The holidays are over and we are on the eve of the first full week of 2015. Are you ready to start accomplishing your goals for the new year? Are you open to something new happening next in your life as you turn the page on the book of your life?
There are three basic ideas that I like to keep in mind as I start something new. I would like to share those with you as it might relate to the goals and such you have set for the year.
The first thing is that no matter what you encounter (in terms of challenges or barriers or unexpected), it can be simplified. Everything can be broken down to the very basics of it, and sometimes that is how I manage it the best. One piece, one part at a time.
The second is that no matter what you have a choice. If you have set a goal and decide that isn’t at all what you really want, then you can make a different choice.
Lastly, since I seem to be working in three’s lately, is that no matter how many times you have tried to accomplish this same goal or achieve whatever you have set for yourself is moot. What you did in the past is moot because this is not then. This is now, and you do have the power to do it (albeit differently from having learned from those past experiences).
It is inherently exciting to start a new year because it is fresh and new, so bring as little of the past into that newness as you can and embrace the opportunities, challenges and new memories to come!
