I Did It!!

I did it!  What did I do?  I’ve done a lot lately. 
·      I’ve written 250 blogs.
·      I’ve done over 100 radio shows.
·      I’ve read or listened to at least three books a month.
·      I’ve published my first e-book, and….
·      I’ve done my first video blog on YouTube!

Why am I so excited?  I’m excited because I said I would do it.  It feels good to do the things I say I will do.  It feels good to do them…period.  Abraham Maslow says we get self-esteem through accomplishment.  I think we also get energy, enthusiasm, joy and creativity.  Before I started my video blog, I was so tired and all I wanted to do was sleep.  Afterwards, I felt wide awake.  I know I want some down time and then to go to bed soon because I am tired, but I’m less tired than I was before I did my video.  Sometimes stress and fear make me more tired than I really am.
That’s it.  That’s all I have to say.  I usually write more, but I don’t have to.  I can write as little or as much as I want.  Tonight I choose to write just a little.  Sometimes we just need to do a little to reach our goals.  Other times we need to do much more.  Tonight I just needed to Get Started and Keep Going, but only for a little while.  Click on the link to my video blog.  Hopefully it will inspire you to also say, “I did it!”
