Don’t Give Up!

You're stronger than you think!

In one way or another, to get the things we want in life we must work. This does not only apply to material things but to the things money can’t buy. Have you ever wanted to accomplish something so bad that the thought of it put fire in your eyes and made you smile at the same time?

If so, what happened? Did you reach your goal? For most, visualizing themselves reaching success is not an issue; the problems come in while working towards the goal and staying motivated throughout the journey. I am constantly asked what I do to stay motivated to push myself to work harder. What I do is keep a few things in mind.

In order to achieve the things that we desire, we must understand that sacrifices and hard work are included as part of the plan. Work as hard as you can towards your dream and when your vision becomes reality, it will feel earned not given. It makes the experience so much more rewarding.

OK, so you’ve been working at it for a while now and you don’t see the improvements you’d hoped for or feel as if you are headed nowhere. It happens! Don’t get discouraged. It will take time, especially the good things. You must stay positive and be patient. Stressing will not help you but rather bring you down and cause you to eventually lose hope. You must remind yourself of the reason you wish to reach this goal. Ask yourself constantly what it would mean to you to finally get there.

My motivation is the visualization of my accomplishment. Thinking back at all of the sacrifices made, getting through the emotional roller coaster at times but in the end proving to myself that I was even stronger than I believed to be. Every single one of you has it in you to do whatever it is you want to do. It’s all about having the heart, understanding that obstacles will get in the way but that you WILL overcome them. During a journey to accomplish a single goal, you will gain so much more in the end than just that accomplishment. You will be amazed at the strength you will find within yourself and what other amazing qualities will shine through. We are women, which means we are strong and can do anything we want. LOL!

If you recently fell off the wagon, hop right back on, think success, I can do this, and get it done.

Until next week!
