Ponderings Along the Pathway...DEDICATION

Welcome to this month's edition of Ponderings Along the Pathway, an exclusive feature over here on the Path of Positivity.  The purpose of this column is to continue with the goal of this blog which is to create a space "designed to inspire, nurture and provide support for the soul by creating a positive path to follow, one project or post at a time".  Providing some motivational introspection on the themes we cover each challenge period, is one way of achieving this goal.

This month it is all about DEDICATION and PAT is here to share her thoughts on the subject...

This month’s theme is all about dedication. Dedication is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out, in order to reach your goals. Success is easy to achieve when those small efforts don’t take too much time, but you know what they say, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” For all intents and purposes, the tough have something that no one else does—Dedication.

Of course, there are many traps and pitfalls toward your goals, especially in your own mind. Try these techniques when your heart wants something but your brain is an inner critic:
  • When your mind says I’m no good at this, answer back What do I need to get better?
  • When your mind says this is too hard, answer back It’s totally worth it.
  • When your mind says you made a mistake, answer back Now I know how not to do it.
  • When your brain says it's good enough, you answer back Is this really the best I can do?
Are your goals worth your dedication? Is a healthier body, weight loss, graduation, a new job, your own art exhibit or etsy store, are your goals worth your time, your talent, your sweat, your pain, your busy days and sleepless nights? If they are, if you dedicate your whole being to them, there is absolutely no stopping you from achieving greatness.

And maybe our paths will cross on our way to success. You can’t miss me. I’ll be the one with a gleam in my eyes and dedication in my heart.

Please be sure to pop over to Pat's personal blog, Patacake Pages, for more inspiration.

Well folks, that is it for today but please be sure to join us on Monday for the midway.

May you always have the level of dedication that you need to fulfil all your dreams and desires!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!
