It left me with something to share about this amazingly awesome turtle. Do you realize the turtle is almost never afraid to stick its neck out to go the last mile. No matter how slow that little creature is, he just keeps right on trucking to get where he is going. You know what? He gets there! He may not get there as quickly as Jeff Gordan in his Nascar vehicle, but he gets there! That to me is truly inspiring.
There was a time a few months back where I was so frightened over change and creating new goals for myself that I often felt frozen in fear. Stuck and froze like a possum playing dead! Yep, that was me! The possum-much to scared to try to make a move. It wasn't until going through some personal soul-searching that I took the time to learn about myself and what it was I truly wanted in my life. This is when I became a turtle. This is when I learned to have more respect for a turtle than probably any other creature out there. I want to share why!
Once I began soul-searching, I learned that I had to stick my neck out and keep going forward no matter what if I truly wanted what it was that I was looking and searching for. Once I stuck my neck out, that was it! I had no interest what so ever in stopping. I just wanted to keep trudging one foot in front of the other to get where it was I was going. I was this turtle sticking its neck out and heading to my next destination; one goal at a time.
What I am sharing with you today is that we in no way should be discouraged when we don't reach the goals we are pushing for at the deadline we desire. It happens! Reevaluate the deadline dates and recreate your plan. There is no need to stop working toward what it is you want so badly. If you want it bad enough, you will do what you have to do to get there, right? Just like the turtle; sooner or later no matter how long he keeps slowwwwwwly moving forward, he will find water and take that refreshing swim he has been longing for! Why? Because he just kept putting one foot in front of the other. Because he kept his goal in sight, right in front of him. He wanted it bad enough that he didn't let anything stop him.
Don't get discouraged this month. Enjoy the journey! Keep moving forward. Set those goals, make those plans. Strive for the things that are so important to you and like I so often say at Dedicated 2 Life, "Make Life Happen!'
Have a fantastic week everyone and please, like I always say, do keep in touch. Share a comment to share your personal thoughts and growth for myself and others. We love to grow together! What are you going to be doing over the next couple weeks to get it done, even if it means doing it slowwwly like the amazingly awesome turtle?
