For myself and all my friends who have a dream….each day take one more step…always.
1. Keep your determination. Stride forward.
“Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.” ~ Denis Waitley
2. Surround yourself with positives
And to help take that un-demoralized trudge forward…to turn each step into a the springful celebration of journey surround yourselves, as much as possible, with the greats.
For small people (not talking stature) will jealously hold you down, feed you a steady diet of discouragement and will go out of their way to block you from the figurative stars.
The great ones will spark your inspiration.
(Of course there are good friends who’ll give you fair assessment too)
3. Keep it in perspective
Keep the journey in perspective. In the words of the Wise Girlfriends Coffee Cliche “Compare and Despair…yeah, don’t do that.”
“It is the mark of great people to treat trifles as trifles and important matters as important.” ~ Doris Lessing
4. And enjoy.
“Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it.” ~ Sai Baba
If the spark of wonder, of playfulness, of quiet enjoyment and love leave you…what is left to you? Your beautiful goal isn’t quite as beautiful is it?
Ok. Happy and determined. Deep breathe. Ready to take on the World.
