Move On !

I went close, stepped intorepparttar cobweb-clothed hall. Thick dust, thick enough to spark an asthmatic crisis rose fromrepparttar 136132 ground as I walk on it like it was some continental rug. Everything is in perfect shape. (The carved wooden school crest sitting atrepparttar 136133 upper part ofrepparttar 136134 front wall,repparttar 136135 polished platform, which has aged with dust from being abandoned. Every thing seemed perfect but with age.

Inrepparttar 136136 abandoned hall, right in its center, I closed my eyes and it all came back. I smelled it like it was yesterday. It was fresh asrepparttar 136137 dew on grass beforerepparttar 136138 morning sun. The memories flooded back as I heardrepparttar 136139 students chorusedrepparttar 136140 hymns in unison fromrepparttar 136141 songs of praise pocket book, I could hearrepparttar 136142 school chaplain: preaching a motivational sermon torepparttar 136143 boys. I heardrepparttar 136144 school song as it rose likerepparttar 136145 crashing ofrepparttar 136146 waves against a ship. I opened my eyes; felt some drops sank into my cotton blue shirt, chilling my body. I dried my tears and walked out.

I had to leaverepparttar 136147 past behind me. I wasn’t going to stand there like that war veteran polishing a medal of honor he received some forty years ago. I would never stand one more minute there like that man who thinks, if he were not bankrupt fifteen years ago, he would be rich now. I wasn’t going to let tears down my cheeks like that lady who lost her job as a secretary because she wasn’t computer literate and all she could do was complain, “I could type six million words in one minute.” I have to let go ofrepparttar 136148 past and move on.

I’m not just talking about me, that war veteran or that secretary (that lady rather, she lost her job.) I’m talking to you who sit there in self-pity because you just lost your coolest job. Don’t sit there bemoaning your fate, explaining to your friends what went wrong. You don’t have to tell your sisters or brothers how bad it is and expect someone to come to hug you and say, “sorry, everything will be alright.” Come on wake up. Whatever happened seconds ago is already history. The last minute before you start reading this is history.

Pick up yourself, dry your tears like I did, raise your head and shoulders and do what? MOVE ON!

There is more inrepparttar 136149 future. Plunge into it. And you will realise that all past glory and failures are nothing but a page in your history

The Benefits of Coaching

Written by Peggy Porter

Continued from page 1
A coach assists you in keeping your focus so reaching your goals can be much easier as well as quicker. Could I have written this book withoutrepparttar help of a coach? Probably. Would I have written this book withoutrepparttar 136009 help of a coach? Probably not. My coach assisted me in developing a time line and an action plan so I knew exactly what to do and when I needed to do it in order to reach my final goal. Do you have personal goals you want to meet but have a difficult time staying focused and motivated? Do you make resolutions every year only to be makingrepparttar 136010 same ones againrepparttar 136011 following year? If so, consider hiring a coach and let 2005 berepparttar 136012 year of achieving resolutions, not just another year of making them.
