regardless of the situation. Things are tough, life is unfair, and yet you can be better than you’ve ever been.
The energy required to articulate your excuses could be better used to tackle your challenges. Plus, in addition to making real progress, you’ll feel a whole lot better about yourself.
Grab the difficulties, pull inspiration and determination out of them. Move forward, more purposeful and effective than ever before.
