Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - The reason why people give up is because they focus on how far they have to go instead of how far they've come.

SparkPeople's Comments

It's definitely important to look toward your goals, but it's also good to keep one eye looking back to remind yourself of how far you've come! Remember your accomplishments the next time you have a bad day--you ARE making progress!

That was me for a while until I wised up. Much nicer focusing on how far I've come.

This is truly how I think sometimes. I forget to celebrate how far I've come since last year.

I love this and it's so true. I'm trying very hard not to focus on how many I have to lose and be super excited with what I've lost.

Yes, it is a good thing to look back once in a while to see how far you've come and what you've experienced or conquered to get where you are.

Reminds me of a hiking trail I ran in the woods once, I was so tempted to double back and give up - I didn't though, and was so proud of myself for finishing it!

This is so TRUE! I hope to figure out how to post this on my SPARKPAGE. I need this for those days I'm not feeling quite so motivated.....

Well said....

Turning negative thinking into positive is a major achievement. It makes getting to where I'm going, an easier journey. While I still have a distance to travel, I've already come so far!!
