“There are two mistakes one can make along the road
to truth – not going all the way, and not starting.”
At 12 am, January 1st, 2012, you made the transition from what was old, and entered into the season of new beginnings. Your life is about to change, and change for the better. However, the only prerequisite for this change is that you free yourself from last year’s failures and disappointments.
I know there must have been times when you thought this new season would never come, and yet it is here, with you being in a position to receive all the blessings associated with it. Today you have this amazing opportunity to turn your life around and live a life full of endless possibilities.
You might be weary from attending the school of hard knocks, but through our joint efforts, we will take this journey together, supporting each other along the way. I can’t say this enough, but you were never created to live an unfulfilled, miserable or unsuccessful life. Success is yours, happiness is yours, dreams realized is yours, peace of mind is yours. In essence all that is good and desirable is yours for the taking. You carry within you the pilot light of hope, and no matter how challenging life gets, the light within you refuses to die.
Even though we know all this, yet still we continue to suffer, and live below our God given potential.
As painful as the answer might be, the truth is we just don’t know how to use what we have to make our dreams come through. Our short comings haunts us, as we see others living a better life. We struggle because even with all of our education, no one ever taught us how to motivate ourselves, set goals, deal with adversity and defeats, build confidence or even how to do the things that we are afraid to do. We had to learns these things on our own through trials and errors. The fact that you have made it this far without having cultivated all the necessary skills needed to succeed in life and work is a testament of your courage and faith.
For the next 52 weeks you will continue to learn and discover life changing principles that will drastically improve your life should you choose to apply them. No one else can live your life for you, and unfortunately, no one can pay the price of achievement that only you alone have to pay.
As we move forward, take the time to prayerfully reflect upon your life. Without self-reflection, it will be almost impossible for you to learn and grow into your authentic and powerful-self. There is more of you waiting to unfold.
Positive Affirmation: Today I will look within myself without judgement or guilt. I will acknowledge where I am right now in my life, knowing that I will pay the price necessary to reach my full potential.
