IT’S ALL ABOUT PURPOSE – YES, LIVING WITH PURPOSE:
“Trust thyself. Every heart vibrates to that iron string. Accept the place the Divine Providence has set for you; the society of your contemporaries, the connexion of events. Great men have always done so and have confided themselves childlike to the genius of their age, betraying their perception that the Eternal was stirring in their hearts, working through their hands, predominating in all their being. And we are now men and must accept in the highest mind the same transcendent destiny. And not pinched in a corner. Not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but redeemers and benefactors – pious aspirants to be noble clay under the Almighty effort, let us advance on chaos and the dark.” – R W Emerson
While New Year Resolutions can lead to defeat, beginning a new year is a terrific time to reflect on your life, where you would like to make improvements, and intentionally put in place some steps to make those things happen.
Your greatest ally when it comes to making changes of any kind, is making a plan. Whether it’s making a weekly menu plan, putting up your nutritional supplements ahead a week at a time, making budget and spending decisions, or adding an exercise routine to your schedule, making a plan will make all the difference when it comes to making those things happen.
Benefits of entering a new year:
While some decisions for change can be profound, instant, and life-changing, most are related to goals best achieved through the daily discipline. We always want the “instant” result, but this isn’t how it usually works.
Don’t pitch your disciplines just because you “fell off the wagon.” When you do, enjoy, and then just get back on!
