Goal steps…

“It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.” Goethe

Good morning! Goethe is one of my favorite wise men to quote. Today’s quote provides insight for pursuing the lives we desire.

Most changes or goals require a lengthy path and time investment. To last for the long run, each step forward must be a goal in and of itself. Each step is an accomplishment deserving the same celebration as a reached goal.

With each step we gain self-respect, determination and confidence. When you reflect on a goal, instead of looking at the steps yet to be taken, celebrate your accomplishments to date. If you have yet to take a step forward, then take a step today. Change begins whenever you choose to let it.

Your Turn:
If you have made progress in your goal, take time today to celebrate and recognize your accomplishment, journal about your progress. Reward yourself with a new book, long bath, new CD, or an enjoyable coffee at a local café. If you have yet to take a step, why not take one today? Then reward yourself for beginning the journey.

Today’s Affirmation:
Every positive step I take feeds my confidence and determination. My motto: I can and I do.
