When Life Has You On the Mat




Sometimes Life can knock us for a loop. We’re flat on the mat and down for the count. It looks like it’s the end of us because the count is edging toward 6, then 7, then 8…

This is the time to dig deep, reach way down inside yourself, and find the grit to do one teesy tiny, itsy bitsy thing that will move you a micron closer to your dream.

Doing one little thing–no matter how small or how seemingly insignificant–is profoundly powerful.

It sends a mighty message to Life that you will not be beaten. And you send an eloquent message to yourself that you can and you will figure out how to save yourself.


Your homework is to take the next teensy tiny bit of a step toward your dreams. Dig deep. Find the grit–you have it, it’s there for you. Then take that itsy bitsy step.

You can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

  1. Exactly! Taking action, even if it doesn’t change your situation, changes how much you respect yourself. Respect yourself and keep fighting. Thanks for the post!


    1. I am sorry that I missed your comment. I apologize for taking so long to reply.

      You are quite welcome, AmyBeAll2015. Respecting yourself and your dreams is the launching pad for your quest to achieve your dreams. And, it’s the safe haven to return to when the going gets tough, as it sometimes will. The best way to keep your respect strong is to keep taking actions toward your dreams. Little tidbits of actions add up, which is great because oftentimes it’s the little tidbits that are easy to fit into our schedules. Tidbits are less intimidating as well.

      Keep going! Keep taking little bits of steps toward your dreams. You can do it! I’m always cheering you on!

      Thank you for your comment and thank you for reblogging my post. I appreciate it.

      Yes, it’s so true to keep taking action toward your dreams. Even if it’s just a tidbit of a step, it adds up. And the momentum that taking action generates is priceless. We wonder how to keep the momentum going and it’s by continually taking action toward our dreams that keeps the forward thrust going. The actions don’t have to be huge leaps and bounds. They can be small, simple things such as a phone call to register for a seminar, or reading an article in a trade magazine. It can also be taking a nap or going to bed early so that you are rested so you can think clearly the next day! 🙂

      So, take action and keep on taking action and soon you’ll find you’re living the life of your dreams!

      You can do it, I’m sure of it! You always have me cheering you on!
