Hi Everyone! Today I am on Day 3 of my challenge to take off a few pounds.
Those of you who might have seen my last challenge to lose 20 pounds which
I made with one of my sons, we called the "Tortoise and the Hare Challenge"
and we both terminated it when we got discouraged with the plateaus we
kept hitting. Truth is we both did lose over 10 lbs. And now we try again.
There are a number of quotes that tell one to pick oneself up on a fall or
failure and that is what we are doing. But this time we are adding extra
From exploring deeper into 'challenges and winning,' also that I am grateful
for all your comments and support which helped me to further define my
challenge, I have added the following:
Have a clear Goal -
Improve mental focus - This I read is 'key' -
Maintain a high level of concentration
throughout the challenge -
Be at attention and guard against distractions -
to maintain and sustain effort and energy -
And of course, Belief in Oneself...Stay Determined and Disciplined...
Anyway...chose some quotes for the day for those working on challenges of
the day or on a particular goal. I wish you the best! Jane

and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their
target with their eyes closed." ~Paulo Coelho

hour days." ~Zig Ziglar

burn until brought to a focus." ~Alexander Graham Bell

there are so many competing things." ~Alexa Hirschfeld
"The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus."
"Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going
on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their
failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to
the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life
presents to them." ~Jack Canfield
"I don't care how much power, brilliance or energy you have. If you don't

going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants." ~Zig Ziglar
"That's been one of my mantras -- focus and simplicity. Simple can be
harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to
make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there,
you can move mountains." ~Steve Jobs
"Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command
when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives."

problems." ~Anthony J. D'Angelo
