“Before you begin a thing remind yourself that difficulties and delays quite impossible to foresee are ahead. You can only see one thing clearly, and that is your goal. Form a mental vision of that and cling to it through thick and thin.” ~ Kathleen Norris
Coming into 2011, I know most of you worked on your goals and intentions for the new year. I hate to say this, but making resolutions are not going to serve you very well because resolutions come with a default for failure. When you make a resolution, that is all you do. It is just a thought, or a wish, yet when you set a goal or an intention, you also make a PLAN…which is taking action!! Your plan has steps to make that goal or intention a doable process. You can make resolutions, but then turn them into actionable goals and intentions. It is up to you!
Keep in mind that no matter what your goal or intention may be,at some point and time there will be some obstacles or delays. You cannot foresee these obstacles until you reach them; but know they are coming and be okay with that, it’s just part of the process. If you desire this goal or intention with all your heart, then those obstacles will effortlessly turn into golden opportunities. If it is a goal or intention that does not make your heart sing, then those obstacles will get bigger and bigger and block your progress.
What were your goals for 2011? Did you have a plan for action? Where do you stand with this today? We are nearly 4 months into this new year…don’t let it slip away from you! Keep focused. Don’t forget to have fun and reach out when you need to! Having a friend there to talk to and turn to is a big help, I know it is for me. I’d be lost without my buddy!
Let me know if you ever need anything.
Make it happen my friends!
