It’s a New Year – Now What?
As you get ready for work and sip your morning coffee, are you preparing to go “back to the old grind” just to pay your bills?
If so, it’s time for a change. After all, it can be miserable to live from paycheck to paycheck and watch every penny (I know. I’ve been there.).
Instead, why don’t you start taking action to make change happen? Life is too short to be unhappy and spend your days “waiting for retirement.” As Robert Schuller says:
“If it’s going to be, it’s up to me.”
And instead of being overwhelmed at all the time and effort you’ll need to make your dream-lifestyle a reality, start small.
For example, take five minutes today to write down what you would like to accomplish and how much you would like to make this year.
Tomorrow, create a plan-of-action, and write down action steps you can take to move closer to your dreams. (Maybe you need to do some research? Read a book? Study a new skill? Network with the right people? Update your website?) Then, follow your plan and finish a step each day.
It may take some time, and you’ll need some patience, but you will start to see change happen. You’ll move that much closer to your dreams.
So what are you waiting for? If you want things to change in your life, it’s up to you to make it happen. There is no magic pill or “free ride” for instant success. Get out there and live the life you want – It’s well worth the effort, and you can do it!
