Take Pride

    Sometimes it’s difficult to face the fact that most goals cannot be accomplished over night; & with those that can be, it’s important to ask yourself if you’re accomplishing it just because you can or because it truly means something to you.

    It’s always been a question sitting in the back of my head, “Does this goal REALLY mean something to me? Or am I just doing it simply because I can? Or possibly even for someone else?” With that question comes the constant evolving of my goal list — & that’s ok! It’s good actually. Why waste your time accomplishing goals for the wrong reasons? 

    Even then, after some of us have asked ourselves this question & moved forward with a goal, we sometimes find ourselves rushing. 

    Now’s the time to stop yourself & truly think about this goal. If it’s so meaningful to you, you’ll take the time to do it right – the way you’ve always wanted it. Because, in the end, when it’s all said & done, if you haven’t accomplished that goal the way you wanted to, accomplishing it was almost for nothing except being able to say you did it. That’s the wrong reason. 

    Take time & pride in everything that you do. From writing a novel to burying a time capsule, all of your goals take thinking & sometimes a ton of work. 

    Are you willing to go the distance?
