"Moral courage and character go hand in hand... a man of real character is consistently courageous, being imbued with a basic integrity and a firm sense of principle."
"Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it."
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
I love the feeling of being able to spread the Spark! I have started mine and my fire is burning, now it is time to pass on the spark to get the fire of others burning. It will take a lot of courage, which I am building every day, and a sense of personal values and beliefs that I know how to stand up for. It is a wonderful thing when you see others excited about something because you helped them to see how exciting it is.
I can spread that spark through my friends, family, co-workers and people I meet on a daily basis. I am ready and excited to do my part.

"Follow your dreams, work hard, practice and persevere. Make sure you eat a variety of foods, get plenty of exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle."
I am well into my lifestyle change. Things are going smoothly and I am very happy with what I see ahead. I know there will be many obstacles to overcome, but by taking them one day at a time I will persevere. I am more motivated than ever to follow my dreams and be the me I know I can be. I am seeing so much progress that is it unbelievable: my energy levels are up, I am doing more of what I want to in life, I have gotten back to my optimistic self, I am losing inches and I am losing weight. I will pat myself on the back every day and continue on with all the changes I am seeing.

"We build our character from the bricks of habit we pile up day by day."
~ Zig Ziglar
I have created "fast break" goals several times. The first time, I used ones given by SP and for the others I used a mix of my own and SP's. Each time I have wanted to change my routine or do something a little different I created "fast break" goals. I find they really help and work. Now that I have been reading the book, I created some again and used a different one of Sp's that I have never used before. This time around I am going to try something that is difficult for me.
I love the idea of journaling, but I always have a hard time. I find it actually helps me sleep, but I have never used it for focusing myself. After the first couple of days it usually gets forgotten about, well...this time around I created a goal to write at least 10 minutes every night before bed. I figure this is a good starting point, and I hear once you get used to it, you just keep getting better. We will see, I think this is a habit that could really help me.
