A New Year, A New Beginning

~ Joyce Fields

 

The beginning of a new year is typically seen as another chance to “get it right” or “do it better.”

If you do the same things in 2012 as you did in 2011, you are almost guaranteed to get the same results.  Now, if you are happy with what you did and got in 2011, congratulations and more power to you.  Keep up the good work!

On the other hand, if you are not happy with what you did or got in 2011, it would be wise to make some drastic, meaningful changes for 2012.  Change the way you look at, listen to, and think about people and situations.  Don’t wear rose-colored glasses; see the picture for what it truly is.  If it can’t stand the challenge, then, it can’t stand.

If you’re not happy with settling for less, don’t settle for less.  If your standards are not being met, either lower your standards or move to different people/situations where your standards will be met.

Grab a piece of paper and write down what you’re going to change and how you’re going to change it.  Refer to it often and keep track of your progress.

Tell someone you trust about what you’re going to change and ask them to help you monitor your progress.  Consult with them on a regular basis.

After about three weeks of consistent, positive change, you should notice that a new habit, a new behavior is taking shape.

It’s a contest (or battle) between you and you—so, obviously, YOU are going to win!!

    I agree with you. If you keep doing the same things in 2012, that you did in 2011, you will get the same results. If you want better, be better and do better.
