Taking Steps Backwards To Move Forwards

When you have a goal, sometimes things will get worst before they get better. And these instances may happen more than once on your journey. The key thing to remember is that no matter what happens, you have to keep moving forward. 

Many people will focus on the details of what went wrong for too long. Yes, we do need to focus on what what went wrong, but then we need to focus on how to make it right, and determine what actions to take.

Plans don’t always go as planned, it happens. If we are resilient, determined, and believe in our goals, we can adapt to the unexpected circumstances that will happen. These steps backwards will not keep us back for long. We have to fight for what we believe in and if our goals mean anything to us, we’ll recover from anything and get back on track.

How To Defeat Your Worst Enemy

“You’re nothing, and not good enough to accomplish what you’re thinking of doing. Just play it safe and do what you’ve been doing. Nobody will like your new ideas or this change in behavior. Who do you think you are? Do you want people to laugh at you? Trust me, I know you, you wouldn’t like doing that” – You

Look into the mirror and look squarely into your eyes. Take a deep breath and say, “You will not defeat me”. You are your own worst enemy. There is nobody on this planet that you communicate with more than yourself. Don’t worry that doesn’t make you crazy, we all do it. But sometimes we put ourselves down and sometimes we sabotage our own chances at success. Try these few steps to keep your alter ego at bay.  Continue reading

The Past is Not Your Future

We all have events in the past that have shaped who we are now. Some memories more painful than others. Some events more memorable than others. Even though the past has shaped who we are today, we are still in control of what our future will look like tomorrow by focusing on today. So if you’ve had terrible things happen to you, don’t let that hinder you from achieving your goals. Here are a few tips to help you do just that.

Warning this will not be easy. It takes time to really move on from your past if change is what you want in your life.

  1. Let Go of all Your Mistakes.

    This takes time but there is a way to let go off all the negative memories of your past. These memories are similar to bad tenants who have been evicted but are refusing to leave. You must take your strongest men and physically remove them from your mind. Write them down on a piece of paper, as if you are pouring them out of your mind. Now tear that paper to shreds and as you dispose of it, mentally, physically, and spiritually let go of those negative thoughts. (Sounds crazy but it works for some)

  2. Focus on Making Today Productive

    Focus on tackling as many things on your to-do-list. The more you check off, the more progress you will be making towards your goals. Focusing on the here and now is setting a strong foundation for the future. The title of this blog is, Live Now or Forever Hold Your Peace, to “live now” is to focus on today. Enjoy today, be grateful for another day on this planet where you are the creator of whatever you want. Go and create something wonderful.

  3. Learn From the Past

    There are lessons to be learned from your past. You can learn from bad and good moments. Write down the lessons that you have learned from these instances. Having a list of these lessons will help you to move on from your past. When new opportunities arrive, and they will, you will already be equipped with what not to do because of this list. Prepare today for the opportunities that you hope to have in the future by learning from the past.

Try these tips for putting the past where it belongs, the past, and living in the now so that you can truly enjoy the moment and have more control of your future. You already posses everything you need to achieve the things that you want. You just need to develop what you already have.

Live Now or Forever Hold Your Peace!

I am not that lucky yet, but I do appreciate getting to this number overall. This I hope is only the beginning as I plan to continue to grow as a writer, motivator, and through networking to inspire people to set and achieve their goals.

Why is this important? It’s important because you can create your own dream, passion, or vision while you are awake. Continue reading
