Yesterday, my musician nephew left New York State to move to Austin, TX, to give his love for playing music and writing songs a real chance. He's been quite successful locally, but he wants to do something bigger! Getting into the music industry is very difficult so they say, but that isn't stopping him from going for it! We are all so proud of him for doing this, but we miss him already! I think he will be home sick at first and may want to come back home...we are encouraging him to give it a year to see what happens. If it doesn't work out, he can always come back even if we have to go get him!
I can relate what he is doing to some of the features about Sparkpeople and this process...set goals for yourself. Start out small so you can be successful and things just snowball into place. That's how I've done this and it works! I was not a goal-setter kind of person before, but I see how it works and have learned to believe that it does work! Go for it! Don't let anyone tell you can't do something! Have a great support system and ignore the nay sayers. My nephew is an inspiration to me and my family!!
I love your blog - Taking the "baby-step" route was different for me too in this journey. I always put such high demands on myself that I was never going to obtain them. I actually heard of the baby-step approach in Joyce Meyers book "Look Great Feel great". I was a couple years into my journey before I heard of Sparks. This is a fantastic website! 1994 days ago
