Secrets of Success

Spark Team Check-Ins



I am motivated by encouragement from others, in addition to just feeling good about myself. I try to check in with my most active Spark Team when I'm feeling like I need a kick in the butt to stay on goal, or even if I'm feeling good and want praise. Community has helped me immensely!

More Information:

Reading about the progress of others helps me keep my own progress in focus, just the same as reading about someone else's "slacking" helps me realize I am human and that we all have off days.
