“Sometimes it takes a really good fall to know where you stand”
Filled with the joy of another new year, most of us are graced with confidence and hope that the year is going to be a fruitful one. Many are overwhelmed with expectations of great and wonderful things in all areas of their lives, for example relationships, families, business, promotion, education and businesses. This is the time when millions are taking new resolutions and promises hoping for victory and success.
The past year has been challenging for many of us, as individuals and even as a globe. However looking past 2016, we have to agree that the only way to go from here is up, so gear up! When I talk of gearing up, I mean rising up better than you were yesterday.
I have had quite a few interactions and many are afraid to set goals for the year in fear of getting disappointed incase they fail to achieve their goals.
Allow me to ask, if we stayed focused on our failures in life, would there be any successful individuals, businesses, organizations and so on? The wise ones would always change direction to reach their goals when obstacles arise other than changing the decision to get there.Life is a matter of falling off one staircase and climbing on to two more! Don’t stay down because you fell off! Just like a child who rides a bicycle, they fall off quite a lot of times but that never stops them from getting back on and riding on, which eventually brings them to the learning point.
So with inspiration from some of our previous posts, we would love to usher in the new year by letting you know that with hard work, persistence, courage, passion and our favorite Positivity, you can write up your resolutions and watch them all get achieved.
To those who are discouraged to face the New Year, based on the past year or anything else, it’s time to rise up and start riding on. Just like Jesse Jackson says, `if you fall behind, run faster. Never give up, never surrender, and rise up against the odds`.
Make your life what you want it to be!
