Every last week of December people all over the world start thinking about what it is that they want to do to better themselves. We all know the very popular resolutions, “Go to the gym and get in shape”, “Do better in school”, “Not waste so much money”, “Find someone I really love”, “Be a better person and give more”, the list goes on and on. That is one of the reasons why I love New Years so much like I have said in another one of my blogs before, we all have so much motivation to do better and be better. The gyms are packed, the classroom is full of people eager to learn the material, you’re using your mobile phone to manage all your finances. Man, if we had a world filled with people like this all the time it would be a better world wouldn’t it?
The sad part is that it never actually stays like that. There is a small percentage of people who follow at least a couple of the things they set their minds to and even a smaller percentage of people who follow every resolution that they made for New years. The gyms aren’t as packed now, Linda got herself three pairs of new shoes when she knows very well that her rent is due next week, Bob isn’t motivated to do well in school anymore, there’s too many tests and he just wants the semester to be over with already. Now the question is, are you one of those people who stopped trying mid March? Don’t be!
Everyone has those moments when life seems to get the best of them and they feel like they don’t have the time to do the things they set their mind to but don’t fool yourself, you have all the power in the world to keep on going! Just imagine that finish line. Imagine how good you’re going to feel if you accomplished everything that you said you wanted to accomplish throughout the year. You are going to feel like a brand new person. Just imagine that flat belly and those abs coming in, imagine the feeling of freedom and accomplishment Summer will bring if you earned straight A’s and had a 4.0 semester, imagine smiling to yourself every time you think back to all those people in need that you helped. You can do it, no one is going to stop you, but you! You are your best cheerleader and the destiny of your life is in your hands. Go out and be the person that you want to be. Life is too short to think back on the life you had and regret that it wasn’t the life you could have made it. Be the best version of yourself and your dreams will follow.
