You can have all the goals in the world, but unless you show up, they stay as thoughts, not accomplishments!
I get it, sometimes we are just not in the mood… but do you know what I have found approximately 98.2% of the time? Doing it anyways HELPS your mood – knowing you pushed through when you didn’t want to and did something to better your life is powerful, and a mood booster!
Show up. Get it done. Bask in the glory after – that’s the only way to achieve your goals.
“I could never do that!”
… I hear it too often. I am no different than any other girl who decided the status quo wasn’t working for her, so it was time to take some measures towards the greatness I am capable of.
Truthfully? I think most – not all, but most – of us have a girl boss in us, it’s just buried deep!
What would happen if you gave yourself a year, or even 6 months, to TRY and see what girl boss things you could do?
If you have dreams and belief in yourself, you have everything you need.
Let’s chat. Let’s be girl bosses, together.
Helen Keller. Thomas Edison. Ludwig van Beethoven. Lou Ferrigno. Juliette Low.
All of these names are well known, because each of these people did AMAZING things. The most amazing of all might be that they all OVERCAME hearing impairments in pursuit of their goals and accomplishments!
I will confess, at a younger age, I thought my own personal hearing loss was a dead end for many things. I didn’t know technology was going to make so many things so much easier, and I didn’t realize that one could still be successful despite the loss of a major sense. The age I lost my hearing is a critical time for self development, and I will confess my sudden hearing loss left me mentally and emotionally crippled for some time.
But that was way back then… this is now!
Someday, I see my OWN name associated with success despite hearing loss. I KNOW I can do anything I want. I know I can achieve anything I set my mind to. I know I will face OBSTACLES, but those are simply my OPPORTUNITIES – to rise, to shine, to overcome… to find a workaround!
I know my hearing loss can’t stop me. If anything, I vow to let it propel me.
Obstacles into opportunities!
A new year looms and many are ready to embark on journeys to better health, wellness, career changes… the possibilities are endless.
It’s the start that stops most people.
Why is the start so hard? Because it marks the beginning of change, of something different.
And sure, that’s daunting and overwhelming… but that’s also how you get going, how you become better, and shine brighter, and grow more.
You really don’t have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great. And once you are going, you will look back and wish you had started sooner!
What are you waiting for? What will YOU make your end-of-the-year mission to achieve? What powerful momentum will YOU bring into 2017?
Don’t let the start stop you!
This is very apt, for me right now. Very apt. Yes, I sometimes do feel like I am spinning my wheels – that’s when I know I need to step back, be gentle with myself, realign myself with my goals, and just keep going.
I know, I say those words a lot… because I live by them! I allow myself to feel, step back, and then I keep going. It’s the only option other than quitting, and ain’t nobody got time for that!
We are in prime time for people to want to throw in the towel. It’s cooler out, we wear more layers so our bodies are covered and any weight gain isn’t as evident, shorter days and less sunlight makes us want to hole up…
I get it, I struggle with this myself, but I try to push past that and keep moving. I try to tell myself the above, that anything is better than nothing. Because it is. Success is the sum of small efforts.
Push forth. Do something, no matter how slowly, just don’t stop. It is a lot harder to start again once you stop, than it is to just keep going.
Persevere. You can do this.
