I'm a little late in joining this week, but here is this week's theme from What's going on in....Heidi's Head!
"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing" Walt Disney
I really love this quote because it is something I believe in even though its not something I practice too often! We all talk about the things we want to do in our daily lives or in the future, but really, the only way to do it is to start doing! Everyone must start somewhere and some goals are easier to accomplish than others, but they all take hard work.
I will begin with my son....he has loved to play baseball since he could walk-he won't sit down and watch an MLB game but he loves to play it! Now that he is older, it becomes more difficult, there is more work to be done in order to stay fit and go out to play these games. He does not enjoy all the workouts, but this could potentially help him get a scholarship for college, so he knows that it is going to take lots of hard work to stay on top of his game so he can get noticed someday!
My daughter is another one....LOL, she wants to run before she could walk! She's been taking dance classes(ballet, tap, jazz, flamenco, salsa & hip-hop) since the age of 3. Now, after years of telling me that she wants to be a dance teacher, she tells me she wants to quit all other dance classes except salsa & hip-hop (the fun classes)! I, of course, said NO!! No ballet - No other classes! The basis of all dances is ballet and if she wants to be a dancer/dance teacher, she needs to know everything! After much back & forth, she finally got it! She understood so much that now she wanted to join gymnastics to be just like Mckenna from American Girl and do the bars & balance beam. Before I enrolled her, I sat her down and explained that she would be doing a lot of other instructional exercises before she got to do the bars or balance beam. To my surprise, she fully understood and is ecstatic with her classes!
So, for now, it seems that my kids have a full understanding of "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing" Walt Disney
Now, if only I could be like that & finally take the jump in to real estate - I've been talking about it for years!!
