TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

Julie: Good luck on the car. We didn't get as much as what was predicted, either, but no complaints!

The snow skipped us. We were supposed to get 4-6" and we got barely a dusting!

Went new car "looking" yesterday. I think I found what I want, just need to go test drive and finish paperwork.

Monday: Got exercise moving snow. But could have been a lot worse, that’s for sure.

Lilly goes to the vet for her recheck and then we’re meeting John and his family for lunch. He is off work and it’s Karleigh’s birthday.

Hugs and here’s to a wonderful Monday. Go Packers!

Thank you, my friend.

I'm hoping what I blog is being read by a few others other than the 3-4 of us.

Those goals were obtained yes and are definitely a huge feeling of freedom going into this year. And now this year, I am working on getting rid of the remaining debt we have.

Fantastic blog! Definitely success is different things to different people, but it always is accompanied by a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction @ a goal achieved. Those feelings come from within.

Glad that you were able to pay those debts and get yourselves in good financial shape!

Success, The Most Desired End Result

Without the attributes of focus, determination and diligence of hard work, reaching the desired end result of any goal is impossible.



What is success? How is it defined? Mostly, it is defined as an achievement of your goals or even having small occasions where you feel to have achieved something. Whatever it is, it surely brings a smile to your face, happiness and satisfaction. But hey, even a robber feels it a success in committing a successful robbery.

Success’ is a very powerful word. Many of us run behind it; most of us want to conquer it. So, what is a success all about? Does this mean acquiring money, power or fame?

We know and would all agree that success is much more than riches, power or fame. Success is more about the feeling of satisfaction and exhilaration one gets from reaching for the bar set and carrying it out with focus, determination and diligence of hard work and reaching the desired end result. We also know that success means different things to different people.



None the less, too all, one of the most important in the recipe for success is determination and it might as well be said that this is the most important secret to becoming successful because it is the necessary key to never give up until the pursuit of happiness and satisfaction is fully met. But the level of happiness and satisfaction can also be found in very different things for different people.

It is also very important for every individual to define their own conviction of success rather than following someone else’s footsteps. You must be self-aware of what makes you happy, what gives you contentment, and what motivates you. No one can list your needs better than you.

True success means understanding your dreams and working with that great passion you possess because that is where your heart and soul exists for those dreams in making them come true.

Many great people have suggested various ways to achieve success. But the real secret in nailing success is to believe that you are already successful. With this strong affirmative thought, success is so much more easily achieved.



Yes, the path to success is always challenging. But with confidence to face any challenging situation we are the ultimate overcomer.
The third and most important is discipline. When we work with disciplined behaviour, things will automatically fall in place.

If we stick to these influences, nothing can stop us. And, not forgetting, that success is a journey that continues even after the goal is achieved.

My wins for the old year were to pay off 3 outstanding accounts, the Subaru Forrester, the denturist for Walt's dentures, both upper and lower 5,500 smacks! They bled us dry with interest! Plus one credit card! That is a lot of wins! Sitting pretty nice financially right now!

OK, so, 2019 has come to an end, and we are all focused on 2020. You probably have some new goals in mind (which you should if you don't already).

A new year is like a clean slate. It is your chance to do the right things and make the positive changes you need in your life.

But, before you get too focused on the future, let's take a look at the past year.

You may already be putting it behind yourself and are laser-focused on what you will do next. That is not a bad thing, but I believe it is important to reflect on what you did in 2019.

I am talking about your wins.

I challenge you right now to write down every win you had! I don't care how small it may be

The Road Less Travelled
Wednesday, January 01, 2020

The coming of a new year represents an opportunity to begin again. It is a time to step off of the dead-end paths we've been on and to create a fork in the road, to completely disassociate from the old and put our lives in better order with fresh possibilities. In harnessing the power of transformative energy is a matter of truly believing that with new resolve we can in fact vanquish those past reoccurring, repetitive patterns. (If you continue with the same you'll continually achieve the same results.) Time to break away. Out with the old, in with the new.
In believing that we are capable of changing our lives, we are more inclined to believe that we are capable of leaving past missteps and blunders behind.

Our dedication, which might otherwise falter, is then buoyed and becomes anchored by higher expectations. Thus, the beginning of the new year is traditionally popular in dealing with difficult endeavours. The two most sought-after being to quit smoking, losing weight; fulfilling those goals that fell by the wayside. Not only is the transition from last year to the next the possibility of change but also the opportunity to pursue emotional, spiritual, and intellectual growth because we no longer feel burdened by past regret and disappointment.

Whatever your reality, it is within your power to create the fork that allows you to walk a more conscious, grounded path. So, view the start of the coming year as a time of rebirth and allow yourself to focus on what you want to accomplish in the next 365 days. Because you have a clean slate in front of you, you are free to immerse yourself in new experiences with impunity.
If you feel a need to reconnect with your spirituality, consider taking up yoga, meditation, or another discipline that challenges both your mental and physical selves. Fill your newly-cleansed mind with stimulating knowledge, poignant wisdom. Clearing your home or workspace of clutter will also improve the flow of energy in your life, giving you the momentum you need to stay true to your new resolve. And beginning a fresh start may include a fresh journal. A wonderful way to celebrate.

Robert Frost, I think said it best.

The Road Not Taken

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves, no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
