We can be the 20%!!

Here we are again.  Another year down and I began wondering ... why do we celebrate New Year's Day?

It's a holiday, we even get a day off work.  But isn't it just another date on the calendar?  Yet, we celebrate.  Why?  It's nobody's birthday, or at least nobody famous.  As far as I know, nothing particular was discovered on that day.  So what makes it so special?  Well ...

New Year's Day is about hope!

It's the chance to look at the past and empower us toward the future.  It's a chance to revisit a dream, envision the possibilities, maybe even realize the life we were meant to live.  New Year's Day allows us to look at where we were, where we are, and where we want to be.

But did you know that 4 out of 5 people will NOT stick to their New Year's resolutions.  In fact, a third will not make it to the end of January.  So that means nearly 80% will fail.  Not because they are a failure, but simply because they gave up.  So, that means, we have a choice.  We can either be the 80% or ...

We can be the 20%!!

What are your goals for this year?  Maybe you decide to keep going in the same direction and that is success.  You checked things out and realized you are exactly where you want to be.  Great ~ keep going!

Maybe you decide to make changes, realizing some things needed fine tuning.  That's okay too ~ keep going!

But for some of you, maybe, just maybe, you are ready for a complete change.  Imagine the possibilities.  We live in a time where we can do just about anything ... opportunities are endless.  Generally, the only one holding you back is you!  So make a commitment to get out of the way.  And then ~ keep going!

What are my plans, you ask?  Well ... I've definitely got some ideas in the works.  There's a lot floating around in my head, some definite and some not so definite.  But whatever they are, I know one thing ... I'll keep imagining and see what happens ... that is of course, as long as I put that imagination into action.

Whatever your plans for this year, make it a good one.  Do something crazy, wild, and unconventional.  Have the courage to step out of your comfort zone and be free.  Happy blogging everyone and here's to being the 20%!
