What Time Is It?

It's not about whether you can or can't in the future ... it's about what you commit to doing right now!

Don't worry about the end game, focus on the strategies needed to get you there. The final piece to your puzzle will be dictated by the many smaller pieces put together along the way. It's natural to be concerned about whether or not you're good enough, worth it, or even deserve it, but the true secret to success is mastering this second. The future details will align themselves, based on your passion, discipline, and commitment to achieving this goal, right now.

You need the "carrot," but you don't need to know how it's going to taste until it's in your hands. The long term motivation is definitely necessary to help you stay on path, but the short term goal-setting is what allows you to keep moving forward on a steady pace.

Many fall short of reaching their long term goals because they get caught up in thinking about how "long" really could be. Others want it to be easy, unwilling to feel the inevitable pain of struggle or part time failure. Those who grab that carrot are the ones who understand it's this pain, sometimes often and consistent, that leads them to the prize. They've learned to keep it simple.

"Don't explain how the watch works ... just tell me the time" 

When you look at your watch, train yourself to focus on the seconds ticking by. It's those seconds that will determine your future!

Become the 1%.

I've taken a break from my blog, just to do some thinking and evaluating, and this was part of it. I appreciate this... and the last post about heart.

Thanks for these... they've given me something more to think about.

Thanks for all of your comments, Loretta!!

I hope you find that passion again to put into your blog... I know you touched many, many people. "Long" can definitely be long, which is why I preach 1% mindset.

It's not easy, is it?
