“I will never take a step backward – sideways, diagonally, up, down, but never back.”
~A Toyota insert in the June 2005 issue of the Oprah Magazine
I was flipping through old magazines while looking for some positive sayings for a goal poster. I came across an insert in an old issue of “O” magazine that I want to share with you. The campaign was done by Toyota under the slogan “Moving forward.” In it were three small cards detailing ideas for moving forward and then on the back was space for writing down how you would move forward. One of the cards included the quote above.
The other two are: “I will contemplate my own limitations and then exceed them.” “I will become my own role model.” How empowering each of these statements can be if we don’t just read them–but live them.
Choose one of these quotes
as theme for “moving forward” in 2011. Print out this good morning
and highlight the quote you have chosen. Then on the back side of the paper, write down what you will do to move forward.
I move forward in life. I am unstoppable.
