Thought for the Day

“On any journey, we must find out where we are before we can plan the first step.”       Kathy Boerink

When we have the desire to change a behavior, it is natural to want to jump in before the motivation fades. However, if you jump in, you miss the opportunity to truly understand your behavior. Do you do a behavior because of a craving, time issue, or fear of failure? What drives you to act the way you do? Having the desire to change is wonderful! However, before you take that first step, take a moment to assess your behavior and where you are today. Understand what drives your behavior because in your journey, you will have to address what is driving your behavior…not just the behavior.

Today, ask yourself, “What drives my actions?”

Today, whatever comes, act and move forward.
