Record your breakthroughs. Stuff happens, daily and continually. You often have a flash of insight, some great words, a strong reaction. But unless you capture them, they disappear like a rare bird seen at a distance. Record your reactions on your phone, note them on a scrap of paper, remind yourself of what took place. Capture the moment.
Mindset: A focus on success and the components of it provide for repeatable victories, which feed self-esteem.
