Embarrassing but true. I've never been able to reach my toes!😂 so today I just tried it, and I did it! Today started off terrible. I made mistakes and time wasn't on my side but the little things really do mean a lot. Time to get my rest and have my head clear for tomorrow! 5/80 completed. .
Winter marches on. I have been pondering what new goals to reach for in 2018. I surprised myself by reaching several goals that I had written down in 2017. The biggest goal I have in mind this year is to create a darkroom & start making traditional prints from digital negatives. That’s a big one to achieve! Another goal is to consistently work on submissions to Arcangel & make that first book cover sale! Another goal is to work on a cohesive portfolio for gallery submissions. Lots to think about & work towards! What are you hoping you’ll achieve this year? .
YOU are the CEO, Mastermind, ultimate BOSS of your life! So, challenge yourself this year to Craft a Master Plan that feels exciting, maybe a bit playful, certainly achievable with a healthy dose of curiosity thrown in.
But, even the greatest plans can falter, our goals can shift, our vision can change! Defining Progress & Productivity by our own terms is vital to our agenda!
Progress & Productivity can help us steer the way even when our plans falter
or are altered.
My VISION for the year to come, my idea of #Progress or Productivity will differ greatly than yours. So keep in mind that you don't have to (nor Should you) hold yourself to anyone's standards but your own. The beginning of the year is a great time to create BIG plans, BIG Vision, set BIG intentions...make a FEARLESS leap into something new.
So are you more scared to fail?
Or are you more scared to succeed?
Before you answer that really stop and think about it.
For the longest time in my life I've thought that I was scared to fail but looking back on the things I've done, places I've traveled etc...I was always been up to try something new, still am.
And clearly looking back at my pictures I posted yesterday it would be easy to say I "failed" wouldn't it?
But failure to me means -- quitting not willing to keep going. You only fail once you give up & quit.
Even though last year was hard, I sucked at a lot of things, there's one thing that I was consistent at, the fact I didn't quit.
The reality is that I'm scared to succeed. It's true that change is scary, it's scary for all of us. Were scared of what comes next, ok I've succeed "now what". We always have this thought in our heads that someone is going to pull the rug out from under us, or its too good to be true.
It also means maybe we realize a few things, that our life, our job, our relationships are really not healhty like we once though they were and that scares us.
Sometimes we keep ourselves stuck so that we don't rock the boat and make other people uncomfortable, don't we?
But how unhappy must most of us be if we are unwilling to make ourselves happy. We will go out of our way to make others happy only to be felt taken advantage of in the end, but yet don't value ourselves enough to make ourselves happy first.
So if your sitting there scared of the "what happens next" all I can say to you is that you'll never have the chance to know the answer unless you take the first step first.
