Keep looking toward your dream

Saturday, June 16, 2012

To anybody who's looking toward any dream, and dealing with any battle, keep looking to that other side, that dream you're trying to reach, just don't take your eyes off that goal ahead, what you want so much.

    Great quote and a good reminder to all of us. Success really starts with a vision. Otherwise we're just drifting.

    This is so true, even though it's hard to do.

    Long story short, my 82 yo mother overcame mobility issues, regained her strength by walking laps in her apartment and then was able to walk to her car, drive alone and walk through her favorite grocery store (that was her goal). It took her 4 years and I never thought she'd do it, but she said she would and she did.

    I know she kept her goal in mind because she kept talking about how she was going to go to Kings and pick out her own produce, meats and baked goods. Stubborn determination sometimes is a good thing.

    I remember learning a long time ago that basketball players that ENVISIONED making baskets improved just as much as players who actually practiced making baskets.

    I think we often get caught up in the day-to-day struggle and lose track of the ultimate goal. This is a timely reminder for me, FL!

    That's a great quote!! It's so important to keep our eyes directed toward our goals, not the everyday ups and downs. (I know that's easier said than done, though, isn't it?!)
