Being “average” or just like everyone else may seem right, but now is the time to lead an extraordinary life. It is essential to avoid making excuses such as “I am too busy,” “I am too sick,” or “It’s just too much trouble.” To be extraordinary, you need to reframe excuses into statements such as “I am never too busy to fulfill my goals,” “I will support and love myself” and “Anything worth having is worth pursuing!” Ultimately, your perseverance will be the most important part. http://www.successthang.com/attitude/the-challenge-of-stepping-out-and-being-extraordinary/

A life with chronic pain is filled with ongoing struggles, and it’s very important to set SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.  When setting these goals, ask the following: Who is involved? What do I want to accomplish? Where will it take place? When will it occur? Why am I doing this?  Finally, establish deadlines for these goals and ensure you adhere to them. http://www.successthang.com/life-goals/why-its-important-to-have-smart-goals/
