Recently I was reading an inspirational book that talked about how people can go on for the rest of their lives doing what others tell them to do, thinking the way others want them to think and being what someone else wants them to be. When I thought about this, it made me really take pause and be thankful that I have never been that type of person. Pretty much, I’ve done the things in life that I have always wanted to do. Sure, I’ve made mistakes along the way. And there have been plenty of times that I wished that I might have done something different. But the reality is, I made my own decisions and I can’t blame anyone for my wrong choices.
In this New Year of 2016 what decisions have you made to do things differently? January is almost over and I’m sure many of us have had the best intentions of starting the year off with a new attitude, new goals or just doing something we’ve never done before. Some of us are on track and others have gotten off course before they’ve even started!
The good thing is, you can start over at anytime. It’s your choice and more importantly, it’s your life. The great thing about life is that the longer you live, the more you can evolve. Not sure where to begin? Just start making a plan. Write down the things you want to accomplish and then work towards making it happen. If you need some more guidance, check out the book Working on Your Now, a practical approach for how to get started when you don’t know where to begin.
