Monday Motivational Saying
Know what you are going to do and then do it and don’t backslide.
One morning walking on the beach I was fascinated how a tree branch thrown up by the tide was so beautifully positioned on the beach. For me, it was a fabulous image for a fork in the road. I knew then that one day I would find a saying or the words that would be just perfect to go with the picture. The simplicity of the fork, was balanced by the intricacy of the barnacles on the wood, reflecting life’s many complexities.
After meditating this morning I was reading some sayings from Begin it Now, A Book of Motivation, by Susan Haywood, and the saying above, at the beginning of the post, jumped out at me.
I reflected that this has been where I have been on the past month, at a fork in the road,still not 100% clear about how I was going to move closer to my main goal of Financial Freedom.
I had started the year out with many goals and a very complex mind map to match, it is like the barnacles on the branch, interesting, but not taking me forward. Also the mind map wasn’t matching what I had written about simplifying my life.
I then got out the worksheets from Zen to Done, remembering Leo had suggested
focussing on one goal, rather than the 7 areas I had started with back in December.
Those goals weren’t lighting up my life!
The lights finally came on on Saturday morning . I woke with an idea that I was excited about. I finally could see a way forward.
The main awakening for me was that I has been still looking for the magic bullet and had been disappointed in severals forays into what looked like genuine programs for abundance. I had been looking outside myself ………..
My resident Beach Coach, Des help me simplify what I was proposing and I am excited about moving forward, starting a new blog- all will be revealed in a week or so.
I also mentioned someone new I had read about on simplifying your life and Des asked" I thought you were following…… yes I need to limit the number of mentors I am following.
There are so many great people it is so easy to get off track.
If you have found yourself at a fork in the road please share you experience below.
Thank you for reading and wishing you a memorable Motivational Monday
