How strongly do you feel…about the things you think you want? Are you willing to go to bat for them wholeheartedly, to give it your all? Or at the first sign of trouble will you say to yourself something like “Oh, I guess this wasn’t meant to be. I’d better find something else to do although I really liked the idea of doing (you fill in the blank)” Did you know Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person to climb to the peak of Mt. Everest in May of 1953 actually failed to reach its summit in 1952? He felt like a failure even when he was being honored for his valiant attempt. It was only when he shook his fist at a picture of the mountain and said something like “you’re not going to beat me!” And then he gathered himself up, got himself ready, took a deep breath and started up the summit again, this time to be victorious. So how strongly do you feel about the goals you have for yourself? Are you willing to put it all on the line to achieve them or will you back down when the going gets a little tough?

Don’t let it haunt you…your past. Don’t carry it around with you everywhere you go. Don’t let it take up all that room in your thoughts. It needs to be left behind.
We all make mistakes. We’ve all done things that we’ve been less than proud of. All of us. The point ere is- do we learn from these things and move on successfully- or do we just keep reliving them over and over and over again?
Your choice. Stay stuck with the “ghosts” of yesterday or move forward towards a brighter tomorrow?
Choose wisely…your friends. It has been said that we tend to “take on” the characteristics of those closest to us. Do you want to be around people who encourage you and make you smile? Do you want to be around people who support your goals? (And you do the same for them)
Think about your friendships. Is there one that you have been questioning for awhile? Is there something you could do to improve that relationship and have you tried?
If so, it may be time to move on. Sad, yes it is, but we all know when they point has been reached. We need to offer support but also receive it as well.
Cultivate it as much as you can…an attitude of calm. Count to ten before you get angry. Instead of getting into an argument, walk away until you calm down. Take things at a slower pace when you can- you don’t have to be in a rush to go everywhere and do everything. Slow down a little. Spend some quiet time- maybe a walk or listening to relaxing music.
Cut off anger and drama before it takes hold. Cultivate that peaceful feeling.
It’s always the right time…to begin. If you have the idea, the dream, the goal- then it’s time. You will find a way to make it happen. It is why the dream lives on inside you- because you have what it takes to bring it into the physical world.
Use that power and use it now- don’t let your dream die an early death.
