We live in a world that is all about achieving instant or quick results with minimal effort. Because of this microwave society, most people will be likely to quit on their long-term goals before they ever reach them. This is exactly why setting short-term, daily goals is important. Setting short term goals helps you to stay on track and to keep moving forward, setting new goals, and growing your level of patience for larger, more long-term goals.
You only get one life to live. You can spend your life complaining about the things you didn’t do. You can spend it blaming other people for holding you back. You can spend it in a state of depression, because you’re obsessing over your regrets. OR you can start where you are and make the best of the rest of your life.
I wanted to be the smartest in class, the prettiest girl in the room, the best dressed, etc. Whenever I noticed that someone else was further along than myself, I would clinch my fists and wonder why my life wasn’t different.

I know that many people, myself included, have said time and time again that nothing is impossible, but this actually is the exception to the rule. Read more
Like everybody else in the world who is trying to do something better with their life, I jumped on the vision board bandwagon. I was all in as a member of Oprah’s LifeClass, and I was so ready to start manifesting everything that I wanted. The problem…I wasn’t ready (in my Kevin Hart voice).
