Did you accomplish all you planned last year? Did you meet or exceed your personal goals and/or expectations?
The new year brings new opportunity. We evaluate the last year, set goals for the new year, and start to gear ourselves up. Without proper motivation, and a realistic/attainable goal, most people start to make excuses, not just for what they did not accomplish, but for what we are afraid to try to accomplish next.
*Not enough resources? Be more creative. Pool your resources w/ others.
*Not enough creativity? Build space to find your creative core. Find your source of inspiration.
*Not enough time? Prioritize...find out what really matters. Make a plan.
*Blame others?: Take responcibility for your desires, your goals your actions. *The economy? If there is a will-there is a way. Innovate.
*Fearful, uncertain? Perfect time to team up with God.
Repeat behavior gets repeat results. Try something different. Try something new.
