We're so focused on what we don't have that we're constantly struggling for more. The focus is on what we haven't achieved rather than on what we have. We gravitate toward the negative instead of seeing the positive.
Instead, take time to savor your victories, no matter how small. Enjoy your success. Enjoy the progress you've made, especially when you can look back and see the obstacles you've overcome. But there's more.

Your own success in life must be compared against your own life. Look at where you've been and how far you've come. Look at who you were and who you are now.
Are there more things you want to accomplish? Of course, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy what you've accomplished so far.
When you appreciate what you have and what you've done, you can look to the future with a sense of expectancy and positive energy. You can set new goals. You generate new energy and motivation.
It's really a matter of perspective. Stop comparing yourself to the other guy or the TV commercial. Don't let others tell you how to be happy.
Be happy with who you are and have faith that God will continue to reveal what He wants for you in the future.
