Nurturing your 90-day challenge:

2 May

Many times, the reason we never see our dreams come to life is because we don’t nurture them; either because we don’t know how, or don’t have the motivation to see it through. With anything that is expected to grow, it has to be nourished. TLC is the only way to get you moving forward with your challenge.

Many times we doubt that we can really do something because of our situation or economic/social class limits. I too, have been guilty of keeping myself at a standstill because I felt I didn’t have the means or connections to jump-start my goals, dreams, etc.  It’s a constant struggle each day, but I live by “What God has for me is for me.” If you’re unsure of how to get started on your personal/professional challenge, do your research. Don’t allow your lack of knowledge or access keep you from getting started. Research, research, research! The only way to gain knowledge is to research and learn as much as you can. Ask others who’ve accomplished what you’re working on how they did it. If you don’t have access to the internet at home, go to your local library, or ask the local community college if they allow guest passes to their computer labs. Don’t allow your lack of technology hold you back.

Secondly, don’t do it alone! Give someone close to you (who believes in you) an idea of what you’re trying to accomplish. They can be your motivation warrior! You need a motivator to keep you going, especially when you want to give up. Road blocks and gatekeepers will undoubtedly get in the way, but stay strong! You’re motivation warrior is there to pick you up when it gets rough. No matter what your challenge is: losing weight, combating illness, being a better person, building a business small or large, working on your craft (music, writing, film) advancing in your current career, whatever the challenge; work until you win.

Share your stories here. If you’re at a standstill, and need motivation we can all get their together. I’m on day 2 of my challenge, and I’ve already had loss of direction and the wondered “what am I doing…will anyone care if I do this…will I be successful?” moments.

Don’t let those thoughts cloud your vision.

How is your 90- day challenge going? Have you begun, what’s keeping you at a standstill? Think about it or share it here. I embrace and encourage comments, and hope we can help each other.
