It’s a new year, now what?
January 9, 2016
It’s a new year and you keep hearing questions about your resolutions or about what you want to do differently. You’ve heard this over and over ad nauseam… So I’d like to change it up a bit.
What does the start of a new year have to do with changing your life? Why should you set goals or create your visions at that time? Why does January 1 have that kind of power? Who cares if you take control of your life on January 1st or June 15th or November 30th?
The best time to take control of your life is always NOW. You should be thinking about your future, your vision for your career, and your goals for your life ANYTIME it’s convenient for you to do so. That means if you realize that you’re not happy with something in your life, take control and do something about it. Not on January 1, when you think you can get around to it, NOW.
Well, what are you waiting for? Do you love your career or is it just a job? Is it some place you go 5 days a week in order to get a check to pay the bills? Is that the type of job you want for your future?
How about your daily life? Are you happy where you are right now? Are you living the way you’d like with the people you’d like to be with? It’s been said before and I’ll say it again: like attracts like. That means if you find yourself surrounded by sad, depressed people, you’re probably like that too. Smile more, laugh more, figure out what you enjoy and go do that. Then check out the view and see if the people you’ve been hanging out with have changed too or if you’re hanging out with new people.
You are in control of your life and can change it whenever, wherever you’d like.
If you can’t see how to do what you’d like in your life or career, call me. I can be your accountability partner to help you develop a career plan and then keep you on track so you realize the successes you were meant to achieve.
What does your tomorrow look like?
