Advance – next attitude is the choice to end each day knowing you have somewhat grown! One of the things I’m challenged at, besides sports is languages. I just can’t seem to get the words into my head and keep them there. So I find myself constantly attempting to speak a 2nd language and giving up 🙁 . One day while complimenting my beautiful Brazilian friend who speaks 4 languages, she suggested I stop focusing on trying to learn the language as a whole and simply learn one word a day. Additionally, she encouraged me to use that word as often as I could.
This reminds me of a technique I use in my business life. After setting my BIG GOALS, I break them into SMALL STEPS and as I master these, I find myself achieving the BIG GOALS I’ve set (I will talk about Goals very soon 🙂 ). So many get snowed under with the enormity of the goals, forgetting that’s doing the little tasks will eventually help to realise the goal.
As a popular Chinese proverb says ‘a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step!’ Fixating on the journey rather than taking the 1st step might jeopardise our entire process. Choose to go to bed everyday with one step taken towards your goal… – That is ADVANCEMENT! And this is the quality that guarantees constant growth and significance.
