Welcome to The Blogging A-Z Challenge April 2012! Some of the most popular posts here at The Shellshank Redemption are the Motivational Mondays. So, after consulting the tortoises, we decided to make April our Motivational Month! Please join us for this (almost!) daily dose of alphabetical inspiration. We hope you enjoy it!
* OBSTACLES ARE THE THINGS WE SEE WHEN WE TAKE OUR EYES OFF OUR GOALS. (Zig Ziglar) *
This is so easy, too easy, to do. We get distracted, discouraged. Circumstances change and become difficult, people disapprove or show disinterest in something so vital to who we are and who we hope to be. Hearts break. Spirits crumble.
Maybe everyone is right and we can’t do it and we’re silly to even try and there are more important things to think about and…. STOP!
Maybe we really don’t have the ability and the guts and the time and the finances and… STOP!
Put on blinders. Put on noise-canceling headphones. Draw a map for the journey, pack enough focus and optimism and encouragement for a very long trip. Then…GO!
