Can you believe that the month is nearly over and so is the year? Are there things on your “to do” list that still have yet to be done? Maybe you’re in panic mode, because you realize that you are behind schedule on some tasks and the clock is ticking?
Let me encourage you that you can hit the reset button at any time in your life. If things didn’t go as planned in the first half of the month or even the year, it’s not too late to hit that reset button.
Don’t get caught up in the “woulda, shoulda, coulda’s.” Get inspired by the “will do, shall do and can do.” Hit your reset button and get to work on your dreams and your goals. We have all sat at the pity party table and cried in our tea about opportunities that past us by or the second chances that someone else got and you didn’t.
Enough of petty-pity-party favors. Don’t worry about what you lost or didn’t get. Don’t concern yourself with what other people say or think about your dreams. Just get on task and remain focused on your goals.
Some of your friends and family won’t understand your journey and that’s okay. It’s not their journey and not their path to take. It’s yours. I guarantee you, that at times, you won’t understand it either. But, if you do the work on yourself first, then plan your dreams by setting goals and staying steadfast on reaching every milestone, then the path will become clearer with each step.
When I left my chosen profession as a journalist 20 years ago, I wasn’t sure at all what I was doing, but I knew I had to take the journey. I was excited, but afraid. I had always done the predictable things. I went to school, graduated, got a job, bought a house, got married, had children and got a dog.
While I had landed a great job and loved it, after 10 years, I felt compelled to do something else. The ELSE, was the scary part. What else – could I do? The things I planned on didn’t pan out in the long run, and even when I wanted to go back to my old job to have that security, it was no longer where I wanted to be.
I hit the reset button so many times that I thought I broke it. But, I remained true to my focus of helping people.
My core desire to help others led me to the road that I’m on now and all those times of doubt, fear and hitting the reset button paid off.
Today, I help other people assess their lives, set goals, stay focused and when necessary…hit the reset button. Go ahead, hit your reset button and get on the path to fulfilling your dreams.
