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

6-clear-ways-we-fail-at-progress

“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…

“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 Extra Signs You’re Doing Just Fine (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 139)

3 Extra Signs You’re Doing Just Fine

“Look at everything as though you were seeing it for the first or the last time, then your time on earth will be filled with glory.”
— Betty Smith

We all have a place of balance within us. This is the place where we realize anything is possible. We feel we are at our best in every respect. We all also have a tendency to stray from that place of harmony and peace. External forces can cause us to focus on things that may be popular, but not beneficial to us. When this happens, we must consciously take time to de-stress and allow that place of balance and peace to fall back into our lives. Read more…

3 Practical Signs You’re Moving Forward (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 131)

3 Practical Signs You’re Moving Forward

“Life is the sum of all your choices.”
— Albert Camus

Not knowing where one is going will result in mediocre results. An unclear idea of what you are intending to do will impede your ability to move forward. Clarity where you are now makes executing every step, no matter how small or large it is, much easier to accomplish. Moving forward requires motivation and a firm idea of where you are going and why you are going there will keep you making progress.  Read more…
