- Face your fears.
That’s how you conquer them. Don’t dismiss them; face them.
- You don’t have to repeat last year
You don’t have to keep doing what you’ve been doing the last years if it’s not yielding the benefits you want. Pick a new destination and go that way. Use your willpower to start the process. Clean up the errors. Invest it now in the next year. Watch it make the difference.
- Admit your mistakes.
“I’m sorry.” Those words could start a whole new relationship. They could start two people going in a whole new direction. Admit your mistakes to yourself. But it doesn’t hurt you to sit down and have a conversation with yourself and say, there’s no use kidding myself. Here’s where I really am.
- Set some higher goals
Start the process. Reach for some higher purpose. Go for something beyond what you thought you could do.
- Believe in yourself.
You’ve got to believe in the possibilities. You’ve got to believe that tomorrow can be better than today. Believe in yourself. There isn’t a skill you can’t learn; there isn’t a discipline you can’t try; there isn’t a class you can’t take; there isn’t a book you couldn’t read.
- Ask for wisdom.
Ask for wisdom that creates answers. Ask for wisdom to deal with the challenges for today and tomorrow. Don’t wish it was easier; wish you were better.
- Invest more of you in whatever you do
You might as well turn it up a notch or two. Be a little stronger; be a little wiser. Step up your vitality contribution. Put everything you’ve got into everything you do and then ask for more vitality, more strength and more vigor, more heart and more soul.
- Find your place.
If you just work at a job, find the best place you can serve well, and sure enough they’ll ask you to occupy a better place. Keep doing a job well; do the very best you can. That’s your best way out.
