Happy New Year friends!!
It is that time of the year again when we all receive the hearty and cozy emails from all our loved ones wishing us a prosperous and happy new year. This is the time most motivational speakers are at the peak of their careers assuring us in different ways that this is our year of success. But one thing’s for sure, we never ask them how we are going to achieve all that they proclaim in our lives and more often than not, they do not volunteer to guide us on how to get to this success.
A wise man once said, “Maturity is when you realize that a new year does not change you.” Most people treat the 1st of January as a special day when they stay home or go out to celebrate. No one wants to be working on New Year’s Day and we find it odd that the shopkeeper decided to open the shop and continue with his trade.
What we do every new year is we all have the mindset that it being a new year, all the bad things have got to stay back and you should have a year of no stress and hustle this new year. However, without mental transformation, the actions we take to ‘change’ may only produce a new place where we continue to do our old things.
We end up living the same way we did the previous year and achieve the same results then come December, we are not slow in complaining about how the speaker at the beginning of the year lied to you. All because we are too comfortable in our comfort zones and are too lazy to realize that the steps we take towards achieving our success are faulty and do not change them.
You do not need the New Year stereotype to bring change to your life. The only one that can bring change in your life is you. The New Year only changes the circumstances but does not change you. Make the decision and take the initiative to do things differently to make you reap sweeter fruits in your life this year.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
