Very Good Morning ….
Thought for the day:
It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward. – Louis Sachar
While playing sports in high school, I was often told by my coaches to keep your eyes on the prize. The prize being to win.
After high school lots of things change. What we think of as winning changes as do the prizes we want. But the basic principles of how to win stay the same.
Your prize may change from winning a sports game to:
Losing 10 pounds
Getting a promotion
Buying your first home…
There will always be things we want in life. Some are just a passing whim, others are real desires or prizes. When you come across one of those prizes, don’t let it slip away. Keep it in focus. Remembering what you want and why, so you can continue to move toward it step by step.
That is the essence of keeping your eyes on the prize. If there is something you really want, keep it in your thoughts. We often come up with great goals when feeling optimistic and strong, but then as life moves on, we get caught up in our routines and schedules. Suddenly a strong want or goal slips away.
Just keep your goals in front of you. If you see your goals on a regular basis, you are more likely to be motivated to work on them. As you consistently work on them, you will be moving closer and closer to accomplishment.
People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily. -Zig Ziglar
Keeping your goals in front of you on a regular basis will refresh your positive mind set. you may still hit a rough patch at times, but that’s normal. Setting up reminders are like having a personal cheering section. They are there to support you and remind you of how you felt when you first chose the goal – inspired, strong, and optimistic.
Good luck with your goals.
Cheers To Your Success!
