We held a food drive this past Saturday the local food pantry and it did not go as well as I hoped. I found myself feeling disappointed until I thought about how I always tell people that every canned good or box of dry food does make a difference. This thought in turn made me think about how appreciative I was for the people that stopped by to say hello and drop off donations. I met some new people and we raised awareness of the pantry. Overall, I guess it was a great day.
Why is it so easy to see things as disappointments? Many of my friends tend to focus on their missed opportunities rather than their successes. Now there is nothing wrong with being competitive, I consider it a requirement to be a successful entrepreneur. However, you also must take the time to enjoy your victories and congratulate yourself. Try seeing the small things as wins, instead of not being good enough. In the end, you’ll find you had a good day too.
