Happy 2017 | Golda SmithIt’s Time to Believe Again

 
Here we are…again. The beginning of another day and the end of another year. If you were to sum up 2016 in one word what would it be? Adventurous, boring, tragic, comedic, powerful, or some other word?
 
Think back to January 1, 2016 and all the things you desired to accomplish. If you achieved even half of those things, congratulations. However, if thinking about this past year makes you want to forget then it’s time to have a serious look at what did not work for you.
 
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
Were your goals realistic?
Did you have a time stamp on accomplishing your goals?
Were your goals broken down into bite size actionable steps?
Did you believe in your ability to accomplish your goals?
 
Perhaps the biggest question…
Where they your goals to begin with or did they belong to someone else?
 
If you want to accomplish something new, you must be willing to be honest with yourself and get comfortable being uncomfortable. Of course that will require facing your fears and embracing the very things we seek to change while doing the necessary work.
 
Yes, my friends, it’s time to press through what’s pressing you! Every day is a gift, one where you get to begin again, a “do over”. No matter what has happened- no matter what has not worked out in the past, it is never too late to begin again.
 
You know that thing you gave up believing for? It’s time to believe again. It’s time to commit to doing the work. It’s time to live your best life. So, what will you accomplish in the coming year? I want to hear from you. Leave a comment and know that it would be my honor to assist you if I can.
 
Love, Light and Happy New Year,
Golda
