If you've tuned in lately, you may have guessed that I'm about moving forward this year. Yes, I know, I've already touted Evernote, and OneWord365, and Choose Joy (a terrific new book to encourage and motivate). and yesterday I even signed up for a Michael Hyatt webinar on goal-setting (and reaching them).
You may be thinking I'm a little fickle by now. Well, perhaps, but more often than not I'm thinking with my teacher brain. Teacher brains look for as many ways as possible to teach a skill, make a meaningful connection. (Or maybe it's another case of my undiagnosed ADD.)
Anyway, Prince Phillip definitely had a few advantages when it came to defeating the monstrous Maleficent. Teacher brain went on high alert, while watching the Disney classic, about connecting his strategies to something useful in my life.
Hmmmm. . . I don't know about you, but my successes, big or small, have always been fueled by family, friends, and their generosity. Prayers, study partners, a hot, healthy meal when I needed it, junk food when I didn't, or most importantly, moral support. "That's what friends are for!"
- gave Phil "that" look when a choice was a little iffy;
- put up with Phil's moodiness ("Are you going to give me those apples or what?");
- stuck with Phil through thick and thin ("You want me to carry you where, to do WHAT?").
Dear Reader, whether you're launching new goals with the new year, or forging ahead with long-term goals, I hope you are confident in the gifts and abilities you already have. Which gifts or abilities are the most beneficial to you in your quest? I pray your goals soon become your new reality.
