Life: Marathons Unseen…

Life’s uncertainties at times leave us baffled–often as if in a maze with no way out. The Unseen provides periods of confusion, apprehension, and fear.

A Marathon is a long-lasting or difficult task or operation of a specified kind

Life’s uncertainties at times leave us baffled–often as if in a maze with no way out. The Unseen provides periods of confusion, apprehension, and fear. It seems we are running a Marathon–a race that never seems to end.

But it’s at those times that our strength and character is built. If we hold on and never give up, we discover things about ourselves we never knew existed. With renewed zeal we embrace our inner desires to go on. To achieve even more goals, dreams and aspirations far beyond measure.

Today if you feel exhausted, take a break. Talk to someone. Find a Coach. But whatever you do, don’t ever give up. The light will break through at the end of the tunnel.

Keep the faith. Keep going.

Cheers!

To Move Ahead I value your help.

At the start of 2016 I decided to take the plunge into a Blog Renewal. I started my blog back in 2011 with only a few posts a year. My goal sparked, I decided to enroll in wordpress university. Now looking back it’s one of the best decisions I made. I became fully conversant with managing my blog and sharing my thoughts on success, goals, personal development, writing, and more. Even though there is a ton more to learn, I am pleased with my achievement this year.

To you my readers I say THANKS! Thank you for following me. Thank you for participating through your valuable insights. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

As we step into a new year and a fresh chapter in our lives my desire remains to inspire because I have been inspired.  Will you help me in sharing your preference on topics I should write about? What would you like to hear more of? I truly value your input and insights.

Cheers!

Visions Martyred…

Look closely. What do you see? Look again.

Dreams

That inner feeling that quietly tugs at your heart. Look closely. Listen quietly. You will hear. Les Brown promoted the saying that the grave is filled with dreams that were never realized.

For years my mom wanted to write her story. She wrote on notepads, pieces of paper, then typewriter, then started reaching for the computer. A journey that lasted decades throughout her life. A journey that was never to be fulfilled. My sister too-like a Martyr stricken by the ravishes of cancer, dreamed of telling her story but like my mom, she too passed away with it in her heart quietly waiting. She accomplished much yet still had that silent dream that was never fulfilled.

Today I write to inspire you, you, and you to go after your dreams, goals and aspirations. Make them real before it’s too late. Don’t wait until the new year…start today. Look back. Reflect. Connect the dots. Create that driving vision. Then Act. It does not have to be perfect. Just start the journey today before it all Vanish.

Cheers!

So What Does Success Look Like?

Don’t Stop Believin…10 Songs That Inspire…

Inspiration ….being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.

You want it? You’ve got it! What a feeling! To dream, to believe, to strive, to achieve! Exhilating…. oh yes it is!

How often we aspire to achieve but find there is an Agile disconnect between getting from where we are and where we want to be. Our Sated goals for self-actualization appear Undulated and far-fetched. We feel stalled, lethargic, demotivated, stretched like Elastic. We can’t seem to defy the odds. We beat up ourselves because of our liminal progress.

That’s where positive self-talk comes into play. To get moving. To feel inspired to be creative. To do something different. We can do this through travel, exploration, positive thinking, afilliation with progressive people, through reading, music, and more.

Songs stimulate our desire to achieve. Here are 10 to get you going.

10 Songs That Stimulate Achievement

  1. Eye of the Tiger – Survivor
  2. Aint no mountain high enough – Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
  3. Don’t stop believin – Journey
  4. Stronger (What doesn’t kill makes you stronger) – Kelly Clarkson
  5. What a feeling – Irene Cara
  6. Imagine – John Lennon
  7. Stand by Me – Ben E. King
  8. Don’t Worry about a Thing – Bob Marley
  9. Heal the World – Michael Jackson
  10. You Raise Me Up – Josh Groben
