Keep Moving

When it gets tough, I'm sometimes tempted to stop. Forget about it. Quit. Move on to something that's not as hard. Do you ever feel that way?

Sometimes it seems like the goal is too big. The resources are too small. The time is too short. But what good does it do to stop?

I won't know how far I can get if I stop moving.

Do you know what the biggest wall in front of me is? Me.

How about you? What's your biggest wall? Who's putting the brakes on your biggest goal?

If it's you, let's both agree to cut that out. Let's keep moving.

Do You Have Enough Goals?

Well, do you? Many people are overwhelmed with too many goals. It keeps them from achieving anything important because they're always doing small things.

But for some people there are too few goals. Too few goals that motivate them. Too few goals that energize them. Too few goals that promise to make a real and significant difference in the world.

It's possible to have too many goals but most people have too few.

Do you have goals that move your forward, that drive you, that spur you on, that help you grow?
