Life Challenges

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Life challenges often feel heavy and unbearable.

Keep focused on the journey.

To focus on the outcome makes the wait more difficult and can discourage you to

the point where you give up.

There are always new discoveries along the challenge path. These discoveries prepare you for each new step.

Stick with each new discovery one moment at a time.

Your feet may want you to hurry along. Tell them–not so fast. Make your feet wait for your mind to process the learning taking place in the here and now.

If at First You Don’t Succeed

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

If at first you don’t succeed

If at second you don’t succeed

If at third you don’t succeed

If at fourth you don’t succeed

If at fifth you don’t succeed

Reevaluate your strategy

You are likely very close but just missing one or

two key elements that will help you move forward.

At the brink of failure things often turn around

You will never know if you quit.

Quitting puts a period where there might have been an exclamation


Life is full of periods.

We have to fight for our exclamation points.

Don’t give up!

Finding Your Way Late In Life

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

The best thing about finding your way late in life is that you stayed the course and did find your way.

You didn’t quit–though there were times you thought about it.

You grew into the great person you are.

If you’re thinking it was luck–you’re not giving yourself the acknowledgement you deserve.

The only luck we get is that which we create.

It was no accident that you succeeded.

Feeling Discouraged & Second Guessing

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

You’ve decided on a goal, something you want to do or be. You’re excited and have done your due diligence and are confident enough to move forward. Then something happens, you become discouraged and start to second guess yourself.

It could be something small like a look or gesture from someone else. It could be a little bigger like another person telling you your idea won’t work or that there are too many others who have tried and failed. It could be something bigger like a test failure or failure to get a job interview.

It could be something much bigger like a financial setback or denial of a loan or rejected by a school program or employer.

It could be anything.

Just because you have a setback doesn’t mean your original plan was fraught with errors and it definitely doesn’t mean you should give up. It just means that following the path you’ve chosen is challenging and hard work.

Now is where it gets interesting. It’s time to buckle down and problem solve. There are ways to solve the problem that is currently standing in your way. Think of at least five ways to solve it. Map it out. Talk it out. Get the opinion of someone you trust who won’t discourage you.

Don’t give up!

Anyone Can Give Up

Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.
