At the moment when you finally feel like you’re making progress you stop to reflect and, well, you realize you’re in the same spot you have been in, year after year after year.  A decade and then some,  past with more and more of the same.

You could…

give up or…

stop looking back, focus on today and keep going.

Any direction but back.

It’s like walking backward on a moving sidewalk.  You put all your effort into going but you end up right where you started, on your butt wondering what happened?

How did I fall, again?

No, it’s better to look at what’s in front of you.  In the here and now.  Visualize what is ahead of you and keep going.  The path is not always clear but it’s what you see behind you that keeps you from moving forward.
