It’s been a week! Many people who made goals on the first of January have become distracted from them by life or other, more important things. That’s okay! We can choose, right now, to recommit, and not make excuses. Keep going! Keep reading these goodinthehead Daily Perspective Checks every day and incorporating what you want from them into your life. Work hard on your own personal, consistent, daily routine. Try every single day to be the best possible version of yourself you can be! You’ve got this. It is NEVER too late, and we can decide at ANY moment to course correct or to begin again. Every day we wake up is an opportunity to recommit, realign, and conquer the day!
Each day is a battle to be won in the war of life.
The view from the top is ALWAYS more glorious and beautiful, but the trip along the way is an experience we won’t want to miss. Stop, periodically, look around, and take it all in. Appreciate the beauty of the journey, then KEEP GOING.
Some of the best advice I have gotten in my life was from my youngest son, when he was 15. One day, I was temporarily feeling discouraged, dis-empowered, defeated, and weak. He looked at me and said the words,
JUST KEEP GOING.
KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
Consistency creates a conversion and a convergence of circumstances that will serve and save us. It will look like synchronicity, serendipity, and will seem like the stars have aligned, but is actually just the Universe aligning with our consistent level of commitment, dependability, reliability, and predictability. We get what we earn.
This life is like a race. For most of us it isn’t a sprint. It’s a marathon. The longer we live the more we realize that life could end in the blink of an eye and we never know which moment may be our last. We can choose to live every day and treat every moment like it could be our last. Each day is a gift. I think it is important to remember to treat it as such.
Today I will review my goals, recommit to the necessary actions it will take to achieve them, re-double my efforts, and resolve to do what it will take to create the results I want. I will work hard to accomplish what I want to, every day. I will do my best, remain consistent, and ensure my desired actions become habits.
Earl Nightingale created a recording YEARS ago, in 1956, that has empowered MILLIONS to create and manifest the life of their dreams. I listen to this recording on YouTube, OFTEN, as a part of an intentionally designed morning routine. It’s called, THE STRANGEST SECRET. It is a great reminder, and an EXCELLENT tool to motivate, inspire, and empower people to pivot, readjust, and KEEP GOING.
