Happy New Day
For many the New Year signifies fresh hope and an opportunity to set new goals, its marked as a watershed moment where we can forget the lows of the previous year and look forward.
I have already been asked countless times what my New Year’s resolution will be, and I find it difficult to answer. Not because I have no goals, but because I set new goals often.
The act of making New Year’s resolutions once a year is a little outdated, we have been conditioned to believe that we must come up with a grand plan for our year ahead all at once. This mindset makes us overzealous with our ambitions and leads many to fail to achieve their goals. It is great to have a vision to aim for, but you don’t need to set out the detail on day one, and you certainly shouldn’t consider yourself a failure if you haven’t achieved your goal by the end of January!
Everyday is a New Day
I am an optimist, and I like to think that everyday offers a new chance to change or try something new. If you believe that anything can happen in just ONE DAY then you have countless opportunities to adjust your sails or set new goals. It is not a failure to change your goals along the way, our ability to react to the day to day influences can only increase our chances of success. This approach lies at the very heart of our ability to achieve and successfully manage change both in our personal and professional lives.
365 Days of Hope
“Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.” – Jonas Salk
So, if tomorrow doesn’t bring what you hope for, go to bed and wake up even more determined the next day.
Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and successful 2020.
