“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.” – Jim Rohn
We all have goals, or want to have certain accomplishments in our lives. Too often we don’t make a plan in order to get there. The goal appears to be far away. In order to get to the end of the journey we have to start on it first. Step one is to think about a few small and easy ways for us to get there. Identify skills you need in order to reach your goal, and take the time in order to learn those skills. You cannot achieve a new goal right away, but what you can do is take it one step at a time. Keep it simply in the beginning. The temptation is to do everything at once, but that is we get overwhelmed. If we take our time, and get to our goal one step at a time then we increase our odds of making our goal. Growth is always the ultimate goal when trying to reach an accomplishment.
One of my goals when I go hiking or out taking photos, I am always trying to find water. Last summer I went hiking at Crowders Mountain. After my son and I hiked up the mountain, I stayed at the top to enjoy the great view from the top. On the way down, we took a different route back because I was still trying to find a stream, lake or some form of water to take photos of. I finally found this small stream on the path we were on. I took as many photos of this small stream as I could.
