I saw this quote on an athlete's bracelet... it spoke to me, so I thought I would share it with you.
"Dream big. Work hard."
Such plain and simple words that really hit me when I read them. If only we looked at life that simply. Dream your dreams, and work hard to achieve them, don't stop or surrender for anything. So often I have let outside obstacles get in the way or knock me off task on the way to achieving something I dreamed of. In gymnastics it was very black and white. I had a goal, and I worked each day to achieve it. Usually it was getting a new skill or combination or higher score, and my obstacles were most frequently my fear.
Now, my goals are a little more grey. I don't have answers for everything, and taking one more turn isn't going to help me the way it used to. But still, I wan't to live by those words, "dream big, work hard." Even though the lines are a little hazy, and I'm not certain what lies ahead... I'm not going to stop dreaming. I may not be sure what the hard work entails anymore, but I'll figure it out. If I keep dreaming, eventually I'll figure it out, right?
Day 16: What are your goals? Say them (or just one of them) out loud to yourself and write a plan of action. How do you plan to get there? Figure out your plan, and start working hard!
