As we segue from an old year to a new one, it’s a great time for new beginnings. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to beat yourself up for the last year…
Everything that took place: the good, the bad and the ugly, served a purpose for you.
Yes the triumphs and victories are great. But remember they come from the lessons we learned from the things that didn’t work out along the way. The opposite of success is not failure. It is mediocrity. Failure is part of the success process. The challenges you face are the stepping-stones that build character, develop skills and correct courses. So try this belief on for size…
If you didn’t have a huge failure in 2010, maybe you’re not thinking big enough! And if you did try something big and it didn’t work out – congratulations! You’ve got guts, you dream, and are becoming a better you.
So seal off 2010 with gratitude, and step forward into 2011 with faith. Get ready to face some more challenges, make some more mistakes, and have some more failures. Because as long as you’re willing to learn from them, they will lead you to even greater success.
You have a wonderful, blank white canvas in front of you, waiting for you to paint the scene. If you have it, today would be a great time to re-read my Accept Your Abundance book, or some of the other books in the series. Because it’s not really about Happy New Year, as it is about Happy New You.
And it gets to start today. Ain’t it great!
