6 Clear Ways We Fail at Progress (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 272)


“Progress. Just make progress. It’s okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It’s okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again — and again. Just make sure you’re moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps… Then change will come. And it will be good.”
— Lysa TerKeurst

It is easy for us to allow delusions and untruths to take root and grow in the personal gardens of our lives. When left unchecked, a garden doesn’t grow as it should. It becomes wild, weeds outrun the garden’s potential, and ultimately the garden dies. Likewise, in life, when we allow lies to go unchallenged, they control our expectations and the action or lack thereof that we take on our potential. Take your time if you must, but don’t allow discouragement and negativity to knock you off the path of progress. Every step may not be as fruitful as you would like, but when you get to your destination, you will look back and find that very good step outweighed every bad one. Some people quit because progress is slow, never once stopping to consider that slow progress is still progress. Read more…

6 Other Ways We Fail at Progress (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 271)


“And a step backward, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction.”
— Kurt Vonnegut

Progress means to always be getting closer to the place you want to be. You may take a wrong turn, make mistakes, and base your assumptions off of misunderstandings. It is at this point that you stop to reconsider the path you are on. Sometimes, progress means not moving for a while in order to gain clarity of perspective and vision. But then you must make a move in some direction — preferably, the right one. The person who is not just moving but moving rightly is the one making true progress. Read more…

6 More Ways We Fail at Progress (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 270)


“Progress always involves risks. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.”
— Frederick Wilcox

Always be willing to continue the climb. Always be willing to row to the other side despite the storm. Always be ready to take risks and anticipate the outcome. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose in life. However, if you get to know who you are and what you are capable of accomplishing, you will be more likely to set goals, overcome insecurities, and trust a power that is greater than you to help you get to where you want to go.

6 Ways We Fail at Progress (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 269)


“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
— Buckminster Fuller

Everyone moves; very few make progress. Progress is not achieved by happenstance or osmosis or luck. It takes intentional, willful, purposeful work on your own mind and heart and soul every single day. Most people give up because the journey to achieving the progress they want looks so far away. All progress, however, is based on a deeply innate and universal desire to be and live beyond our comfort zones. If we channel it so, every mistake and every success is progress. Read more…

3 Small Signs You’re Moving Forward (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 118)

3 Small Signs You’re Moving Forward

“When you focus on problems, you will have more problems. When you focus on possibilities you’ll have more opportunities.”
— Unknown

A sure way to stop progress is to give power to negative energy. When we fill our space with right goals and positive thoughts, everything that is wrong and negative has to move. If the negative is allowed to run rampant, the positive will eventually slip away from us. Learn to play the game of elimination. If something or someone doesn’t add to your life, open the door for it to leave. If it doesn’t leave on its own, kick it out. Break the habit of giving voice to problems and choose to talk about the possibilities. There are so many on the road of progress. Read more…

3 Further Signs You’re Moving Forward

“Running away from any problem only increases the distance from the solution. The easiest way to escape from the problem is to solve it.”
— Rishika Jain

The unpredictability of life can cause us to constantly be thinking and analyzing, over-thinking and over-analyzing about what directions we should take in life. Engaging in these kinds of activities, if they can even be called that, will keep us in the same place we’ve always been. It is not a comfort to stay stuck. As you grow, you learn that you have more control of the direction of your life than you realize. You don’t have to stay stuck if you don’t want to. Being paralyzed by mere thinking is enough to get you up and moving on your journey to where you were meant to go in life. When you refuse to be stuck, you are beginning to move forward. Read more…

“Waiting for perfect is never as smart as making progress.”
— Seth Godin

A lot of times, we don’t make progress because we don’t feel the circumstances are perfect enough. Perfect circumstances, timing, people, or perfect anything should be the least of worries when we are trying to move forward. Everything, it seems, will be far from perfect. It may even feel like a struggle. It may feel slow and irritating. But you need to realize that struggle always precedes progress. And slow progress is a million dollars better than no progress at all.

Here are three more signs you’re moving forward in life even if you don’t feel it:  Read more…
