What are the qualities that make overcoming obstacles and achieving possible? You have to have perseverance, to be able to doggedly stick to your goals no matter what people say and no matter what falls in front of you on the path. You have to stay focused and when you discover that you’ve wandered off your trail, be willing to drag yourself back on, one step at a time.
Once you figure out what has to be done, then plan it out and do it. Don’t let pressure from others sway you and be sure to reward yourself along the way. It also helps to divest yourself of any crusty attitudes- fixating on things that you have no control over. Getting rid of all those “what-ifs” thoughts that trample around in your head.
Of course it helps, if you have a good pot of hot coffee to ease your way down the narrow road- I think it helps with the focus too. Just like that bird up in shed rafters-she kept an eye on our as we moved the old sheets of aluminum out of the way, but she remained on those eggs with dogged determination.
