"The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul" - G.K. Chesterton
It is said that to truly give yourself the best chance of success in achieving the new year's destination, you should include these two caveats:
1. Write it down. There seems to be a powerful transference of proactive intent as the verbal word transcends to the written word. Print it. Post it. Place copies where YOU can see them regularly (Consider posting where you can see it in the morning - bathroom, kitchen, clothes closet, steering wheel - or better yet, E-all of the above). Reinforcement is the key to success.
"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves". - Bill Vaughan
2. Tell others. This will keep you honest. There is a greater incentive to keep up with your goals to also keep your word. Your character is riding on keeping to the task you set out for yourself.
"Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go." ~ Brooks Atkinson
Enjoy - It is never too late for any of us to be the people we were meant to be.
1/1/11: Tomorrow's sunrise will begin a new day as well as a new year - may all your goals be realized and that you successfully make TIME for all that is truly meaningful in your life. Happy New Year!
