Get Up and Get Going

Get up, Get Out of Bed and Get Going.

Its so nice to lie in bed on a cold morning . Do you sometimes wake up at your regular time, get up go to the loo then crawl back into bed for a little more cosy time under the covers?

I am guilty …… well  sometimes.  But we need to remember there are only some times left for us and we would do best not to waste them.


Sometimes there is a strong head wind, its like everything and everyone is against us.. I think those are the times when we need to take a break and re calculate our direction going forward. It may mean we change direction completely or we wait out the storm, take a break and recharge.

Whatever we do, it is up to us. We need to be decisive when in a difficult situation and once we have made a decision, to run with it and not look back. There may be more rough times ahead and there will be other times when there is no wind at all and then we need a little push from behind.  The encouragement of a friend might be all it takes so be looking out for each other. 

Being Prepared for the Journey Ahead

To accomplish great things we need to be prepared, we need to put in the hard yards first. There may be months even years of work to prepare us for the challenges that lay ahead.

When young Jessica Watson prepared for her visionary journey of circumnavigating the world as a 16 year old she would not have left Australia’s shores without having been through many, many months of preparation and training.  She said “I am an ordinary girl who believed in a dream, you’ve just gotta have a dream, believe in it and work hard.

This is Jessica’s home- coming to Sydney Harbour being welcomed and congratulated  by hundreds of well wishers. Whilst Jessica sailed solo around the world she would have put in place a team of people to be her support and back up on land.

Jessica faced many challenges both before she left on this journey of a lifetime  and while she was out at sea but she saw it through. She did not give up but faced each challenge with determination and courage.

In Business we can do no less. We must put time into preparing and developing our craft and skills.

We need to learn from the experts, and grow our own knowledge base. This will take many hours of hard work and determination.

It will not happen overnight nor can we expect it to.

Have a dream

Believe in the dream

Do the hard work to fulfill the dream.

From the words of Zig Ziggler  : ”

“If you want to reach a goal, you must ‘see the reaching’ in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal.”


. “You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.”

  1. Hi, and thanks for the reminding.

    For sure I have a dream in mind. Ok, it’s not just as sailing around the world but for me a so far unreached goal anyway.

    I often look at the pic that shows my closest goal and really get excited knowing I can reach it.

    I like the comparison of life and sailing. We have to make the most of what we get and resistance usually doesn’t end in success.


    1. Thank you for commenting Stefan. If you have a dream you must seek to follow it. Make it happen. Believe in yourself to achieve great things and indeed you will.


  2. You are right about just wanting to crawl back into the warm bed. Usually my kitties walk all over me in the morning though, so I have to get up because they won’t let me sleep!

    Wealthy Affiliate sounds interesting. I imagine when you start a large project like learning how to build a website and start affiliate marketing that you’ll want to leap out of bed in the morning and get working on it. There’s a lot to learn about that stuff, for sure.


    1. Thank you for your comment Susan. I have a beautiful black cat that demands feeding and insists I get out of bed. But it is always worth it because I seem to run out of time each day.


  3. Very well put. I think you sum it up for all of the old fogies.:) I call it a time to reinvent oneself. One should never stop learning. To stop learning means you have become stagnant. I suggest finding your true purpose in life and act accordingly.


    1. Thank you Maurice for your comments. It does require some discipline but we do need a kick in the pants some time. I am motivated by all te learning on WA and each day I learn more I can apply. There just are not enough hours in the day.
