“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Greetings Family & Friends,
Hope everyone had an amazing Throwback Thursday. I don’t have a lot pictures of the pasts or simple figuring out how to scan them… lol. Today is another bust with the meal planning. Had an occasion at work so it would be rude to refuse offered food. Ate lunch with my bestman so we needed to catch up on our progress and news. Trevor, wanted McDonalds after school so I ended up getting a grilled chicken McWrap. Went back up to 179.2 lbs after that adventure. Though I needed to step up today with my workouts, I still don’t regret creating memories and bonding with my son. Eating alone is much worse than eating with family & friends.
That is the past now and I can just focus on this moment. I won’t worry too much on the future. I just need to realize that I am getting closer to my goals and dreams when I focus on what I need to do right now towards them. Have to keep reminding yourself on your purpose and whys to draw strength from within. Life will always try to keep you locked into your current reality but it isn’t your permanent reality. We are only sojourners in this life and are moving towards something better for us. We just need to strive hard to develop ourselves to ascend to a higher level of ourselves. Like mentioned from yesterday’s post, we need to take a proactive approach to plan, implement & review our direction in life on a daily basis. Each day that is given to us we should plan the day before we even head out the front door of our home. Trying our best to stay on course with that plan and then review to make the necessary improvements to be stronger and better than yesterday. Our growth is very important.
Do your very best to achieve your goals. Try something new if you reach a plateau in your development. Trying to force your belief and finding no results is foolish. Prove yourself wrong on the negatives and embrace those that provide you growth. We try to live in denial without experiencing it. And we experiencing something and fail we should have a 2nd opinion from someone that is ahead of us. Someone that is doing what we want to do in the future and not those that agrees with your failure. It isn’t always true unless we let it. Taking advice from someone with theory instead of someone with experience & has overcome that experience can vastly slow your progress. Investing in yourself is automatic to achieve success and developing a new version of you to retain that success. It isn’t winning the lottery, it’s about winning that lottery and doubling it more through your constant development. You are so worth it so don’t let challenges get you down. Fight another day and the rest is history!
