At the same time, Leicher warns against dwelling on the past too much and negative self-talk. She encourages the idea forward thinking.

She suggests that you identify your goals (where you want to be) and work backwards to your current situation, which she says is your starting point.

Create a plan and set smaller objectives that you can plot on a timeline to keep you on track, Leicher shares.

If you feel that you haven't moved forward enough to your own liking, that's your starting point.
