I was talking to my wife, "BIG MOMMA", fussing about how no matter how hard I work I never seem to be able to get to where I want to be in life. Everyone else does so very little and every thing they want seems to fall into their laps from heaven. Why do I have to struggle so. What have I done to make God so againist me that I can never get a break? " BIG MOMMA" told me the person I was speaking of had found the secret to their success. They had found something they loved to do and had found a way to make a living doing it. Everything they did was designed to get them to their main goal. Before they got to their main goal, they had little goals that incrementally took them where they needed to go.
That's when it hit me, how right she was and how stupid I have been. Unintentially, I have wasted alot of time keeping me from being where I want to be. No more! Today is going to be a day of rest and planning. A time to sit down and set new short and long term goals. I am not really jealous of my friend I spoke of earlier. I'm proud of them and proud for them that they worked hard and have achieved their dreams. I am just ready to reach some of my dreams.
