Head In Bold

I personally love this quote by Les Brown and it never rings more true than at the closing of a year and the beginning of a new one. In the weeks to come we'll begin to (hopefully) hear resolutions and goals shared by our family and friends for the New Year. Some may even be taking huge leaps of faith on some grand ideas that could leave you feeling stagnant but don't be discouraged...even slow progress counts as progress.

Keep Your Nose To Your Own Road

The best thing to do is to keep your nose to the road that you are traveling. Take time to really do some introspecting to figure what you need to work on or would like to work on for the new year. Social Media has made it so easy for us to get caught up in the lives of others often causing us to feel like we aren't where we should be in our own lives. A sure fire way to kick that feeling is to set goals and intentions for yourself. If you haven't set or brainstormed any goals or resolutions, today is the day! You don't have to necessarily become President but something as small as getting more exercise or eating less red meat is a start.

Be Bold

Even just declaring that "this year is my year" and believing it with all your might raises your vibrations (or spirits, as some say) and sets you up for blessings. I say set some intentions and make them big and bold! I attended a seminar one year on the importance of living the life you want. The speaker instructed us to introspect and think about one great thing that we wanted to accomplish in life and then make 3 lists - they read: 3 days, 3 weeks, & 3 years; each with 3 things to be accomplished within that time to move us closer to that goal. I tried it and have used it from time to time when moving towards those goals that trigger fight or flight, or that run for the hills feeling.

Give Her A Black Eye

DON'T NEGLECT SETTING GOALS OUT OF FEAR!!! (Yes, I'm screaming here) Fearing that we won't or can't accomplish something, fearing that we'll hate ourselves after we fail to accomplish something, or fearing what other people will say is no way to live. It is the exactly opposite of being fruitful. Fear is the greatest weapon used against us and sadly, it's used against us by our own minds. It's been said that "your greatest enemy is that person staring back at you from the mirror". This year, shoot for the moon and give that scary chick the black eye she deserves.

Be Fruitful,
