Jan. 20, 2016 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

You’ve got to create a dream.
You’ve got to uphold the dream.
If you can’t, go back to the factory
or go back to the desk.
 — Eric Burdon

We develop goals, priorities, and action steps. We feel energized and ready to move full speed ahead. But midway, as our momentum picks up, new thoughts enter our mind. Do I really want this? What if it creates new problems for me? If I reach this goal, I’ll have nothing to look forward to.

Being wishy-washy gets us nowhere. These thoughts are the ego’s way of looking for obstacles. We acknowledge the doubts and then quickly cast them aside and move forward with complete conviction, like a warrior. If the goal still feels right, we keep moving ahead. We know in our hearts that doing what we believe in keeps us on the right path.

Today I will believe in my goals.

  1. Have a good Thursday! So close to the weekend. I hope you reach your goals. You seem to be on the right path. I find myself making small goals to reach my bigger goals. It is easier when you reach those hurdles than never meeting any of your goals.
