Reread what you described. Then ask yourself why each listed item is important to you. Think about what you wanted and listed, and then think about why you wrote it down, then write that down. Remember that there is no right or wrong way of doing this journal exercise. Whatever is important to you is correct. Whatever you journaled is exactlyrepparttar right answer.

You can use a blank book, a notebook, or a computer for this journal.

What can happen is that you can focus and clarify what is important to you and why. You may want to journal aboutrepparttar 145620 same topics from time to time, say every few years, usingrepparttar 145621 same blank book. As time passes you can reread what was important and what is important.

Build Your Ark, Save Your World

Written by A.Z. Alfred

Continued from page 1

I hope you know whom Iím talking about? If you are a regular student ofrepparttar Sunday school class you should know. Anyway, Iím talking about Noah, who like you and me had a dream and work towards its accomplishment. Did you say his vision was divine?

The vision was nothing different fromrepparttar 145619 one you had in your mind. Itís nothing different from that dream you abandoned because your friend said it wouldnít work. Itís nothing different from that vision you tossed throughrepparttar 145620 window because your parents think such dream is insane. Itís nothing different fromrepparttar 145621 lifetime goal you shy away from because you got so many people laughing at you. Those are simply your critics at work.

If you are not criticized, you canít get better. If you are not laughed at, donít expect to be successful. If people did not say, ďIt wonít workĒ then you still have a long way to travel. Iím not saying walk intorepparttar 145622 streets sharing your dreams with every passer by but people donít have to like what you are doing or where you want to go. They donít have to come giving you backslaps or some courageous words to push you on. They are basically there to dislike your dream, then wonder how good you are doing and finally they will be left with no choice than to like your dream.
