In the end, success is a mindset. You set the standards for you. Don’t get too far ahead of yourself, and don’t expect to have everything figured out. Do your best today, and success will come tomorrow. One step may seem insignificant today. Many small steps have the power to change tomorrow. Live in the moment, vision in sight. Keep your feet on the ground, yet reach for the sky.
Experience is a great teacher, but take caution with a pattern of thinking centered around perfect timing. Such a mindset will set you on a path of going in circles. Fear of making a mistake or not being ready may stop you from moving forward altogether. If you wait to feel 100% ready or until circumstances are perfect, the right moment will never come. Have a big vision, but don't just dream. Focus on what you can do today. The plan will unfold as you move forward. If faithful in the small things, little by little you'll build the courage to step into the big things.
What do you do when circumstances are against you? Do you fold under pressure or get back up and stand tall. Life throws curveballs. Learn to handle them with grace. If able to adapt and adjust, you’ll always stay in the game. It can be a challenge to go against the grain. But when life pushes you down, take a stand. Never lower your standards to fit in. Always raise the bar, and you’ll stand out.
Dreams and goals are more tangible when written down. When thoughts are put on paper, you're more likely to believe them and stay strong. When you read what you’ve written, you speak it into reality. Still, nothing happens without action. Resolve to do something. Have a big vision, but don’t just dream. Focus on what you can do today. In conclusion, write the vision down. Keep it in sight. Speak it into reality. Turn words into action.
This year, resolve to be the best version of you. While you may want to add some goals, it may not be necessary to change what you do. You may just need to change your perspective. If you’ve committed to starting the new year with a new you, just start by being true to yourself. Confidence is key. What you think about yourself becomes your reality. Believe that you can and you will. Expect great things to happen. Walk in that belief. What once felt impossible will feel within reach.
