6. Manage Your Morale. Of course, it?s not always much fun to be stuck in the hard slog phase of goal-building. Nobody?s cheering any more. You have nothing to show for your efforts. And the dream still feels as far away as ever. That?s when you have to manage your morale. That means managing your stress, keeping things light, and working on the things you can?t see: your thinking patterns, your emotions, and your spirit. And, like the fluid in the butterfly, these may just be the things that will make you fly. ?I can say: ?I am terribly frightened and fear is terrible and it makes me uncomfortable, so I won?t do it.? Or I could say: ?Get used to being uncomfortable.? It is uncomfortable doing something risky. But so what? Do you want to stagnate and just be comfortable?? (Barbra Streisand)
We human beings are very similar to the plant world. We grow best when we work with Nature and time. Don?t be in too much of a hurry to achieve your goals. If you hold on with faith, certainty, and determination, you?ll get there in due course when the time is right.
