This is a new year. I know you know that already, but I said it anyway. So what are you going to do about that? Lash me? No way… Just humble yourself a little and read on…
This new year has come just like any other one before it. And it is already rolling away just like the ones before it had done. What you make out of it is your choice.
Last year, you had some plans, and made some new resolutions. How far did you go with them? How far did you run with those plans?
Are the plans still with you or they have left you? Or is it you that have left your plans and resolutions?
Either ways, last year is gone. This year is your chance to start again.
You are free to open a new chapter or continue from where you left-off earlier. Again the choice is yours.
It is not time to throw in the towel…
But if you want a different result, be sure to do things differently from the ways you have been doing them.
Remember Albert Einstein’s classic definition of insanity: “doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” You don’t want that to be your story this year!
Your goals are still within reach if you strongly set your mind on them. In case you have not made any plans at all for the new year, you can do that right away. Don’t say it is too late to plan. No, it is not!
Set your goals. Work out the strategies to achieve them.
The point is this: have an idea of what you want to achieve this year and write out what you will need to do to achieve them. And then get to work. Nothing will work until you work at them.
“If you don’t have any plans, it means you have planned to fail.” That’s not a new statement to you. But why have you been falling victim of its’ implication every time?
Forget about the previous years and let this year be different. Truly, this year can be remarkably different for you if you commit to doing things differently.
There are many areas of your life that you can do things differently. In your thought-life for instance. Stop the “stinking thinking” that has bedeviled you all these years. Think empowering thoughts this new year…
If you don’t want to end up the same way you ended up last year and the year before, stop thinking the same way you thought last year and the year before. You know what they say, “To change your life, change your thinking.”
That’s right! The outward change you desire has to start from within you first. Once that change revolution starts from within you, it is a matter of time, it will manifest around you.
Learn new things. Unlearn somethings. Relearn some others. Grow.
Knock on more doors than you did in the year before. Reach out to other people. Don’t be a recluse.
You know this is a new year. Don’t let it roll by just like that. By all means, make the most of it.
