One of the most important things I learned from reading Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing: Jed McKenna, is the idea of moving forward.
What I mean by that is the only constant in this world is change. You are either going forward or backward. It doesn’t really matter what happens in your life. However, if you keep moving forward towards your goals, you will get there. Or at least you will be enjoying your life more. Either way that is a good thing. When you move forward you keep on keeping on. You will be more joy-filled and it will be easy to keep your dedication.
Because all you have to do is move forward. Even if it is just one step towards your goal this day. Move forward. Keep on going. You can do this!
