“Start With You” – every day we wake up let those three words be a reminder to us, that we are the main obstacles standing in our own way. Of course, there are things outside of us that can hinder our progress but there are often bigger things going on inside of us that keeps pushing us ten steps backwards and they will continue until we address them.
The good news is, we’ve documented our proposed goals and aspirations and safely secured them for quick review from time to time.
However, making the list believe it or not was the easy part. The changes we want and need in our lives ultimately start with us. I’ve learnt over the years that many times when we fall short sometimes it is often due to some type of action or inaction on our part.
The words we’ve written will remain only words until we take action to change and improve the aspects of our lives that have been holding us back. We have to give meaning and significance to what we say we want and be willing to do the work to see it achieved.
I’ve been standing in my own way for many years and it was only when I addressed certain aspects of my thinking, attitude and the words I spoke over my life did I experience the breakthrough I was praying for.
The saying, “what you put in is what you get out” is very true. We have to align our attitudes, words, thoughts and actions with the pictures we have envisioned for ourselves.
So check yourself each day and ask yourself, “Am I thinking, saying and doing what is needed for me to get the results I claim to want?” If your answer, is “No or Not really” don’t get discouraged take immediate steps to align those areas that may be holding you back.
For 2018 to be everything we need and more, we need to accept responsibility for ourselves and more importantly be accountable. Our successes and failures ultimately – start with us!
In closing, I want to declare that 2018 is going to be a year of prosperity, growth, healing and transformation in our lives. It’s time for us to step up and actively pursue those goals and dreams that we have allowed to elude us for so long.
My question to you is, how bad do you want it?
As always, thank you for making this blog one of your stops in this journey called life. 🙂
