“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” -Tony Robbins
Howdy! So, I know a lot of people are very anti-new year’s resolutions for one reason or another.
I used to be a cynic, myself, but I’ve had a change of heart, recently. Sure, sometimes people set unrealistic resolutions of which they don’t really care to see through. Sure, many people give up on them by late March, and have slipped into their old ways.
But…so? Who am I to discourage anyone from trying? I’ve realized that I, generally, stick to my New Year’s resolutions. Granted, they are usually just greater developments of things I am already working on. Just the same, I set new goals at the beginning of the year to kind of create a set of milestones that I’d like to hit throughout the year. Mind you, I am a very consistent goal setter. I set goals several times throughout the year. I also don’t make my goals too extravagant. Sometimes, I set a goal and don’t reach it. There are a couple that come to mind as I write, but I try. At least I try.
I’ve been able to have some wonderful experiences in 2012. If anything, I’ve grown bolder in my faith. Impossible really means nothing to me at this point.
There is no time like the present. So, no one should feel like they have to wait for the start of a new year to start making progressive changes in life. However, there’s something so refreshing about a new year. Even though you may still be dealing with the consequences of decisions you’ve made in previous years, it is still a great time to start anew. Almost like a clean slate.
So what are some of the things you hope to change in 2013?
I know that I have started to change my thinking. I’ve realized how important your mind and your mouth are. That’s what I want to focus on in 2013.
1. Don’t degrade others. We put people in boxes to make ourselves feel better. I don’t want to see prejudices, or formalities when I look at a person. I just want to see a unique, divinely designed individual, who’s just as valuable to this earth as the next. I don’t want to see categories, I want to see people.
2. No negative talk regarding self or others.
3. Give 100% everyday.
And that’s it!
Happy New Year,
