Spring brings us Passover, Easter, Patriot’s Day, Memorial Day, Vietnam War Veterans’ Day……just to name a few. It is an opportunity to reflect on the past, start a new decade with a renewed sense of dedication and reach obtainable goals. This doesn’t mean having to fill up every inch of your calendar or overwhelming yourself with personal goals but rather focusing on a meaningful endeavor that is attainable.
BSM Central Mass Ch. 3 has been traveling down a long road of dedication to meet an attainable financial goal that puts us in a position to sponsor a NEADS service dog for a veteran. This goal is only achieved once every few years due to the labor intensive hours of fundraising. It forces us to plan, move into action and slowly see the light at the end of “goal tunnel.”
As with any goal, planning, action and adjustments along the road are necessary actions but if there is no deep-hearted commitment it will not come to fruition. Whether you are a current service member, going forward with a collective commitment, a veteran who provides support to those serving or who have served or a group such as BSM the end result is only as good as your ongoing commitment.
Start 2020 with an introspective look at what is going on in the community around you and make 2020 your year to reach the attainable goal.
In the words of Pablo Picasso……
Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.
