Today’s lifestyle inspiration is about not giving up until your goal is reached. As I did last week, I’ll use the 2013 movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” with Ben Stiller as inspiration. When Walter is locating the missing negative for the last cover issue of Life Magazine he doesn’t give up until he reaches his goal of locating it. This includes connecting with others for support, traveling out of the country, jumping in and out of a helicopter, battling a shark, and most importantly getting out of his comfort zone!
For me, I’ve dealt with a learning disability my whole life. For a long time I didn’t like using the word disability and certainly didn’t share this with anyone because I saw it as a weakness. It’s only recently that I’ve made the choice to embrace all of who I am and that includes my learning disability. I’ve dealt with feeling stupid, not belonging, and the fact that it takes me longer to do certain things compared to others. Although I’ve had many frustrating moments, I’ve developed an I can do it attitude which has helped me reach numerous goals! And I’ve discovered what I only saw as a weakness has some strength too!
What goals would you like to reach and what kind of obstacles will you have to get out of your comfort zone or develop an I can do it attitude to achieve creating your best lifestyle?!
I’d encourage you to get any needed support and understand that the path to reaching your goals might look different than you originally thought. Be open and know that developing a strong, courageous, and confident attitude takes practice, time, and is definitely a process! 🙂
