You thought you’d have accomplished X by now. You haven’t and you are upset about it.
Is the problem that you have not accomplished it by now, or is the problem that you are upset about it?
Let’s explore – Is the purpose of life to accomplish that by then, or is the purpose of life to be happy?
Your inner mental construct is the problem – because it was not met with what happened on the outside.
Once you become aware of the real problem, it’s easy to fix – on the inside.
And….and…you can always keep moving toward your goals – while being happy.
