Personal Expectations. Is your perception off? Do you miss seeing some of your wins because you only see what you have not done? Are your expectations setting yourself up for failure. When we set them in such a way that we have trouble seeing our wins we will only notice our failures. Then we will become more discouraged and less likely to succeed. First focus on what you have done, how you have shown up and the good. Then put a plan together for the things you still need to do and set yourself up for success.
