I used to put time pressure on myself to achieve various goals in a certain time scale. This pressure however created a daily unrest in my life and as a result it slowed my progress down. It took me a long time to realise that things happen in life when they are meant to happen. I used to get frustrated and try to force the outcome of events which only delayed them further. I took whatever action I need to take and then started to learn to trust that things were unfolding for me at the perfect time. By trying to force things it meant that whatever I was experiencing was not sustainable. I came to the relaxed conclusion that I was going somewhere beautiful and I didn't care how long it took me to get there.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
