Staying focused on your 2014 Goals!
By Marybeth McKinnon Lang
Well here we are into a new year and another chance to start or restart a project that you have been wanting to complete. We are all aware that the "getting it going" part is filled with fresh ideas, new ways to promote yourself or new materials to complete a project that you have been wanting to complete. It feels great to have surges of ideas and ways to bring forth your creativeness. The dream of getting that song or book written, the vision of completing the project you have been working on is huge business. So how are you going to keep that surge of creativeness going? How are you going to keep yourselves from getting into a slump where your dream or project gets put on the back burner? This can happen it happens to many people. It does not have to happen to you! You can do this, yes you can! Write this down and keep on writing it until it becomes one with you. Be specific about what you want to achieve and never ever stop telling yourself that, for this is the way to keep yourself motivated. Surround yourself with like minded people who are cheerleaders for you. Limit time with those who are draining to your dreams of success.Don't set yourself up for disappointment once again with people who constantly have been members of the drain gang. If you cannot limit time with the drain gang avoid sharing your dreams with them and keep your conversations short and general.
In my blog on Reiki and self esteem I mention ways to have high self esteem so feel free to refresh by reading that blog also. Be fearless in your pursuit of your dream. If you fall short of being fearless shake yourself off and try again. It's fine. Take chances in pursuit of your dream. Remember to not put others on a pedestal only God deserves to be there. That way you will not worry about what others think of your pursuits which of course should be for the highest and best. There are many critics out there. Unless you are receiving constructive advice for attainment of your goal, dismiss the critics. They may be trying to sabotage your dream because they sabotage their own. People with high self esteem will not try to sabotage your dream or theirs. Be kind to yourself, work on daily high self esteem then you will be able to love yourself enough to be loving to others also.
Happy New Year my friends!
