Having your goals and your dreams in an area where you constantly see them will help you out tremendously by keeping your eyes on the prize. This will give you a constant reminder of why you must accomplish your goals and it will also allow you to keep focus.
2. Focus only on TODAY
It can be easy to get caught up thinking about the future or regretting the past when it comes to getting success, hitting your goals in life. Maybe right now your in a position that your not too happy about and you wish things were better. Well, the most important thing you can do is focus on the present moment because that is all we have, is the now. Every single day your the result of what you did on the days prior. So if you turn that around you can change who you want to be, what you want to do based on deciding what you do today. What food are you putting into your mouth, what are you doing with your spare time, are you reading books, working on your projects, etc? By making a conscious effort on focusing on TODAY, after a week, a month, 6 months, a year.. the changes you’ll make will be huge. You’ll transform yourself into the person you want to be by focusing on the TODAY.
3. Celebrate the small victories.
Just like the title says, celebrate the small victories no matter what. You owe it to yourself, no matter how small the goal or victory is. This will keep the fire alive by forcing you to acknowledge all the progress you’ve been making with your goals. By rewarding your small victories it will help you find love and make you much happier with all the hard work you’ve been putting into each day.
4. Create an inspiring environment
Having a creative and inspiring environment will help keep the drive alive with motivation. This is where the magic happens, this is where you’ll be spending most of your time. Surrounding yourself with motivational images and quotes will keep your goals in check. But be careful because you’re going to want to keep your work area clean. Having clutter can clutter your thought process and it can also be a bit depressing.
5. Read Daily
It’s no secret that leaders are readers. Now, I’m not talking about reading fictional books… I’m talking about reading quality books that have an infinite amount of knowledge. Reading books with people who’ve gone through struggle and pain to obtain success will keep you motivated. It’ll keep you motivated because you’ll realize that many people before you had to deal with the same problems and road blocks that your currently experiencing. The best part about reading is… you’ll learn valuable lessons from these books and how people overcame their struggles to obtain success. And if you’re on a similar journey you can take that same information and apply it to your life and your goals.

Hunter Hayes is kicking off the week leading up to “The 48th Annual CMA Awards” with a free nighttime concert in downtown Nashville on Monday, Nov. 3rd as part of Hayes’ involvement with the USO’s “Every Moment Counts” campaign.
A rare hometown performance for Hayes, the street party presented by exclusive radio partner WSIX commemorates one of many “moments” in honor of Sergeant First Class Tyler Arnold and his family, who will be in attendance at the show along with servicemen and women currently stationed at nearby Fort Campbell. SFC Arnold has been deployed six times, including multiple trips to Iraq and Afghanistan, and is being recognized by the USO for his service, sacrifice and strength during the “moments” Arnold missed with his wife and two young daughters during his deployments.
As “Every Moment Counts” approaches its one year anniversary, Hayes has partnered with the USO to create special #USOmoments for troops and their families at each of 17 stops on his Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, which commences Tuesday, Oct. 28th at Best Buy Theater in New York City. At each show, Hayes has created a unique moment recognizing all service members and their families while integrating concert-goers, including invited troops and their families, in an unprecedented way utilizing customized Glow Motion Technologies wristbands as part of the USO “Every Moment Counts” campaign. All fans in attendance at the shows can download the official Hunter Hayes Tour App (available for Apple and Android phones) to physically integrate into the tour’s lighting design and participate in the entire show using #YouAreTheShow.

Truth About The Michael Brown Shooting – WET TV
What Upsets Stefan Molyneux Off About The Michael Brown Shooting: A scathing look at the rush to judgment and fervent race-baiting in the Michael Brown shooting case. New evidence and witness testimony has emerged as the grand jury decides the future of Officer Darren Wilson in the aftermath of the Ferguson, Missouri riots. After watching Fox news it seems that the people of Ferguson don’t want to know the truth, but the truth is out there and probably in this video.

In your typical plane, there’s the aisle seat, the middle seat and the window seat –the one with the best view
But what if pretty much everywhere you looked acted like a window?
That’s the aim behind this project from the Centre for Process Innovation in the United Kingdom.
There are features like live video streamed to vivid OLED displays offering seamless panoramic views and entertainment, information and in-flight services at your fingertips.
Panoramic views and personal displays – sounds like a new level of luxury. But the company explains it’s all about sustainability and saving money: no windows means less weight.
“For every 1% reduction in weight, the approximate fuel saving is 0.75%. If you save weight, you save fuel. And less fuel means less CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and lower operational cost. … Everyone wins.”
“Expensive tickets could get cheaper if it costs less to fuel the plane”
And although there will be no windows, Daily Mirror points out the screens would be able to simulate a view of what’s going on outside. CPI officials say the view would be in real-time using cameras mounted on the plane’s exterior.
The Guardian talk to a CPI employee who explained “The idea came about after discussions about how printable electronics, in which the centre specializes, could be used. We … understood that there was this need to take weight out of aircraft.”
So, would people want to get on a windowless plane?
According to CPI, the high-tech cabin could be ready for takeoff within the decade.
I will restore you to health and heal your wounds. I am with you, within you, all around you-continually at work in your life. When your awareness of Me grows dim, My Presence continues to shine brightly upon you. This Light has immense healing Power. So dare to ask great things of Me, remembering who I am. I am able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you ask or think. Pondering My limitless ability to help you will strengthen your faith and encourage you to pray boldly.
Praying in My Name-with perseverance-can accomplish great things. Learn from the parable of the persistent widow, who refused to give up. She kept bringing her petition to a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. Eventually, her persistence wore him down, and he gave her what she sought. How much more will I respond to My children who cry out to Me day and night! Though you may have to wait a long time, do not give up. For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds.
But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord, because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares. -Jeremiah 30:17
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. -Ephesians 3:20 nkjv
I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth? -Luke 18:1-8
For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened. -Luke 11:10 amp
