Out with the old and in with the new wishing you a Happy New Year.
A new year has arrived, 2012 is here.
It’s that time of year when we make New Year resolutions and set our goals for the year.
One of my favourite anecdotes about goal setting uses the well known tale of Alice in Wonderland’ to illustrate the importance of having a defined direction in life.
One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.
‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
His response was a question, ‘Where do you want to go?’
‘I do not know’ Alice answered.
‘Then’ said the cat, ‘It doesn’t matter.’
If you do not know where you are going in 2012, you will have no idea of where you will end up. More importantly, you may end up somewhere you do not want to be.
The reason most people never reach their goals is that they do not define them, or seriously consider them as believable or achievable.
Write down your goals for 2012. Make a plan to achieve them, take action and commit to making them a reality.
Written goals have a way of transforming wishes into wants, can’ts into cans, dreams into plans and plans into reality.
Yes you can – 2012 is your year, a year when you will look fear in the eye and keep on striving – you will step on doubt and worry and keeping moving, a year where the only limits to what you will achieve will be your own imagination.
Greatness can be yours in 2012, with defined goals, a plan and unwavering belief, 2012 will be the one of the best years of your life.
Wishing you and your family all the best for 2012.
