Achieving personal success feels so damn good! Doesn’t it? Do you remember the last time you really knocked your own socks off with a feat of your personal best? The pride that fills your heart; the praise you get from others; the sudden feeling that you have made your mark on the world all melt into your experience like the best hot fudge you’ve ever tasted.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, well, it’s time you did! Today, I am so grateful to understand what it takes to succeed. Notice, I did say “understand what it takes” not that I always succeed. This lady has as many (if not more) unsuccessful journeys as I do ones that end well. That’s OK though; it’s all a part of learning and growing into your skin. Read on for some expert tips for personal success. Be well-be beautiful.
“Don’t worry if you take a wrong turn. The road to success is almost never a straight line. There may be twists and turns, or detours, or you may wander off onto a different road entirely. That’s absolutely okay – humans are not meant to be perfect. Accept your experiences as part of the journey, give yourself a little pep talk, and get back on the road again.” “Also, Check yourself at the halfway point. Don’t wait until the end of the year to assess how you’re doing – make at least one checkpoint along the way to take stock of your progress. It feels great to see how far you’ve come, and that can help renew your excitement about the remainder of the journey ahead of you. As long as you keep going, you will get there eventually!” Maryanne Comaroto (Relationship Expert)
“Use past experiences to help you recognize patterns of good and bad. For example: If you know that eating at a particular restaurant always causes you to overeat, don’t go there. Additionally, if you find yourself getting stressed by your goal(s), consider that they are too lofty for now. It’s important to many women to have markable results early on in their efforts to change. Having frequent “me parties” is a way to celebrate your success and a sure-fire way to release the self-doubt brought on by past failures.” Kellie R. Stone (Journey Coach)
“The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.” Oprah Winfrey (You all know who she is)
