I am always moving forward. It may be at the pace of a freakin’ snail sometimes, but it is forward, dammit!

Action Plan:

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Ugh! Sometimes it can seem like it takes forever to get to where we want to be – in business, relationships, personal growth, just in life! But often in the quest to just “get there already!” we forget to celebrate how far we’ve come from where we started.

Today, write down at least one way you have moved forward in the last year (it can be more than one, if you want). Write the details of how you did it – as detailed as you can be. This can be a small thing or a big thing. In fact, I don’t think we celebrate the small things enough, and I hasten to say that they can be just as, or even more, valuable than the big ones. Even if you just planted a few seeds in a flower pot or cleaned the cluttered bathroom or just got out of bed! If it took effort and you did it, write it down … It fucking counts!

Make sure to note any obstacles you had to overcome to get there. Write down how you felt along the way and how great it was to feel that shift forward. And maybe you didn’t feel the shift forward until right this minute when you really thought about it.

Now get excited about it! Celebrate it! Celebrate YOU! And don’t forget to include lots of congratulatory statements at the end like, “I kinda kicked ass on that one.” or “I Rock, baby!”

And, PS, if you are going to try and tell me that you haven’t moved forward in any way at all this year, Imma have to call bullshit on that. In fact, right now, reading this, trying to make your life better … BAM! That’s moving forward baby! You’re a rock star!
