It’s Never Too Late!
As we approach the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016, it’s a good time to reflect on our experiences throughout the year. Did we achieve the goals we set at the beginning of the year? Were there some challenges and setbacks that kept us from fulfilling our goals and objectives? Whatever your experiences, you’ll see it’s never too late to make your dreams come true!
The other day I was swimming at the Rex Wellness Center where I exercise. As I was finishing my workout, I decided to go into the warm therapy pool to stretch. I noticed a woman who was obviously learning how to swim. As I looked on, the person helping her said to me, “She’s 87 and learning how to swim.”
I was thoroughly impressed watching this woman work diligently on her freestyle stroke as she swam the length of the pool. I was pretty much speechless, but in my mind all I could think was, “WOW, that’s amazing! I want to be trying new things like that when I’m 87!”
If she can learn to swim at that age, then it’s never too late for you to work on something you’ve been wanting to do but may have put off for one reason or another. It’s easy to find any excuse to hold off on your dreams. There’s not enough time or money. There are too many other responsibilities on your plate. The reality is that there will always be something more important if you don’t make your goal a priority in your life. You have to schedule it to make sure that you work on it. And you have to work on it every day to make it a habit in your life…one that will move you forward and help you achieve success. That’s how you make your goal a reality!
As you look towards the New Year and what you’d like to accomplish, think about that 87-year-old woman determined to learn how to swim. You, too, can achieve your goals and feel the excitement that it brings.
If you’ve been struggling trying to achieve your goals and objectives, then you watch for information on a program we’re offering in the new year called, “Ready, Set, Goal! How to Focus and Follow Through to Achieve Success! This is exactly what you need to ensure you keep on track with your goal and achieve results. Details will be coming soon!
Have a wonderful holiday season.
