I believe this marks the halfway point of this course. So much learned and so much more to learn. I think my biggest challenge right now is understanding and applying that knowledge does not apply itself. Those words have hit me like a brick this week. I work hard at learning, but forget that in the process of learning I need to be applying. That is an area where I must determine to become stronger at!
There have been several phrases from OG Mandino that have jumped out at me regularly in my reading. “I recognize that each day I am tested by life… If I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I succeed.” This is where I am this morning. I choose to continue to charge forward. “One step at a time is not too difficult.”
“I persist and develop my skills…” This means to me that not only do I learn new skills, but I apply them. It is a process. I remind myself of that. “I greet the new sun with confidence that this will be the best day of my life.”
