Happy New Year! I am excited about 2009 and what it will bring to us all. I am declaring and believing that this will be OUR BEST YEAR YET!!!!! I am excited about what awaits us in this New Year but I am also excited about what we will become in this New Year.
We stand on the verge of a new president and new administration. We stand at a time when there is great hope and optimism and it is up to us to make the most of this moment and take advantage of all the opportunities that are available to us. Yet, where there are opportunities there will also be challenges; and I pray that we will not only be fit and able to meet those challenges but also conquer them and move to greater levels of success.
Jim Rhone says, “Don’t wish that the problem were smaller, wish that you were bigger!” I want you to grow and stretch this year beyond what you think you want to. It’s possible. Try this exercise. Stand up, and turn your body as far as you absolutely can …to the right. (Stop. Get up. Do it now…I’ll wait for you!) Now that you have gone as far as you absolutely can to the right, Do it again and this time try to go even further. (I’ll wait again… for you; I’m willing to wait all day☺). Did you notice how much further you went when you pushed it? I am saying to you that the same is true for your goals and dreams. That said, here is some homework for you.
Imagine you went to the doctor today and the doctor told you that you have a rare illness, which guaranteed that a year from now you would be dead! BUT, it also guarantees that anything you attempt, anything you try, you will achieve!
What 10 things would you attempt if you knew you could not fail? I want you to write them down on a piece of paper. I want you to think as big as you can and dream as big as you can. Go as far as you can, and once you get there you will see that you can go even farther!
Remember to do your homework. This is going to be an incredible year for us all, so let’s get up, get dreaming, get going, get stretching and get to really living life at another level! I will be back to you soon, for we have more work to do to prepare to take it to another level in 2009. God Bless!
