SHEER WILLPOWER

When seeking motivation to achieve a goal - say a dietary goal or a weight loss goal - I place the goal within grasp. I don't create a goal for myself that is too difficult and I don't put it too far out in the future. Loosing 5 to 7 lbs is a good goal and two weeks is not too far out there, I set the goal and then pursue it doggedly. When that goal is reached I can set another. For me, short bursts of energy is the key.

Advice from "One of the Greats"

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
- Thomas A. Edison

Many different quotes I read inspire me. But this quote inspired me especially with my new way of living to achieve my weight loss goals. I have this in my signature, so every time I post a comment I re-read it. Think about it; how many times did he have to fail and try again to accomplish everything he did in his life. So, that's what I'm doing, too. emoticon

Never "give in"...

It was Winston Churchill who gave a speech back in the 40s to never give in! I just looked it up so I wouldn't misquote him...

“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”

What if Churchill had "given in" during WWII???

The Road to Success

The road to success is not straight
There is a curve called failure
A loop called confusion
Speed bumps called friends
Red lights called enemies
Caution lights called family
you'll have flats called jobs
But if you have determination
An engine called perseverance
Insurance called faith
A driver called GOD
You'll make it to a place called SUCCESS!

Listen to motivational audio books

Keep one in the CD player of your car and listen to it any time you are driving somewhere. These things are amazing!

FRIENDS!

My friends are SO encouraging. They know how much of a struggle this is for me and they help me remember to rejoice over small victories and to not give up when I do get off track. I want to reach for perfection, but they remind me that setbacks do not equal failure.
