MM&I Header

May 26, 2014 - Are intangibles hindering tangible results? Is what is unknown causing you to hesitate or not fully engage in striving toward what you ultimately want to achieve? There is no way to know exactly what you may encounter or is ahead of you that could impact what you are trying to accomplish. This is why your belief and commitment needs to be stronger than your uncertainty. A strong belief in the value and ultimate benefit of the outcome will enable you to stay focused more on what you know is tangible, than being distracted by what is intangible.


Take an MM&I Moment to reinforce why you want to accomplish specific goals. Now list your uncertainties or what you potentially fear that may be causing you to hesitate. Finally, list one small step you can take toward making progress that could also lessen your uncertainty or concerns. Allow your "whys" in achieving your goals inspire and motivate you into action each time you find yourself hesitating. After a while, you won't be hesitating at all as you see and feel real progress being made.
