Enjoying the road to accomplishment

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Stop living life for what's around the corner and start enjoying the walk down the street.

- Grant L. Miller, motivational guru

It's possible to be a little too focused. With blinders on, it becomes easy to completely live in our vision of where we will be in the future, while ignoring the improvements that we have made in the present. The road to a healthy lifestyle is a long trip. While it's very important to realize what we are shooting for, we also need to make sure that we keep our heads in the present to enjoy the progress we've made. If your goal is to lose weight, instead of waiting to celebrate until you lose it all, enjoy today's small victories and take advantage of your improved health now. This approach serves as motivation for any aspiration in life. Set ambitious goals and enjoy the road to accomplishing those goals, because life might pass you by if you are always planning for tomorrow without ever seeing today.

"This is for life so enjoy the little things along the way like a painting it takes alot of stokes but also the painter steps back along the way puts up his thumb to see what he has done so far,and smiles, before you know it he will have created a masterpiece. But enjoying each day he gets closer"
