You have your goals. They may be small goals or they may be large goals. As you strive to achieve your goals, sometimes your conditions change and your goals will change as well.
Your small goals are clear and you understand the actions and know the path you need to take to reach these goals. In your mind, they're achievable and you know it's just a matter of time.
Your larger goals are less clear. You understand the outcome that you would like to achieve. Yet, the path to travel is not as clear and you have doubts as to your ability to accomplish these goals.
Determination will make you find the path to your goals. It will cause you to educate yourself on what it will take to reach your goals. It will move you to take the path less traveled and it will push to do the work that's required to reach your goal.
Surround yourself with positive messages, inspire yourself on a daily basis, and come to grips with your own power of determination. Then you will become unstoppable in achieving positive life changes for yourself and your family.
