“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” ― Carl Bard
How was your last year?
For most people, about this time of the year, thinking about last year is pretty much the focal point of their inner reflections.
What will make next year different?
Only 2 things can or ever will make a difference in your life, its outcomes and your achievements from year to year:
- The things you read, study and take into your heart and mind
- The people you meet and allow to have an effect on you
(Paraphrased from Charlie Tremendous Jones)
What Charlie meant was that unless we do something different, such as allow ourselves to learn something new so we can do something new, only then can something different happen to us! If you are riding on rails like a tram, the destination is already pre-arranged! #Next year will be the same!
What can you do to ensure that positive change happens next year?
I have two recommendations only; two blog posts for you to read at these links, and then to act upon:
Why bother with Self Development for Next Year?
If you didn’t like what last year brought, it’s time to make some changes. For things to change outside, first they need to change INSIDE! To HAVE something different, we need to BECOME something different!
Why systemize Self Development for Next Year?
Systems work! You think you are a free spirit, but you are totally systemized in everything that works perfectly.
You eat something, it goes into your digestive system.
You think, choose to move a muscle, and it works through your nervous system.
You book a flight or a hotel room, it goes into the reservations system.
You post a letter, it goes into the postal system… Hey, not EVERY system is perfect every time, but you get the idea – systems work, because they deliver a result, pretty much every time. If you realise you need some personal development, when you systemize it, you’ll find it works better too. That can eliminate the ‘losing track’ or ‘forgetting to do it’ problems most people find when working on their personal development.
Once you have read these two blogs, don’t just sit there – take action! Plug into a ready-made system that is waiting to help you make the changes you want in your life. Dial them in and turn up in your life each day – the system will take care of it from there.
It needn’t be hard work. After all, you were going to wake up and have a day each morning, weren’t you? This will just make it flow better and give you something to be pleased with at the end of each day, and put a spring in your step at the start of each day.
My wish is that you DO have a much better next year. This is how you can do it!
If you feel this has been valuable to you, please share or reblog it for others to enjoy and gain from also. Everyone deserves the chance to make their next year better than their last!
Til next time, fair winds and full sails!
