When looking at the big picture, we all know that how we finish is more important than where we start. Many successful people started out in life with the odds against them, & came through winners. They didnít let their starting situation determine their final outcome. Think about itÖthis same philosophy can apply to everything we do.
When working towards goals, forget that you may have started out at a disadvantage, met hurdles or made mistakes along the way. Move past the past! Donít get discouraged. Donít blame your past!
Stop looking back & start looking forward. Then, you will move ahead in leaps & bounds.
I was getting frustrated when something in my daily routine would get me off track from getting in all the steps I wanted for that day. I found that if I leave home earlier in the morning, take the long way around my block and walk past my bus stop I gain an extra 500 or so steps. If I make my connection to my next bus, I get off 1 stop sooner than my usual bus stop. Coming home at night I do the same thing in reverse.
My goal is to walk 12K steps per day instead of 10K!
