If you're going from success to success without even pausing to reflect, today is a new day. This is your opportunity to turn things around for the positive. Don’t dwell on how far you have to go. Reflect on how far you’ve already come. When you do, you’ll find that you’ve done far more than you give yourself credit for. There really is power in small successes. Even the smallest victory has value and should be celebrated. A shift in mindset will improve your energy level. You’ll accomplish more with ease. And you’ll enjoy the journey as head to your destination.
Following dreams is like walking a tightrope. The first step is the hardest. You can’t turn back. Hope keeps you going. Faith takes you to the other side. Expect great things to happen. Walk in that belief. What once felt impossible will feel within reach. What you achieve will only go as high as what you believe. Reach for your potential.
The difference between greatness and mediocrity is quite simple. Mediocrity prompts a man to lower his standards to fit in. Greatness allows him to rise above circumstances to reach his potential.
Have you ever met someone who seems to do it all? She acts, sings, dances, plays the piano and guitar, speaks, writes and cooks. To top off her long list of talents, she’s sweet and a great mom. You name it, she does it all. Oh, how you dream of being as well rounded as Ms. Suzy Does It All. As you awake from your dream, you’re reminded that all you do is write and speak. OK, not so bad, right? In fact, you were actually quite encouraged before this encounter with Ms. Suzy Does It All.
At times life throws curveballs when we think we’re about to hit a home run. Discouragement quickly sets in. We’re tempted to step off the field, and we lose the will to try again. Everyone steps up to the plate with the hope of hitting it out of the park. Yet very few hit a home run. Some make it to third base, while even more make it to second and first. None start with a guarantee of success.
