In times like these we are constantly reminded about obstacles people have to overcome in life….and it’s during times like these we reflect on what really matters…So our prayers first and foremost go out to the Japanese people. At the same time we are reminded about the process and obstacles we, on a much smaller scale, go through daily once our lives are back to a more “normal” routine. When disaster strikes we have a need to reflect on our lives the way we have chosen to live it; the obstacles we once thought were impossible to overcome suddenly seem less difficult to overcome and definately of less importance in the overall scope of things…
“Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.” – Isak Dinesen
And in Life Coaching we talk a lot about Goal Setting. Today I would like you to remember the following quote…”Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long terms; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment.” – Tony Robbins

If you like to help the victims in Japan consider donating whatever you can afford to one of the many disaster relief organizations that gladly will accept your donation, small or large does not matter. What matters is the action you take to do something rather than sitting on the sideline doing nothing…ever so small action is better than doing nothing – and it will give you the deepest and most longlasting sense of fulfillment…
