We resolve. We forget. We resolve. We forget.
For as long as people have been celebrating new years, they have been following this same pattern. They make large goals for the year ahead, and then as the exhaustion and hangover dissipate on the morning of January 2nd, the frenetic pace of life returns and, the resolutions of the week before are long forgotten.
If your journey is to the east and you travel south, you will never arrive at your destination.
We talk about goals of eating better, exercise, deep relationships, and overall discipline, and then we start are year with excessive eating and inebriation, meaningless kisses, and excessive sleeping and time wasting. Then as a result of our less than stellar choices, we reinforce the negative and make the possibility of achieving our goals all the more challenging.
As you live your moments, so you live your days, week, months, years and LIFE.
Making massive changes in you year and life can be overwhelming, intimidating and debilitating. To change a moment is manageable almost easy. Taking control of those moments will lead to massive life change.
Setting the stage for tomorrows performance.
You have some goals for this year. What is the goal that you want to work on? What is the process, the steps involved to reach that goal. When the stage crew sets the stage for a performance they put one piece, work on one detail at a time. Each piece/detail is not the set, the set is a result and combination of all the pieces.
A goal is not some thing we do, it is something we achieve, and we achieve it through taking the proper steps (one at a time) and the combination of those steps will result in the achievement of your goals.
A new way to enter 2010
Don’t repeat the same process that you have been doing all these years and expect different results. For tonight just enjoy yourself (responsibly).
Tomorrow can be the beginning of your finest year. To achieve that you must begin with thinking. Nothing heavy mind you. Partying all night and deep thought don’t really go hand in hand.
For starters just take some time on January 1st to ask your self some thoughtful questions.
What was great about me in 2009?
What strengths did I see in my self?
How did these great moments enhance my life?
What could I do different in 2010 to make my life even better? (answer in the positive)
How would it improve my life?
You’ll know that all these questions focus on the positive. Positive Focus. Positive State of Mind. Positive Outcomes.
Sun Set. Sun Rise
A year will end and a new year will arrive, you have no controll over this. How you step into the year is in the sphere of your control.
Step forward, step with purpose, step with strength. Be Great.
Enjoy Your Success In 2010
