Welcome to week 7. This week is about PROGRESS.
Did you know that one step forward, no matter how small your feet, no matter how short your stride, even if you crawl, is still a forward motion. Only those who quit and stop moving will not reach their destination or goal.
At times we feel that we’re not making any progress whatsoever, but it’s not until we monitor or self reflect that we notice how far we’ve actually come. If you ever feel like you’re not making any progress, look back at where you started. It’s a good idea, every once in a while to write down all our accomplishments for the previous year. It’s not until we sit down and truly think about what we have done, do we notice our accomplishments. Make sure you celebrate every accomplishment, even if it’s little.
I often feel like I’m continually moving but not really getting anywhere. Does this sound like you? It’s not until I write down my accomplishments, do I realise that there have been so many. Things that I have forgotten about or overlooked. Things that were little but have aided my journey none the less.
When you first start moving towards your goal, you may not leap off the starting blocks and you may not be the fastest, but that doesn’t matter! What does matter is that you’re taking an important step to improve and that’s a huge accomplishment. Take pride in the fact that you’re taking your life in your own hands, no matter what it is you’re trying to accomplish, no matter how small, no matter what pace you are going.
This week I challenge you to sit down and write a list of all the things you have accomplished in the last 12 months. Really think. Write them all down, not matter how small. I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised at all the things you have achieved. This may be the boost that you need.
If you have any suggestions on how you would like to see this challenge develop, please don’t hesitate to let me know either by commenting on this post or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.
