You Deserve More Credit

Hey You, In The Matters of You,

Have you ever got hurt and needed to recover from an injury?  Have you ever lost the same weight 10 lbs  10 times?  Have you ever made and lost the same 10 k ?

If you are like me you have.  .  .  I recently suffered a pretty big injury.  I lost the entire feeling in my left arm and luckily it wasn’t anything like a stroke but it was something that set me back from a time where I felt to be in some of the best shape of my like to being almost to zero.

Every feel like zero.  .  .  In something in your life?  Your relationship w/ God, your family, your livelihood, your community?  Yes we have all been broken down to zero.

So was I but I dug down and put a plan to get back to board as we used to say.  To get back to my average.  So it sucked my strength as an example was 5% , then 20% then 30% and gradually coming up.

In the mean time because my injury was in my shoulder and my arm,  I worked out and achieve breakthroughs in my lower body that I haven’t seen for over 6 years.

So here is my point.   I had to have an accident  to figure out two things just because I am not as good as I once was,  I am still getting 20% better every month compared to where my worst was.  .  .  and because I couldn’t work on the upper half of my body my lower got body got stronger than it has been in years.

So many times we don’t take credit for getting better because is wasn’t as good as it once was.  We are 20 lbs lighter than we were just months ago but not our 20 year low of 180.  We are making more money but not our best year ever.  We have a great relationship but its not what it was during the honey moon.

You deserve more credit for being better.  Give it to yourself.
