Keep reminding yourself of what your "big bold goals" are.
What do you want out of life?
Do you dream of great and heroic things?
This is the second of a two-part series beginning December 8, 2016.
So, you have a big, bold goal in mind - or maybe several! Now that you know you want it, how do you get going?
Before you sleep, picture yourself living your goal. Think about how it feels; see it as your reality. This is charging after them. Your life design is working!
"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward."
~ Amelia Earhart
As our son Trey says many times, “Never give up.”
"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." ~ Thomas A. Edison
Today going to the dental office, or to teach orthodontics, or cooking dinner, or sitting on the couch talking to my husband Claude, is glorious. Most moments. When I realize I am not enjoying a moment, as soon as I can realize it, I begin focusing my attention on gratitude and on my goals.
The goals keep changing. We meet goals, and some goals change form or meaning. Some goals are merely stepping stones to more important and wonderful parts of life, and as such are part of the journey, yet not met in the form we imagined. Yet all very important.
Every night Claude and I say together, “I know, within me now, is the Divine ability to manifest or attract everything I need or desire. All I desire is on its way. It will arrive on time, and in even greater amounts than I have imagined.”
And every morning we say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you for the miracles and magnificent outcomes of today.” Then we review what they were that day.
"Today is life--the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto." ~ Dale Carnegie
