When I was a kid my neighbor had this sweet 10 speed racing bike. I would see her out riding it and told myself one day I would own a bike like that. A few months later I saw her bike was for sale...only problem was it was $80 and at 12 years old that might as well have been $1,000.
That evening I talked to my dad and he helped me come up with a plan on how I could earn the money to purchase that bike. I raked leaves, cleaned toilets, helped mom with dinner. My parents continued to encourage me to find ways to make a few more dollars and each time I completed a chore I was that much closer to owning that beautiful bike. There were days I didn't feel like doing chores as well as days I thought I would never own that bike. I would see a $40 bike in the store and think maybe that is "good enough." It took me the entire summer to earn enough money but I will never forget the day I walked up to my neighbors house with cash in hand. She rolled the bike out of her garage and with a huge grin I rode away on my very own 10 speed!! VICTORY!!
We all have goals. I believe the reason we don't reach them is not because of a lack of desire or even dedication. I think we have a hard time reaching them because we don't like to admit we need help. I wanted that bike SO badly but I needed my parents help to earn money and stay focused on the days the task seemed overwhelming.
