Motivational Moments: Work hard on seeing your goals through
Tuesday, 10 March 2015 15:36
Have you ever felt like you were working so hard and doing all the right things in your life to be a success, but nothing seems to be going as you planned? Are you at a point where you think that maybe you are working so hard and maybe it's time you gave up on this goal because nothing is happening fast enough for you? Remember just because you don't see the end result right away, doesn't mean you haven't made any progress. Achieving any goal takes lots of focus and can take a long period of time. (Depending on the goal.) But the key is to never give up because you never know how close you are to completing anything if you give up before you completed it.

Lately, I've been dealing with some individuals who are constantly talking about the things that happened to them in their past. I am comfortable with this because this happens to be something that I write about occasionally. I share with my readers the importance of letting go of their past and how to move on from past experiences that may be preventing them from achieving their goals. But truthfully, there are so many individuals who are not able to move on very easily. So after much thought and insight into this, I discovered some of the reasons why so many are drawn to events that have already happened to them and why they reminisce on the past and why their past has such a hold on them. Whether they're thinking about the good times or bad times, there is something that draws them in.

Here are a few things to consider as we work to help facilitate healing for the Black family.
