I received an email today from someone who has inspired me with a great idea. It may or may not be her own original, but y’know – I don’t care. I’m going to try it, and promote it, anyway!
Instead of having a ‘New Years Resolution’ list of things I want to achieve, I’m going to concentrate on how to achieve those goals I’d otherwise have written down.
Here’s a starting point:
Your thoughts become your words
Your words become your behaviour
Your behaviour becomes your habits
Your habits become your values
Your values become your destiny
– Mahatma Gandhi
So there’s my challenge. Not just ‘think positive’ – I already do a lot of that. But speak that way too, and act it. Create some new habits.
“Getting better every day” may be a cliche, but cliches only become so by repetition, and repetition doesn’t necessarily mean something isn’t true.
I will try to do my best, and the more I do it, the better that ‘best’ will become. And that, my friends, sounds like the road to success.
Wherever your roads lead you in 2017, may you travel them with courage. We can’t always control our destination but we can control the way we carry ourselves in getting there.
