Being on this journey, obviously the ultimate goal is to be successful. To reach my goal weight and to be healthy.
I broke up the word –SUCCESS–
What this word means to me as an individual and how each letter will effect how I continue and ultimately finish this journey of mine.
The meaning of the word -SUCCESS-
“The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.”
Let’s break it up
“Trusting in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgement.”
This first ‘S’ is so important, if you don’t have confidence in yourself that you CAN do this…why start?? You need to believe in yourself or it will just be another failed attempt.
“Not liable to break or able to be broken easily.”
Yes, it won’t always be an easy road but I WILL NOT break. Every battle, every emotion I will face and overcome.
“The power or ability to do something.”
I do have legs, I do have arms and a young, healthy brain. I am completely CAPABLE of doing this so long my MIND is on what needs to be done. (Your mind is powerful)
“The state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.”
Before you start this you need to realise it is not going to be easy all the time but you need to make the decision that no matter what you will keep fighting for the end result. Work hard and stay focused.
“The degree to which something is successful in producing a desired result; success.”
Have you ever heard the phrase, “It’s not always where you finish in the race that matters, but how you run the race” – this simply means: don’t look at the end result, concentrate on doing the ‘inbetweens’ right so that when you get to the end you know you did your best.
“Relating to the identification of long-term or overall aims and interests and the means of achieving them.”
Decide what it is you want to achieve, set goals along the way. Plan what needs to be done to reach your goal and follow those plans/goals you set for yourself, day in and day out.
“The ability to control one’s feelings and overcome one’s weaknesses.”
I am an emotional person, I do not see it as a weakness but it can effect the outcome of a lot of things, if you tend to get emotional quickly it can lead to you giving up or be demotivated. I will not let my emotions get in the way of what I want to achieve. I need to be focused on what I want and work hard to get there.
That is my personal breakdown of what the word -Success- means to me.
I hope that some of you can relate your situation to this breakdown and that it will help you to be the success you are destined to be 🙂
