How to stick with something you started.

May 19, 2021

We get a lot of questions about how to stick with something you started, like a prayer commitment or a new habit to make your life better. We don’t have a trick, but we do have a way that can help.

That way involves changing the perfectionism mindset. Using our daily journal as an example of starting something new, we explain how perfectionism actually holds you back in life and leaves you with more pain. Ouch!
