Todays Words of Inspiration - Progress!

Today's Quote:

    “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

My favorite teacher in High School loved George Bernard Shaw. He had us read and dissect Shaw and Shakespeare so much that I could probably attribute quotes to their authors in my sleep. I don't know about you, but I often have to remind myself that being busy, and making real progress are not necessarily one and the same. There are days where I'm super busy from the moment I open my eyes to the moment I close them again at night. But when I assess what I actually accomplished, sometimes I'm satisfied, at other times I'm not. I've come to understand that busy is not always progress, and I've reached a point where measurable progress is important to ME.

Not necessarily the progress that others feel I should make. Not necessarily the obvious benchmarks of professional success. But personal and spiritual progress.

Today I was a mixture of busy and making actual progress. And now at the end of a day of triumphs, I am satisfied that today I have made progress in an area that felt hopelessly stuck. I wish you that same satisfaction to savor.

Today's Challenge: You can affirm that you attract progress, but do you really expect it? Deep down, do you truly feel you deserve it?

Today's Breathing Affirmation: Close your eyes, take a deep, slow breath in through your nose, and affirm "I Expect AND Attract Progress."

  2. There really is a huge difference between busy and progress. Sometimes I just get so wrapped up in busyness that my life seems to rush past me. In those times I find myself overwhelmed and frustrated. Sometimes intentionally slowing down and doing a whole lot of nothing can be very centering.

  3. @HeavenSent1 - Good for you! I find that when I'm living authentically and purposefully that things really get better!

    @SocialStudiesSoubrette - I couldn't agree with you more, when I take some time for myself I come back to work with a much more relaxed and positive attitude and it just makes things so much easier.
