*Goodwill Hunting

When you have finished the movie, return to today's steps and tell us what you thought about it, and then complete Steps 2-4.

Think about the main character in the movie you watched.

What did they have to overcome to gain their victory?

Step 4

What is one act you can do today to move closer to one of your goals?

Keep it simple and uplifting. It could easily be the action you listed in Day 7 (yesterday).

Step 5

Here's a clue about doing the hard thing. When you tell somebody what you're going to do, the chances of you're doing it increase dramatically.

Are you willing to tell one trusted friend today what step you're taking toward your goal?
