"There is no rest for success."

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Just a passing thought that struck me today...To be successful one must be prepared and ready to seize an opportunity when it comes knocking...it doesn't always mean trying to throw in some exercise, it isn't always physical...it's mental and spiritually as well...learning from each mistake to get better the next time around, and the next time around until the opportunity comes along to make a difference, you will...There is no rest for success, but the rewards are so worth working for.

    Good points. Sometimes though I think we don't pause long enough to enjoy the successes that we have achieved and the blessings God has given.

Focus on what IS working!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Consistency is the key to reaching a goal...Often we get slowed down by thinking that we could have done better, we should have done more...What has actually been accomplished is either minimized if recognized at all...Instead of focusing in on what didn't work, focus on what IS working and build from there...To focus on your weakness gives them more power, more strength over the task at hand and reduces the precious time that could be better used...Pump up the positive self-talk each day to strength the total person you are!

The countdown is on!

Sunday, November 15, 2009

We are so close to the end of this year, you can practically touch it...but no worries...the countdown begins when you take the first step to making the change for a better you...in some areas that can be large steps, while in others it may mean babysteps (even crawling) for what counts is that you start...today the countdown begins for me.

Everyday you have a choice to make...make it good!

Never pass up the opportunity to do the right thing for yourself...take a second, it usually doesn't take that long to decide, and choose to do the right thing. You'll be so happy when you do!

It's not about perfection!

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

We are not perfect...that is part of the definition of being human...then why do we demand it of ourselves...It's one thing to strive for excellence, or doing the very best that we can, but it usually doesn't stop there! There's has to be room for learning, for practice...and although the goal may be 2 sets of 10, if you can do 2 sets of 5 you've done more than you've been doing and that is an accomplishment...and oh my gosh, give yourself a hug because you came back to do another 2 sets of 5 the next day...and maybe a look at me as you do it again the third and it starts to feel really good and a crazy idea shoots through your head on the fourth day that maybe, I can do 2 sets of 7...it may not seem like a lot, but it better than when you were not doing anything at all...

It's not about perfection! It's about building a strong foundation for a better tomorrow! Celebrate your imperfections, it's part of what makes you unique, and continue to practice...knowing that practice will get you where you want to be, while beating yourself up for not being perfect won't!
