Moving Ahead

Someone sent me this at work and I thought to share it with you. It can be applied to every thing in your life. If you are feeling as if you can’t do something that is important to you, this will pick you up and move your forward……


I am a slow walker, but I never walk backwards. - Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President

Slow and steady has not always been an inspiring concept. It's not as sexy as speed and sharp turns of direction. But it may be just the thing to keep you from running out of gas, while still moving you forward. Abe is telling us that the most important thing is to keep walking forward, no matter how slowly. Sometimes slowness can be frustrating. You might become impatient; you might get discouraged with a setback. But a setback doesn't have to set you back. Simply using it as a learning opportunity can leapfrog you ahead again. From now on, try paying attention more to your direction and less to your speed. Be patient, focus on a little bit at a time, and soon enough, you'll be further than you ever thought. Besides, it's a good bet that by always looking forward, Abe rarely looked back in regret.

Quote of the Day:
"There are only two ways to live your life - one is as though nothing is a miracle - the other is as if everything is a miracle. "
