Terrific article. I need to refer to this one often when I'm in the midst of some challenging steps. Thank you for writing the article.
This article hit me a bit personally. I am in the process of starting a business. Any business today requires an online presence. I can't afford professionals so I will have to do this myself. I am going to follow your lead and plunge in with my heart , my brain, and my support network and get this thing handled.
Great article. Thank you.
Really liked this one! Saved it so I can read it again when I'm getting frustrated or in a slump. Thanks!
Very inspiring. Thank you.
Action steps trip me up. I'm so busy worrying about the ENTIRE thing, as I work through each goal, I don't enjoy the process. I just want to get to the end, or I worry I'll miss something along the way...
Interesting analogy. I will use this and refer to the qualities often I´m sure. And at this moment to helping the young teen of a friend of mine.
All I can say is I love it.congrats to you
Wow. Two and half years ago I completed a rigorous program to become a volunteer Firefighter. I was so very proud of myself and so determined. I was the only female out of ten that began to finish. Somewhere along those two and half years I have lost that feeling of pride and have becomd doubtful that I can continue forward with anything. Thank you for the article, it brought me back to reality and as I sit here looking at all of my other certificates proving to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to, I think I have a chance this time.
I'm just reading this article for the first time and it is wonderfully encouraging and enlightening - I made a copy and have already begun to refer to it. Thank you so much Mike.
This is a great article. All the tools to make a great "blueprint" for reaching any goal! Thanks for the inspiration and motivation!
I got so much out of this article! It really helped me rethink how I have been making my goals. Not just my weight loss goals but all of them. Thanks!!
This was really a great article! It made me think about my failures to reach goals in the not-so-distant past. I didn't plan daily what I would do. I was afraid I would be called obsessed...blah blah... but you're right, it is necessary. Thank you for this article!
Where are the pictures?! Would love to see the finished product!
I found this to be very interesting. Using the same principles of reaching life goals to something more tangible. I found it helpful.
