November is here and it is time to prepare for the holidays. This is a great time to think about your goals for next year. Instead of making a resolution on New Year's Eve for 2015, design a strategic plan for your life now.
Many people have dreams and are afraid to take the first step. Common excuses are: "I'm too old, it's too late, I'm scared I'm going to fail, what if it's not going to work, etc." Please understand, if you allow these things to take over your mind, you will never fulfill your dream.
Dreams do not have deadlines! It's never too late! When I was teaching high school and college students, I would tell them to dream big! Envision yourself doing what you like and create dream boards to keep the images in front of you. Also, pray and ask God to bless you and give you the tools to make it a reality.
It is not a good idea to verbalize your dreams to everyone. Many people will not be encouraging or understand. And, if the person is very influential in your life, their "negative"opinion can possibly make you doubt yourself. Therefore, it is important to surround yourself with people who think outside the box.
Believe or not, your environment dictates a large percentage of your life's outcome. Who are you socializing with on a regular basis? Is your mate/spouse a negative person? Are your family members encouraging you? Do your friends support your endeavors?
Think about the people in the "inner circle" of your life and ask yourself these questions. Before entering next year, take a long look at your life and ask yourself, "Why haven't I fulfilled my dream?" When you realize the answer, it will be time to hit the delete button and remove some people from your life.
End 2014 with closure and excitement about 2015! Have a wonderful holiday season......peace and blessings!
Create a Better Day!
