Time To Re-Set

12 Jan

The beginning of a new year can be an exciting time. We may review the last year and think about everything we’ve accomplished and the things we didn’t get done, and then decide what we want to do now. There’s a brand new calendar and we can set any goal or make any resolutions we like. Making a resolution means we absolutely and definitely resolve to do something. We are firm in our decision and nothing will move us from it. When there’s something we really want to accomplish we may be determined to get it done, but life isn’t like a story book where every complication that comes is easily solved and we can continue forward unscathed. Crap happens and it happens to us all. Unexpected developments come up, people get in our way, something blocks us from moving forward, and a million other snags might happen. Making a resolution looks good on paper, and if everything falls into place the way we plan, we may well reach success, but there’s no guarantee that will happen. We may decide that no matter what happens, no matter what gets in the way, no matter what we have to sacrifice, we’re going to succeed, but if we do that, the price we must pay may be great. We don’t need an all or nothing decision to make any changes we desire. We can set a goal and then take the first step toward making it ours. Then we can take the next step. If something gets in the way, we can go around it by modifying our plan. If we’re flexible and able to adjust as our situation changes, we have a greater chance of reaching success. We can do anything we desire but we can’t do everything all at once. By moving ahead with patience, logic and wisdom, we will reach our goals and find great satisfaction and happiness.

Life is uncertain and we never know what will happen next, but no matter what comes, we are in control of the decisions we make. If we set a goal last year that we didn’t achieve and we still want it, we can re-set it and begin again. There is no time limit for success and sometimes it takes longer than we planned. Each step forward will get us closer to the goal, and even if we don’t get all the way to the destination, we can take everything we’ve learned so far to help us continue forward.

Change is constant and nothing is written in stone, and sometimes our plans go up in smoke. We change, the situation changes, people come and go and everything may be completely different than when we started. What we wanted last year may have been perfect for where we were, but no longer fits where we want to go. We never have to continue toward any goal we no longer desire. Our lives are ours to design, and we can do anything we want and go anywhere we desire. It’s all there for us, and we will prevail.

Today if you didn’t get to your goal last year and still want to achieve it, create a new plan and take the first step forward. The past never predicts the future, and you have everything you need to succeed. Be confident and sure. You are amazing and smart, and nothing is out of reach. Trust yourself and start again. Every success is possible and you will make them yours.
