In all our plans for growth we will run into limiting factors. Classes cost money, jobs require transportation, eating well requires having the money and time to buy and prepare the food. When we start planning what we want to do we need to take into account these limitations. Recognizing these limits is a key to making realistic plans.
One of the keys to protecting our confidence is to keep our plans realistic. When we set our sights too high we find ourselves set up for failure. We need to be able to build upon successes to build confidence and to succeed we need to set realistic goals, and we need to stick by them. We also need to set challenging goals so that we can grow.
