Chapter 2 focus

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I'm starting to get smarter. I'm learning there are people you never tell your goals in life. They are the people who will automatically give you reasons why you will never reach those goals. Wish they came with warning labels. I am working at being able to just brush off their remarks and realize it is their problem and not mine. But I still find myself initially falling in with their thinking and throwing my newly found strength out the window. I am able to backtrack now but it is still difficult for me.

Still considering what goals to set for myself. I think because I am at such a turning point in my life right now and have so many options, it is difficult to narrow the focus. This is a nice problem to have. I guess an ah-ha moment came to me this morning. My goals will not be written in stone and if I find down the road that I want to head in a different direction, it will be fine. I give myself permission to try something new in the future that maybe hadn't even occurred to me yet.

    I've come across plenty of those nay-sayers as well. Making them come with a warning label is an excellent idea.

    Most goals are large enough that you need to break them down into smaller pieces. Then you find that those smaller pieces work regardless of what direction life takes you. I say "choose a direction and explore it". If you don't like it, there's always another direction to explore.

Keep your hopes high and don't listen to the naysayers. Just because THEY can't achieve the goal or don't even want to try, doesn't mean YOU won't be successful!!! emoticon
