A goal without a plan is only but a wish, a dream without faith is fleeting and amiss.

I find my lack of faith gets in the way more often than I'd like. I also sometime find my failed goals lacking enough of a detailed plan or steps to "make it so." But when I look back at what I have accomplished my confidence is restored...and just thinking about how badly I want _____ I start to form a more detailed plan.

These are the areas I need help in working on too.

Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.
Purposely choose your thoughts-what you believe-you achieve-Be careful what you think

Dittos Chan, I'm making huge radical changes myself, so I understand you very well. I'll just have to do a posting about that soon.

Hugs xoxo

Good post Anita. I've been away from SparkPeople for awhile, not completely but just posting my exercise and saving messages on Outlook to read later. I'm in the process of making radical changes in all aspects of my life and I have been in "Cognitive closure" as my son calls it, but I'm coming up for air. Hello and I will catch up with all of those saved posts soon. I'm rowing, losing weight on my new program: The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet, and organizing my home and life. Whew!

Do you find that some of your sentences begin with...

"I wish I could....."

Well...shouldn't they really begin with...

"I don't think I could....."

Or perhaps...

"I'd like to...but I'll never get around to....."

In my life...wishes play no part.

And neither should they in YOUR life, either!

I'm fast coming to the realization that if I stop believing that I CAN do what a lot of people whom I aspire to be like do...then I know that I will be defeated before I start!

In reality...most wishing comes down to laziness.

You either can't really be bothered that much...or you aren't willing to put in five solid years of effort (both mentally and physically) into turning your wishes into achievements.

For example...there are one or two things that, even a year or so ago, I used to wish that I could do.

Now...I just focus on what I KNOW that I CAN do that is just outside my comfort zone...and DO that!

Once you begin to push'll realize that most of those people whom you don't believe that you will ever be on a par with...don't really SEEM that far away as they once were.'s all about balance.

I'm more than happy to only reach SO high...but once it begins to encroach upon my LIFESTYLE on a day-to-day basis...then that will do for me! with all things success-related...if what you are doing doesn't really seem much like work...then sometimes it's good to see how far you can REALLY go now and again.

Wouldn't you agree?
