Be Afraid to Stop

“Be not afraid of going slowly;  be only afraid of standing still”. Chinese Proverb

I just wrote a blog post at jeff noel.com about this very subject.  About wondering if now is the right time, if the current approach is the right approach.

This type of potential self-doubt and potential fear, can sabatoge us from breaking through to something we can be great at.  And something we should be great at.  It’s just that we are late bloomers and are playing catch up.

This time delay – from creating a compelling vision – to it actually materializing, takes way longer than most people can comprehend.  This is why people give up and stop,

So, be not afraid of going slow.   Be afraid of stopping.

Mid Life Anger?

Anger at Mid Life?

Probably.

There’s a lot we have to be angry about at mid life.

Yet, may I humbly submit this midlife quote for your consideration?

“Anyone who angers you, conquers you”.  — Sister Kenny

Sometimes, it takes every fiber in my body and soul not to get angry.  And like other lessons I’ve learned through 50 years of life, staying focused and disciplined is always better and more productive than not.

Good luck.  Stay with it.   Don’t give up.  Forgive yourself and keep trying.

There’s a Chinese proverb that says something to this effect:

“Fall down seven times, get up eight”.

Make it a GREAT day.  Carpe diem. jeff noel  🙂
