Make 2017 the year you just keep walking. Too often our goals are lofty, unrealistic and outside of range. If you truly want to be successful in the upcoming year, add a dash of simplicity to your goal setting recipe. Sometimes it requires only putting one foot in front of the other. Make 2017 the year you just keep walking.
Life will pass you by if you let it, so as you walk, pick up your head and observe what is going on around you. Don’t be just a witness to life, but instead, be a participant. As you go your way, continue walking past the critics and the naysayers. Don’t let their words or actions deter you from walking. Nor should you let their words slow you down. Make 2017 the year you just keep walking.
Conversely, look for the cheerleaders and balcony people in your life. Embrace their encouragement and their positive energy, allowing it to be a springboard for your actions. There will be detours along the way, bumps in the road and failures on your way to success. Make 2017 the year you just keep walking.
Do not compare your middle to someone else’s end. Self doubt will creep into your plans, negative self talk can wreak havoc with your positivity. Do not let it. You will not feel you are moving as quickly as you should be moving, but don’t let that have an impact on your plans. Make 2017 the year you just keep walking.
Your ego may get in the way, telling you that you are better than the goals you have set for yourself. Remain humble yet realistic as you quicken your pace at those moments. Somedays you will be able to walk faster than others. Many days you will feel like you are unable to put one foot in front of the other, but in either case, keep telling yourself to make 2017 the year you just keep walking.
The elements are right for success. You are in the right place and the timing is now. It does not matter what is going on in your life and if you are going through especially chaotic times, keep going, do not let it stop you from moving forward. If you feel as though there is too big a gap between where you are now and success, you must believe you can cross the gorge; success is much closer than you think. No matter what, make 2017 the year you just keep walking.
I have been blessed with an incredible community of supporters, encouragers and amazing people in my life. You are a valuable part of my Nice Guy Community and I feel lucky to have you travel with me on my journey into 2017. But this is not my journey alone, this is yours as well. I encourage you to reach out to me if ever you feel as though the journey is too difficult for you. Make 2017 the year you just keep walking.
