Motivational Messages

We are now at the midpoint of the year and I hope that your plans for success this year are progressing nicely.  My own plans are moving ahead but of course I’m always making adjustments as conditions change. Overall, I’m quite happy with my own progress so far.  How about you?

In case you are one of the thousands out there who haven’t really even started working seriously on what you had hoped to do this year, perhaps this month’s newsletter can act as a ‘kick in the behind’ for you since half the year has already gone by.  In fact, if you didn’t really make serious plans for yourself back in the New Year (and haven’t made any since then), a quote from Benjamin Franklin will certainly be for you.

Even the following motivational messages from Benjamin Franklin from so long ago will still be able to predict what the rest of your year will be like if you fail to make serious plans.  This is what he said.

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”

Those words might sound pretty harsh from Mr. Franklin but I think they ring true for us even today.  There’s no way that we can have our plans for achieving our goals set by themselves and then somehow have success magically appear out of nowhere.  Success is impossible without careful preparation.  Failure however, is possible without preparation.

If you had wanted to get in better health by exercising more, eating better, managing stress better and you really haven’t sat down to make serious plans on how to accomplish these, then you will probably end up 2010 the way you started as predicted by Ben Franklin.

If you wanted to get in a better financial position as a counter to the recession but really haven’t taken the time to learn more about investments and budgeting, then you will still end up the year as worried about finances as before.  Nothing will change.  Again, this is a prediction courtesy of Mr. Franklin.

There are six months left in the year.  If you haven’t made serious plans, do it now.  If you did make plans, it’s a perfect time to re-assess and monitor them to determine if any adjustments are warranted.

Personally, Benjamin Franklin’s wise words here kind of scares me a bit but in a good way.  His motivational messages are a real dose of reality and makes me get serious about my own goals.  I hope it does the same for you.

Until next month with more motivational messages,

Clint
