Figure it out for yourself, my lad,
You've all that the greatest of men have had,
Two arms, two hands, two legs, two eyes,
And a brain to use if you would be wise.
With this equipment they all began,
So start for the top and say "I can."
Look them over, the wise and great,
They take their food from a common plate
And similar knives and forks they use,
With similar laces they tie their shoes,
The world considers them brave and smart.
But you've all they had when they made their start.
You can triumph and come to skill,
You can be great if only you will,
You're well equipped for what fight you choose,
You have legs and arms and a brain to use,
And the man who has risen, great deeds to do
Began his life with no more than you.
You are the handicap you must face,
You are the one who must choose your place,
You must say where you want to go.
How much you will study the truth to know,
God has equipped you for life, But He
Lets you decide what you want to be.
Courage must come from the soul within,
The man must furnish the will to win,
So figure it out for yourself, my lad,
You were born with all that the great have had,
With your equipment they all began.
Get hold of yourself, and say: "I can."
What have I always wanted to start doing or stop doing (Keep it Simple)?
Examples: Start doing-walking, hiking, running, biking, swimming, working out, spending time with friends/family, reading, saving, learning something new.
Stop doing-Sitting around, watching TV, spending time on social media, smoking, drinking, eating unhealthy, wasting money, etc.
Write down your ideas. Again, Keep It Simple. One sheet of paper, and no longer then five minutes spent on this.
Now choose up to five of your ideas. You can just decide to work on one, two, or three, but it is important not to pick more than five of them at this point.
Get a notebook card and write one of your ideas on the front.
Write on the back of the card how many days you want to continue doing this goal. Remember you can choose 1, 4, 12, 20 or 30 days. Set realistic goals. If you choose 2 days and complete it, then build on your success and and start on your new goal.
It is important to remind yourself of what your trying to complete, even if it's only for one day.
To do this:
1. Carry the notebook card with you
2. Put sticky notes in places you can see (car, computer, around the house or your workspace).
3. Add reminders to your phone
4. Have a timer on your phone go off every so often.
5. Email yourself.
6. Wear a rubber-band or silicon wristband to remind you everytime you see it.
7. Tell a friend, roommate or family member of your goals and ask them to take part or to text you a reminder at some point.
8. Post it to your social media page.
If you complete your goal, then you can start a new one or continue working on your objective. If you did not complete your goal, no worries, figure out why and start it again.
This website is intended to help others in life who have always wanted to do the most simplest things, like going for a hike, signing up for the gym, learning how to draw, or dance or anything that you would like to accomplish. Then again maybe you want to work on something bigger, like going back to school or changing your career. I would like this site to be an inspiration and motivation for everyone. Many times people have fears or feel (I’m not able to, smart enough or social enough). Sometimes we are capable of working on our goals, but just need the added inspiration. Then you can say YES to what you have always dreamed of doing or wanted to try. We are all aware of the stories of Helen Keller, Anne Frank or George Washington Carver with physical or social impairments and the great leaps and strides they made that have gone down in history. This website is however, for today and the world we live in now. This websites objective is to help people reach their goals, both big and small, while overcoming fears or personal limitations. LIVE FOR ONCE and start working on your goals now.
