Staying Firmly on the Path to Success
I’ll admit it. I’m a wanderer, and that’s just fine, especially if we’re off visiting some foreign land. You see a lot of interesting things when wandering that you wouldn’t see otherwise.
There are merits to the slow and aimless path.
But there are times when I don’t want to wander about — especially when it comes to my financial goals.
I want to GET there, using the best and most direct route possible.
Usually I start out just fine. I know where I’m going, what I need to do to get there, etc. But as my husband pointed out, things seem to go in cycles for me. I’ll feel like I can conquer the world one minute and like I’m never going to get anywhere the next.
It’s frustrating. But I have a new magic phrase:
“The rise and fall of my emotional tide will not deter me from my course.”
(from The Traveler’s Gift)
It doesn’t matter how how I feel. Yes, some days I’ll feel badly, and others I’ll feel great.
But I don’t have to let the bad days affect what I do. I just have to keep going anyway.
