"Have the dogged determination to follow through to achieve your goal; regardless of circumstances or whatever other people say, think, or do." -- Paul Meyer
Some books leave a lasting impression because of their merit and what they convey hits you at JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT! Such a book for me was a book by Wally Amos where the message was what I really needed to hear at the time. Wally became famous for his delicious chocolate chip cookies: the Famous Amos brand. Wally has since sold his company to Kellogg, moved to Hawaii, written a lots more inspirational books, and started a new company called Chip & Cookie. You can read up on Wally here at his website.
What Wally said in his book that inspired me and which I've never forgotten is this, and I'll paraphrase: whatever you want to do, begin it. Zero listen to anyone else. Just keep going. Just put one foot in front of the other.
The reason I'm bringing this story into an astrological format is this. I feel a lot of people USE astrology to cop out on beginning things and/or following through. If it's not Mercury Retrograde, it's something else like a Jupiter/Saturn/Neptune t-square. They use astrology as their alibi! Sure, I know TO SOME DEGREE what we natalize has the mark of the astro timing, but more importantly, it's what we BELIEVE! If we believe we ARE successful and keep on keeping on, we WILL be successful. There may be detours, set-backs and renewals, but the foundation is belief.
That's my two cents for the day. Smile. Comments anyone?
