3 Actual Signs You’re Moving Forward (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 128)
“Always strive to be better than who you were yesterday.”
— James Gordon
A sure way to get held up from moving forward is to have no clear view of the end goal. If your vision is fuzzy, unmeasurable, and unspecific, it will be unattainable. If you have a mediocre view of what you intend to do, the results you hope to gain will be mediocre as well. To move forward, you must be clear on what you want, clarify how you will get there, and execute, execute, execute each step of the way. Find your why, determine what you want the results to be, and get motivated to move forward.
Here are three more signs you’re moving forward in life even if you don’t feel it:
1. When you strive to be better. If you are trying, you are already one step ahead of the majority of the people in the world. You’ve realized that we aren’t promised anything in this life. If you are striving to be better than you were yesterday than the world is your oyster. As long as you keep at it and don’t give up, you can have anything you want for as long as you want. You’ve decided to make improvements where you can, to never stop striving, and to be all you can be.
2. When you embrace knowledge. Knowledge is power as they say. In this technology-driven society, you can learn anything and everything you want to learn if you put your mind to is. You know this and so you have chosen to seize the power that knowledge brings and use it to help you achieve your dreams. You take advantage of opportunities to grow and see everything you learn has a pathway to something you never knew was possible.
3. When you see a reason in every situation. We’re not promised an easy life. A bed of roses and a garden of tulips are mere illusions compared to reality. You would agree that the cracks in the road may rip your tires but the ride is worth the effort. Every obstacle has led you to the place you are in now and made you the person you are today. Every ounce of trouble has molded you and caused you to become better. You know that experience is an education in itself and you’ve decided to move forward in optimism and hope.
