Halfway There!

Last Update: October 23, 2016

Hey Gang! Tomorrow marks the halfway point of our 30 day blogging challenge. I'm finding out what running a marathon instead of a sprint really means. If you are participating in the challenge, keep up the great work, we're almost there!

I'd like to welcome back our fine Ambassador, Steve Cox, after a two week disconnect. He has some very interesting things to share about his experience over on his profile. If you have a minute, go check out his latest blog posts.

I'm glad to have him back because of the excellent information and good cheer he spreads. Plus he's a really fun guy to chat with. So, welcome back Steve!

Yesterday I wrote a blog post on my WA profile that I decided to take down. I had added some links to another persons profile, some member created WA training and an outside website.

I was told that I should remove the links because what I had written was considered spam. The way I worded the lead up to one or more of the links made it sound like a "read more here" message. This goes against the rules of blogging here and I strongly urge everybody who keeps a regular blogging schedule here to read and understand these rules. It is what it is, lesson learned.

Finally it wouldn't be Sunday without some inspiration.

Great Time To Do More

Don't let success spoil your success. After you've achieved the goal, set your sights on an even higher goal and keep going.

The worst time to stop is after you've made progress, for it wastes the momentum you've worked so hard to build. Instead, keep riding that momentum, keep getting good work done.

Every accomplishment creates new opportunities. Instead of sinking into complacency, enjoy taking on a challenge that's even more meaningful than before.

When you've already done enough, that's a great time to do more. When you've felt the thrill of achievement, you're highly inspired to create it again.

You've already made a valuable contribution to life, already made a positive difference. That's a great reason to keep going, to keep giving more of the good stuff you have.

Enjoy each success and instead of resting on it, climb to the top of it, standing tall, looking forward. Then joyfully launch yourself on the next new adventure.

-Ralph Marston

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. As always, thanks for reading this!
