Better Than I thought

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The other day I learned something awesome and I want to share it with you.

I spent the day taking it easy, perhaps more easy then would be best. In the morning I checked out a ton of car dealerships, just for fun. I love cars, so I thought I’d check them out.



Admittedly I struggle to always see the value of what I have.
Yet my eyes were opened. I checked out cars I thought would be awesome, and I discovered that my current car is better then all the cars I looked at for various reasons.

One of the best features of my car is the fact that it has space for everything. Everyone has the leg room they need no matter what. And there is plenty of room for storage. My car goes fast enough, looks good enough, and is just as comfortable as all the cars I sat in.

Could my car be better, sure, but it doesn’t really need to be.

I learned that sometimes you don’t see how well you have it until you see the other options and how everything compares. This isn’t unusual, this is a common mental struggle. What matters is that we face ourselves and gain a clear vision of where we are, so we can be truly grateful for where we are and how far we have come etc.

Sometimes we need to step back, and look back and see how good we have it.

I enjoyed the great life lesson, that could help me glean a broader prospective and greater gratitude. (That being said I will never stop dreaming…)

Keep Thinking…

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Never stop searching for your solution. If you are convinced there is a better way then don’t give up your search. Sure it’ll take time, effort, and concentrated thought, but it’ll be worth it.

If you give up you’ll never know what would have happened. If you stop taking the time and effort to work toward your ideal solution then you’ll never know how good it could have been. Sure is perfectionism is dangerous, but I’m not saying do what’s perfect. I’m saying do what is necessary, do what it takes. Don’t settle for mediocre if you know and feel that better truly is possible.


I’m working on writing a book. I have been working to determine how to form a particular chapter for some time now. As of today I have begun to discover some more progress, with new ideas, and new thoughts that help me to move forward. Will it be perfect, beats me…But for now it seems like I’m headed in the right direction, and that is a big deal.

The thinker kept between your ears is powerful, never turn it off, and never give up on it. Keep pushing your mind to see what you need it to see and believe it can see, then in time you might just find the solutions you’re after.


It is so import to ponder to think and to wonder. Not just once, but continually. On and off. Repeatedly. Always be thinking. Never stop.

So whatever you are facing, pace yourself, and think things out.

To Find Progress Accept the Pain of Change

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Sometimes we have to face the facts. We have to realize that we don’t have everything figured out. We need to see the room there is within us for improvement.

We can’t expect to be comfortable with what we are doing, and how we are doing it simply because it’s enough for now. We need to seek progress through pain.


You and I naturally want to avoid persecution.
We don’t like being told we are wrong, we hate it when we are made to feel stupid or unproductive. No matter how these thoughts are shaped. Everyone really wants to be different, yet they don’t want to go through the pain of progression. They want to overcome the norm, yet they are not yet prepared to sacrifice the norm for the exceptional.


I’m not perfect. I want to be really clear here. I don’t ever profess to have it all figured out. Some of my biggest struggles come as I hit a mental wall as I realize to reach my goals, and reach for my potential I need to face the pain of weakness, comfort, and personal growth. It is hard to stay motivated sometimes. (I love writing about motivation, but that doesn’t mean I think I’m perfect.) I have come to realize though, that to keep moving forward I need to face the fact that to progress I need to become malleable, flexible, modifiable, and in many ways realistic.



We need to see where we want to go, and understand that we have to take the hits before we can discover the strength to win the battle.

You and I are not about the immediate, short term win. As much as it is appealing we want and know we need to be in it for the long haul.

We have to do things that help us reach our infinite potential, rather than help us meet our most basic needs.


Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that this isn’t going to be easy. We have to be willing to do the work, even when it’s not easy. Even when it’s hard. You can do it you can make it, but first you’ll have to break it. You’ll have to break who you are and how you feel for who you can become and how you could feel.


We are all in this together.
Always know that when you feel weak, you are then able aware of an opportunity to face yourself and become better. The pain that comes through the quest of progress is healthy,… like the pain of building muscle.


Everything can workout so long as you persist through the pain, and push yourself to to become more, and find the life you have always dreamed of.


Always remember that the struggle is part of the journey toward progress.

Write Your Plan

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Write down what you plan to do and you’ll find that it’s far easier to take action and get it down. There is one way you can focus your energy toward your goals and dreams.

You’re far more likely to accomplish what you’re after when you write about it. This may take a few minutes but it’s worth it.

If you are struggling to get things done, then you might want to try writing down what you plan to do in advance. This helps you to focus your energy on what you want. This also helps to keep you accountable, and aware of how you are doing. It helps you to measure your movement, progress, and actions.

When you write down your goals and dreams you define them. You determine what they are. You can get specific and really hone in on them in finite detail. Then you can clearly track your progress, so you can evaluate how you are doing, and the actions you’re taking. This helps you act. It’s always easier to take action when you have a clear plan. Writing it down will therefore help you to know when you got there.

How are you to prove to yourself and others that you have achieved your goals if you never wrote them down? (I would always include the date on each page you write on. This helps you to reflect where you were at and how far you have come when you look back.)

So today’s message is to write about your goals, dreams,
vision, purpose, plan etc!!!

Take things one paw at a time, but try and write about where you’re gonna place your paw ahead of time. This makes things so much easier. Of course things won’t be easy, you’ll still struggle, but it will be easier.

Determination That Endures

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Remain Determined!

Things are never going to be perfect.
You need to just stick with it. Don’t give up. Have a vision of where you would like to go, and keep chasing that vision.

Push yourself to become who you want to be. Be prepared for the long haul, and know that although the results you seek won’t be instant they will come with time and commitment.

Get excited when you look to the future. Believe that things will all work out, stay positive. You will have to fight nearly every minute to stick with it. But it’ll be worth it.

No one wants to live with regrets so instead of wondering what would happen if you took action or worrying about imperfect action. Just take action, and do what you can to work toward your goals, and shape who you are into who you truly want to be.


You deserve to be pleased with who you are. So if there are things you want to change, start working on them. The sooner you do, the sooner you’ll be able to feel mental and emotional relief.

You’ll never be truly happy if you’re not happy with who you are and how you live your life. So work on it. Be truly true to yourself.

Remember you can do it! Just take things one paw at a time, and let your grizzly like determination move you to take grizzly sized action.
