Hold Fast Iron

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17

Hold Fast Iron is dedicated to sharpening the lives of others.  

HOLD FAST FRIDAY 1/1/2016

Your past successes, failures, and the acumination of all your experiences has led you to the exact place where you are.  As 2015 comes to a close, 2016 is open to as far reaching as the mind can dream.  Look back at your past so you can move forward.  The past holds the keys to your future success.

 

Goal set to and goal set through.  Avoid the inevitable lull after reaching your goals, goal set through to the next goal.

For example, I plan on running a 5K race on Jan 31st 2016 in 2016.  As the race draws nears I set a new goal, a 10k race on March 12th 2016.  As you can see, I have a 2+ month running program in place with two highlighted events.  This process must continually evolve in the manner.  Of course, this goal setting template can be applied to all aspects of your life.  You are limited by only your imagination.

We are creatures of habit.  As we float down this river we call life, it is far easier to stay on this course.  This time of year we hear a lot about resolutions.  Changes people want to make in their lives.  We tend to forget these changes we want to make in our lives are going to be tough.  It is going to require sacrifice.  It is going to involve setbacks.  The shortest and quickest way between two points, you and your goal, is a straight line.  That is not how life works.  In reality the line between you and your goal is going to look more like a seismograph.  At first erratic but over time, you will become more focused and ultimately reaching your goal.  Remember that even though the path to reaching your goals will be wild, you are closer than you were the previous day.  You are closer than you were a year ago.
