On the Path to Achievable Goals

[1]This is it, that time of the year when we all decide to make changes [2] … but how many of those changes are lasting? It’s so easy to have good intentions [3], but it’s the implementation of these intentions that separate the “start and stop” game that a lot of us love to play from actual lasting change.

One of my college professors once told me that many of us are living in a false reality. We all have an “I” and a “ME.” One represents reality and the other expectations. When your I and ME are running perpendicular (away from one another) so are your reality and your expectations, and you are setting yourself up for disappointment. But when your I and the ME are running parallel this is when you are on the right path and real changes can be made in your life [4].

This is something that has stuck with me through the years and I have tried to live by it. Being a dreamer myself [5], I tend to get wrapped up in the final product, but the only way to get there is to focus on the now [6], my reality, what is right in front of me. This year, try to keep your I and ME running parallel. Just make the right choice in this moment and know that it’s the little steps that lead you to your ideal final product.

I know that you will make 2011 your best year ever. This is YOUR time!

Be well.
