We sometimes spend so much time speculating on what the future could hold that we forget to focus on what matters..... RIGHT NOW. This is the only thing that we have control over.

If you can consistently see success at the end of every day than you are well on your way to achieving your goals. Set small achievable goals for yourself that if followed through on will lead to the realization of your overarching goal. So get up right now and do what you need to do to achieve a small victory, because after all...... "Tall Oaks from Little Acorns Grow"
