When there is progress, there is peace of mind.
To bring harmony to One’s thoughts and actions, there must be a progressive track on which One can lead themselves. Thus, it is important to build a relationship with the concept of progress in One’s own efforts.
Understanding how to move forward is half the source of meeting a goal. Surprisingly, most do not give this step thorough attention. Contemplation on the guidelines of a goal will help One better measure how far they’ve come, and how much more to mount, before reaching the desired result.
A tangible measure of how much One has progressed can bring a great deal of joy and satisfaction. Conversely, the expectations of One’s progress–if unrealistic, and failure to meet anticipatory objectives–are a self-made trap for discouragement and despair. It is a thin line to walk, but with a steady pace and clear direction, One must only follow what is true to their spirit to succeed.
Form a strong, unwavering relationship with your One guiding spirit, and progress in all endeavors will be sure to follow.
