Weekly Challenge:

Choose your starting point for your next step …

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


There are only two mistakes

one can make along the road to truth;

not going all the way, and not starting.

~ Buddha



The starting point of one goal can be disguised as the ending of a previous goal … the reality is that we are never at a stopping point … where are you on your journey? According to Buddha, we can potentially make two mistakes along the road to truth ~ (1) not going all the way and (2) not starting.


I am not interested in negative self-talk, berating myself for not reaching my goals or feeling sorry for myself when things don’t go as planned, which can certainly happen. What I do like is to evaluate the recent past, look at what worked, what didn’t work and what needs to happen to proceed. The evaluation process is essential for progress ~ it’s all about collecting information. Information is the key to progress and once we come to a cross-road in life, we need information to make an educated decision moving forward.


Now is the time for us to take a deeper look at the past weeks of this game and our Smart Goals and evaluate what happened, where we were on point with our goals and where we need to tighten up our plan, re-focus our energy and organize our next steps. Armed with the information we gathered from this evaluation, let’s look at our intentions for the future.
