In 2017 I was gliding through life. Doing the usual activities.
Getting up and getting ready for work.
Getting the children up for school
Preparing the sandwiches, and make them for hubby too.
Drop the children to school.
Go to work.
I think you get the picture.
I wasn’t working hard on my goals. I wasn’t pursing them. When I did work on them, I would make very tiny steps. By the end of the year, surprise, surprise, I did not make much progress.
But, Jan the 1st 2018, I made a decision to GET UP and GO after my dreams. I am glad I had decided to make that choice.
Since I made that decision, I have made so much progress towards my goals. It is only Feb 14th, and their have been so many doors of opportunity. I am so surprised that things are moving at a rapid pace.
When I decided to take that initial first step, I noticed so many people wanting to support me with my goals. Wow, I feel so blessed. This is a very exciting time, 2018 is the year when you will see those dream come true. Remember you have to make steps towards your goals/ dreams. It will NOT just happen.
I will share with you how I made progress this year.
It all started with me making a decision that I am going to pursue my goals.
I have always been told that I should write a book. I thought about it, then that thought went very quickly. Then on the 1st Jan 2018, I decided that I will go for it. I have not stopped writing since the start of the year.
Guess what? on the 9th Feb, I completed my book. It is an inspirational true story. My life, my journey. I write about how I overcome rejection, low self-esteem, and many other challenges. I had to go on a journey of healing, and through that process I found my true worth.
I wrote my book whilst working full time, in a very demanding job. I’m a lecturer. Mother of two, My daughter is 15 and leaving school this year. My son is 11 and going to high school in September. I also work for a voluntary organisation during the week. I have been stretched to capacity, but I was on a mission, a mission to make it happen. No one was going to do it for me.
My book is being proof read as we speak by several people.
A designer is doing the art work for the front cover.
Someone else is designing a website for me.
AND I am booking the venue today, I am having a Pre Book Launch. How exciting!!
Things starting moving when I decided to take action.
Word for today.
ACT– Take Action and do something!
