Thoughts for a New Year

(borrowed from Express Tire Inc.)

Each New Year many of us think about ways to improve our lives. It’s like pruning a tree to make it grow bigger and stronger. The pruning is painful the growth is tremendous.

Be grown-up and take responsibility for yourself. Don’t let others steal your dreams. Set goals and hold yourself accountable. Educate yourself, read books that are uplifting, nurture your spirit with positive influences.

Live healthy, your body and brain need exercise. Eating right and exercising give you more energy so that you can persevere in reaching your goals.

Deal with truth in your life so that you can make better choices and decisions. When getting advice, consider the source. Learn from your mistakes. Be willing to forgive yourself and others. Carrying around anger, hatred, or disappointment is toxic to your spirit. You aren’t hurting others when you hold in hatred or anger you hurt yourself.

Quit using no actions alibi, we are guilty from time to time of using convenient alibis for not persevering to our goals. Be honest recognize the alibi for what it is and not make alibis a way of life.

Identify counter productive habits or thoughts you would like to discontinue then dump them. Focus on what you can do, not what you cannot do.

Don’t let others bring you down. Remember you can’t change anyone except yourself and that life always rewards positive actions. Invest in yourself, you are your best investment. Surround yourself with others that are positive and never give up.

We can’t avoid problems we all have them. How and when we deal with them will determine your success and happiness. Keep your dreams real. Stand up and be accountable. Make your life grow. Work on it each and every day. It’s easy to fall in the feels good if I do this mode. (Drinking, doing drugs, gambling, etc)

That is why perseverance is the common denominator for success. So powerful is perseverance that failure cannot exist in its presence.

Have a great 2007!
