“Mind and arrow must become one”
Regrettably, this is a concept I continually have to remind myself and be aware of. FOCUS. I’m learning to tunnel my vision and dilute my wandering mind. Soooo much easier said than done though, especially for me. I have this get everything done at once type of attitude and it can quickly accumulate to stress. It’s such a work in progress to keep my eyes on the prize and focus on the task at hand rather than thinking ahead and asking my favorite question “What’s next?!” Another thing to keep in mind is to not succumb to discouragement. A huge thing for me. Wouldn’t it be nice for things to manifest within the timeframe it takes to snap your thumb and middle finger ?! What a perfect world. Unfortunately…things take time. Rome most certainly was not built in a day. I’m a firm believer that hard work creates an admiration and appreciation that could never possibly exist with out it. And you know what? I’ll be honest. Sometimes motivation fades. Sometimes your inspiration does too. That’s when discipline comes in. Be honest with yourself and evaluate your growth and acknowledge whatever effort you’ve invested and be proud of that. Never get too comfortable. There will always be room for growth and improvement, and it just takes one step at a time. So, don’t beat yourself up if you’re not where you want to be, and don’t make it seem like you never will be either. Knock one project out at a time and soon you’ll be asking yourself “what next?!”
Dream big folks.
