Almost 9 years ago, my whole life changed forever. I became disabled from a massive stroke that took away the use of the left side of my body. I am blessed that I regained the ability to walk again, but it took a lot of hard work and persistence. I still don’t have any functional use of my left hand and have set goals to try and get stronger.
The brain finding new pathways is a very slow process. There were times I felt as if I wasn’t making much progress only to see substantial gains a week later. It was painstakingly hard and I was tired. Have you been there? Tired of working towards a goal each and every day only to feel like you are running in place?
I recommend people try to break that goal up into smaller goals. For me, my main goal was to walk again, but I broke it up into smaller goals each day/week like increasing how many strengthening exercises I did or how often the frequency. These smaller, more attainable goals keep us motivated and ultimately push us closer to our main goal!
When setting big ambitious goals, you don’t have to see the whole path, you just have to see your next step. It will be hard, but that’s what makes it worth it.
Don’t give up on your dreams. God put them on your heart for a reason, you got this!
