“When you put positive energy and productive effort into the world it will come back to you. Occasionally in ways you might not immediately understand and on a time frame you didn’t expect. Look. Listen. Learn. Stay open. Your destiny is awaiting you.”

~Jillian Michaels

So often we get discouraged when things don’t go as we’d like.  Even when you make efforts, take action, and focus on your strengths, you may not achieve your goal.   Don’t despair!  The key is to ensure your goals and their attendant actions are aligned with your core values.  When they are, it is only a matter of time until you receive dividends from your efforts.  Persistence will be your ally as you move toward your eventual rewards.
