I just finished reading the new book, It’s Your Life, Live BIG by Josh Hinds. When I heard Josh had a new book I was eager to read it. I have been reading Josh’s Let’s Talk Motivation ezine for several years. I have been in the habit of saving articles he wrote because I find his writing so inspirational. I often refer to them when I need a bit of motivation.
Let’s face it, sometimes it can be a challenge to keep on track towards successful achievement of your goals. This is true with anything you intend to accomplish that will improve your life. I have especially benefited from Josh’s newsletters to help me keep on track as I built my home business. Working from home can be a challenge. It’s easy to get distracted with things that don’t produce results.
I really recommend you read Josh’s new book, It’s Your Life, Live BIG. When you read his amazing story and the challenges Josh went through to achieve his own success, you can’t help but be inspired to overcome your own challenges. Josh shares the things he learned so you can apply those things to your own life.
As you are working towards your goals, you need to be learning and improving the skills that will get you there. Josh makes a statement, “You don’t have to get it right starting out, you just have to get started.” That’s similar to a statement one of my mentors, Joe Schroeder, used to say a lot. Joe’s went, “You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.” Adjustments will be made along the way but if you stay in the planning stage without taking any action, you will never see the achievement of your goals and dreams. Here is another gem from Josh: “The best laid goals are simply dreams until you add the fuel of action.”
I also really loved the lesson on encouragement. “Life is like a boomerang, the more good you throw out the more you receive in return.” I have noticed this to be true. The more I focus on doing good and helping people, the more success I have in all areas of my life. When I focus on negative things and problems, the more stuck I become.
