What have you accomplished today?

Written by Angela Atkinson


All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination, Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth.” Napoleon Hill

You get whatever accomplishment you are willing to declare.” Georgia O’Keeffe

So last night, as I pushed to meet a midnight deadline I had for a writing assignment, I felt a little stress. My middle son wasn’t feeling well and my daughter was a bit needy as she is teething, so I was forced to wait until everyone went to sleep to get my work done. That was okay, but the deadline loomed as I wished I could just go to bed. I’d been up the night before (and last night) with my middle son and was just exhausted.

Still, there’s this odd thing about me that I think y’all should know–I LOVE deadlines, and I cannot bring myself to miss one. So, there I was, writing my butt off. I made my deadline, and afterward, I realized that the sense of accomplishment I had made the entire event worth it.

The only thing I regretted was that my attitude was slightly negative during the process, which only made it more difficult for me. If I’d gone in with my usual smile and confidence, I’d have been done with less stress, and still have had the same feeling of accomplishment.

So, I suppose the point to today’s blog goes back to one I wrote a few days ago about following your passion. It turns out that sometimes following your passion takes a lot of work, and if you’re willing to do it, you can achieve your goals–whatever they are. Certainly, you need to declare your intentions and relax–but be aware of the signals that the universe is sending you.

Sometimes, we need to take action to fulfill our passions. Even the smallest action in that direction can start a snowball effect and help you meet your ultimate goals, whatever they may be. Part of the benefit, besides the actual goal being accomplished, is that you feel amazing when you’ve finished a project or plan. It’s something for which I was truly grateful last night.

Persistence and patience wins the race. Be strong, love yourself, and remember who you are at the base of it all. Give yourself the gift of accomplishment, and don’t forget to give yourself a pat on the back when you’ve made your goals, however small they may be.

Learn it, live it, love it!
xoxo
