Am I still progressing toward my goal? Nine times out of ten, we never stop to ask ourselves this question. As our day to day activities go on, we go on. We proceed to do task after task, but we never really stop to assess if what we are doing is taking us to where we want to be. And in doing this, we miss a very important point that life has to teach us.
Most of us have experienced some sort of setback in life that caused us to reevaluate our approach. And in evaluating your approach did you ever notice life’s response to your setback? Probably not. Chances are that you were so consumed with what was happening to you, that you didn’t focus on anything else but yourself. But anytime we suffer in life, we can learn a valuable lesson from life. What is that lesson you ask? It’s persistence.
Does the phrase “Life goes on” mean anything to you? It should… because truer words have never been spoken. Think about it. Life never gives up. It always progresses towards its mark. No matter what happens, it marches on with every tick of the clock, with every beat of the heart, with every breath, with every morning, every night…it just keeps moving. What if we ourselves had that persistence that only life can teach us? What if we said to ourselves, no matter what I do, no matter what comes my way, I’m going to reach my goal? You have to admit that it’s a pretty powerful statement. And if you follow this blog, you know that statements lead to mindsets, and mindsets lead to action, and action leads to goal attainment.
As we live on this earth, each of us have a calling. Each of us have something that we need to achieve in life that gives our life value and meaning. We cannot attain this personal value if we give up on ourselves; if we give up on our goals. So, as life keeps moving, we have to keep moving. One step at a time. The winds of adversity may blow against you, but deep down you are stronger than any circumstance. Keep moving, keep driving, keep pressing….just like life.
Inspired Vision’s Point of Power: The major premise of goal attainment is to show up for your life…every day.
