Would I be right to say that each and everyone has a burning desire to succeed, achieve a number of goals, become better wives, mothers, local and global citizens etc.
You want to create wealth, have radiantly good health and happiness and in doing so, be in the position to give back to the community by the truckload.
We may have arrived at this point directly or perhaps via a more circuitous path.
Whichever the case, we are now here.
Some days your goals and grand visions are so clear you can taste, touch, smell and feel it. It makes your heart beat just a bit faster, and the sense of anticipation and excitements makes you want to jump up and down with glee.
Other times, it feels like a bit of a pipe dream and the naysayers (including the harsh internal critic) have a field day picking apart your precious dreams.
Question: So how do you keep going in the face of adversity and whilst you are paused to take a breath when you are in one of those “pushing the proverbial uphill” days?
Answer: See subject heading. I have included an inspirational missive from Brain Tracy. It certainly keeps me going when obstacles (which are really opportunities in disguise) pop up. Enjoy and be re-inspired.
“The most important Million Dollar Habit you can develop is the habit of deliberately building your own self-esteem and self-confidence on a daily basis.
The more you feed your mind with positive words, pictures, and thoughts, the more positive, confident, optimistic and unafraid you become.
The more you like yourself, the better you do at anything you attempt.
The more you like yourself, the less you fear failure and rejection.
The more you like yourself, the less you worry about short-term setbacks and obstacles.
The more you like yourself, the greater courage and resilience you will have to face the inevitable ups and downs of life.
And the more you like yourself, the more it is that you will persist until you succeed.
Self-esteem is everything”. Brian Tracy
