Put One Foot In Front Of The Other

“He who fails to plan is planning to fail” Winston Churchill

Do you have somewhere that you want to be? A career choice? A position in the community? A home in a specific neighbourhood?

How are you going to get there? Win a lottery?

We can all hope for the big freedom-inducing win but for most of us, buying the ticket only sweetens the pot of the winner.

So in the likelihood that your ship never arrives in port, what are you going to do? What’s your plan?

Think about where you want to be in 10 years. Financially. Spiritually. Physically. Socially. Career-wise.

How far are you from attaining that vision?

What are you going to need to get there?  More education? A healthier diet? More exercise?

Now, break it down. What are the steps that you can take now to work toward those goals.

Now break those steps down again. Then again. Until you have easy to manage steps that you can start today and which will steer you in the right direction.

Make some sort of reminder for yourself of your goal that you can carry around with you. For instance, if you want to save up for a special vacation but can’t ever seem to put money aside, carry a photo of the location in your wallet. Each time you reach in to make a purchase, look at the photo. Do you really need that latte now?*

Putting one foot in front of the other, even if they are only baby steps, will get you closer to attaining your goal.

Keeping the goal at the forefront of your mind will keep you walking in the right direction.

Plan for success!

What is the first small step that you will take toward reaching your goal?

“When someone tells me “no,”

it doesn’t mean I can’t do it,

it simply means

I can’t do it with them.”

30-Day Challenge, Day 10

Nine days down, beginning day 10. Twenty more to go.

We are a third of the way there already!

My yoga challenge is going well.  I have been focusing on flexibility over strength building. My transitions from pose to pose are becoming more fluid. Each day my forehead gets ever-so-slightly closer to my knees but I am still far from being able to fold in half.  Yet seeing daily progress is keeping me motivated.

How’s your challenge going?

The Bright-Side Of The Web: Danielle LaPorte

It is hard to describe Danielle LaPorte but these words come to mind: vivacious, inspirational, cut-to-the-chase, motivational, energetic, Canadian…and the list goes on, and on, and on.

I do not know Danielle personally and only discovered her a few months ago through some random kismet connection through another site. Don’t ya love those! I immediately subscribed to her site and created a folder in my email system to save every post I received.  (Her site is one of my links in Positive Websites I Like →)

Although all of her posts are thought provoking, I have selected this post as this week’s Bright-Side of the Web. Enjoy!

From celebration to devastation, who can you call at 2 a.m.?
