QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Wednesday, July 3, 2019

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

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
ammunition.


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 -
                                                   FOCUS...FOCUS....FOCUS...
                                                       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
                                                      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~                         
 

"Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate
and make sure you know exactly what it is you want.  No one can hit their
target with their eyes closed."                                                        ~Paulo Coelho


"Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem.  We all have twenty-four
hour days."                                                                                 ~Zig Ziglar


"Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not
burn until brought to a focus."                                      ~Alexander Graham Bell

"The biggest challenge is to stay focused.  It's to have the discipline when
there are so many competing things."                                     ~Alexa Hirschfeld

"The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus."
                                                                                                          ~Bruce Lee

"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
harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there you're never
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."
                                                                                                          ~Tony Robbins

"Focus 90% of your time on solutions and only 10% of your time on
problems."                                                                          ~Anthony J. D'Angelo

"Stay focused on the mission."                                                  ~Naveen Jain

Hello Jane - the Zig Ziglar quote is a good one. For lots of different reasons and for many changes/evolutions in life.

The plateaus can be ruthless when it comes to weight loss challenges.  It's really easy to want to give up.

Morning Jane.

The main thing I saw over and over again was the one word I use every day.  I FOCUS, on whtever goal I have set for myself.  Rarely do I lose that FOCUS.

Thank you very much, Jane, for your kind words on my blog.

We attended a community breakfast day before the annual parade. Trump may face a thunderstorm during his political rally in DC this evening.

Your first challenge was certainly not a failure and I am proud of you for embarking on another challenge since your goals were not reached.  I am sure you will reach them this time!

Jane all the best on your Challenge, with that said loved two quotes one was  very close to the other:


"Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem.  We all have twenty-four
hour days."                                                                                 ~Zig Ziglar
