As the first sun rises for 2016 it gives new hope that this year will be different, this year will be the one where we follow our dreams, keep our resolutions and live happily ever after.
But the year alone won’t do that. In All the fuss, fireworks and frivolity of NYE, remember nothing changed – unless you do. No problems miraculously went away, no weight miraculously disappeared from your hips and unless you had the winning power ball ticket (which we did not) your bank account is unlikely to look any better today than your head feels.
The stroke of midnight does not in itself Change anything more than the calendar on your wall. But you do still have the chance to choose a fresh start, a different decision and change how You do things differently this year.
This year will probably be filled with as many challenges as last year, maybe even more. How you handle them is what can change.
This year will likely fly by even faster – it is up to you to make the most of the moments in it.
If you do the same things this year as you did last year then don’t kid yourself by expecting different results – you’re only setting yourself up to fail.
If you truly want this year to be different – then change what you’re putting into it. Change your thinking, change your behaviours and your results will have to change.
Whatever action you take today, on January 1st, is the only real commitment you’ve made to yourself to change your year.
If you did nothing new then….maybe do something different tomorrow.
Change is by choice, so this year be the change you want to see in the world and enjoy the journey. Remember, You can’t appreciate the highs til you know the lows, the contrast is where the joy is found.
