How to Know When You Need a Break
I wasn’t entirely sure I’d be writing this post. It’s a lot different than pretty much all of the others I’ve been seeing out there, and I didn’t think it would be received well. Not for any negative reasons, but because it was against the norm of what was experienced by others.
I started writing this more so for me, to be cathartic and get my thoughts down “on paper”. The plan was not to release or promote this.
Then a wise person urged me to go ahead and publish it. They said “it might be different from others, but it is yours.”
So with that being said, here we go. This was my first FinCon experience.
Attitude is Everything
There is something to be said for having a positive attitude. For one, it makes life a heck of a lot easier when you see the glass as half full, instead of half empty.
I’ve written in the past about the power of positive thinking, and having faith in your own abilities. Having confidence in yourself isn’t always easy. But it can be learned. And it can become a behavior that is honed, built upon, and improved.
The more work you put into it, the easier it gets. And the growth compounds from there. Baby steps — to feel better about yourself, your goals, and your overall purpose.
But what happens if you push too hard… You go too far… You lean a little too much into a world that you’re not quite ready for?
That’s when it’s best to know your limitations. Identify your triggers.
Because if and when that momentum begins to slow, you may start rolling backwards down that hill again.
And sometimes, instead of pushing yourself forward, you need to know when to take a break.
