Pressing Towards Your Goals

December 13, 2009 6 comments

With Christmas right around the corner, and New Year’s close behind. The tradition of setting New Year’s goals starts to come to people’s minds. Some people have achieved their goals. Some people set new one’s. Some people are wondering where they “fell off” from their goals previously set.

People don’t realize that setting goals takes preparation. Preparation of your mind and the stresses to come. Preparation of the spirit when your will & faith get tested against the challenges, and if your heart can believe that it’s a goal that you truly want or need. Preparation of the body and the new levels of fatigue that it will bring when taking on the responsibility of achieving a goal, (how many people know that you’re responsible for the goals that you set?)

When you set a goal, do it with love in your heart. You are going to receive numerous distractions, and personal discouragements, that will try to prevent you from achieving what you are working towards. But when you set a goal with love in your heart, it becomes a passion. Passions are what motivate us & keep us happy, regardless of our trials & tribulations on our path. When you have the capability to have a goal bring joy & happiness, or inspiration & motivation, then you know that you’re on the right path.

I say, set a goal with love because *Love is patient and kind, love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not celebrate about injustice, but celebrates whenever the truth wins. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

With that said, as you embark on your journey achieving your goal(s) **focus on this one thing; Forget the past, and look forward to what lies ahead. Press on to reach the end of the race and receive the prize!

When Life Gets Tough…

December 6, 2009 3 comments

During the holidays it’s common to see people writing about what they’re thankful for and why they’re excited about the holidays, reminiscing of holiday memories.

The same way that these people cause themselves to feel feelings of joy, by thinking of positive experiences of the past, is the same way that people cause themselves to feel feelings of sadness, stress, or hurt, by thinking of negative experiences of the past.

NOTE! I am in no way disregarding of anyone’s experiences, positive or negative. You may have had an experience of your past that is truly traumatizing, that I may never be able to understand, and for this to have happened to you, I am truly sorry.

What today’s blog is about, is choices, and how we can improve our chances of making the best choice for us. All of us are born of different paths and opportunities, but all of us are given the opportunity to make the best choice of what is given in our life.

To give an example, I’ll share with you why I love martial arts so much. Martial arts focuses on the discipline of beliefs, not just self-defense. If you discipline yourself to follow a certain set of beliefs, you will get far in life (be careful, it works for negative beliefs too, i.e. any dictator). I decided to strive to discipline myself on making the choice to try to live by the golden rule; “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

For those of you that strive to live by this rule, people that also follow it, will notice you. For those that do not follow it, they too will notice you, (Don’t worry about the one’s that don’t follow it, even if they are of blood). For those people that you meet, who do follow it, surround yourself with them. Make good, strong lasting relationships, with these people, for when life gets tough, you will have these kind of people to rely on.

Now ask yourself. Do you lie to people constantly?  Do you cheat people out of what they deserve?  Do you think that you surround yourself with people that will remain honest and would not cheat you? That, when life gets tough, you will be surrounded with people like you? Wanna surround yourself with good people? Strive to live a good life, with good morals, and I promise that you will see people with lacking morals a mile away (with “banners and flags” on them to warn you). To live a life of good morals and beliefs is the road less traveled.

When life gets tough, what choices do you make to survive?

Here’s an answer from one of the greatest motivational speakers and entrepreneurs of our time; “and I kept the faith. See that’s the deal. Keep the faith with your family. Fight like crazy, and keep faith. Fight the enemy and keep faith. Fight illness and keep faith!” –Jim Rohn RIP 12-5-09
