…but you can change your interpretation.
- You stand on the scale, and despite a week of being meticulously careful and tracking everything you eat, it shows a gain.
- You put yourself on a budget, hoping to buy a new car, but you still can’t swing it.
- You clean the house so you can have a romantic evening with your significant other, and the first thing he notices is the one part of the living room that’s not as clean as he wanted it.
Sometimes, things just don’t go as expected. Sometimes, they don’t go the way we wanted. Sometimes, they just suck.
However, denying what is happening is not a strategy to changing the results.
Instead of looking at unexpected or unwanted results as “bad” or a “failure,” look at them as “feedback.” Do it without judgment. What you did got you the results you now have. If you wish to have different results, do something different.
