Sometimes the thing I find most challenging is to keep my goals in my head and the reasons I do what I do. Staying inspired and keeping the fire burning strong in my soul is of such vital importance to keeping me on my chosen path. If I don't remind myself of why I'm doing something, if I don't keep asking myself why, the true reason behind it all can be lost. In my opinion the best thing that you can do to keep yourself charging towards your goals and always crating new ones is to always ask yourself questions. Now I'm not saying to constantly doubt yourself. I'm saying that always reminding yourself why, always keeping in mind how you got inspired to do this in the first place is a great way to keep thriving.
A few ways I do it is to ask myself, what was the point of this again? Why am I doing this particular action? What are my goals? What do I want to achieve? Another thing that is vitaly important is that when you answer these questions, answer them from the truest part of yourself and don't even think about what other want for you. You make your own happiness, your own path and you know yourself better than anyone on this planet.
Something that always keeps me inspired is to watch YouTube videos that inspire me and stir my emotions. Anything about veganism, anything from people that inspire me or who are on a similar path to mine are great to get me active about what I want to achieve! Other awesome sources are blogs or Facebook pages where people discuss topics near and dear to you. One more source on the net is to participate in a forum that appeals to you.
Off the net, actually meeting people helps tons. I am seriously lacking in this regard and its definitely something that I need to work on, because although I have connected with a few people on Facebook that live around here, I haven't actually met any of them in person. I sometimes become a little too wrapped up in what I am doing to accoplish my goals to make the effort of reaching out to others that could help me along. You could say that I'm very independent when it comes to accomplishing certain things and I make the mistake of thinking that I can accomplish it without any help whatsoever since I am struggling with more of my inner issues that don't really have anything to do with anyone else. When having other people with whom to talk to would be absolutely awesome to have, because as much as I love my current circle of friends, they aren't on the fruity path with me, other than ones who live half a world away.
So my new goal in this respect is to reach out more and make some fruity friends to share awesome stories and times with. I need to step out of this comfort zone as well. Shaking things up in that respect are going to do me a world of good!
