Every new year is a blank slate where everything is possible and plans can become proud successes
Of course it is. Every day is exactly that too. Every moment exactly that as well.
Which is why waiting for January 1, 2015 to begin executing on a plan already in your head is arbitrary at best, fearful and self-defeating at worst.
Why are you waiting? Why not take the first step, no matter how small, right now.
Face unafraid, these plans that you’ve made.
Because if you’re waiting for the “fresh start” of 2015 to get started on some new idea, initiative, or plan, what you’re really doing is letting fear get the best of you. And you’re better than that. We all are.
You have a fresh start tomorrow, December 25, if you want it. You have a fresh start as soon as you finish reading this article, if you want it. Heck, if you’ve already read enough, you can stop reading this article right now and get a fresh start immediately.
Only fear or family are preventing you from taking the first step on your new year journey right now, just find a few private moments away from family at some point over the next week … and then all you have left to do is vanquish the fear and step into the new year (a week early).
That’s how you face unafraid, these plans that you’ve made.
What one little step can you do right now?
So what is your biggest goal or initiative — personal or professional — for 2015? What plans are you waiting for the first day of January to get started on?
And what one step can you take over the next week to get started now? To start building positive momentum immediately?
Don’t worry about thinking beyond that one step. It will inevitably lead to a second, then a third. Just take the first one. You’ll already be way ahead of the alternative — which was waiting for the new year.
Don’t do that. Don’t wait. Instead, embrace the new here. Embrace the now.
Face unafraid, the plans that you’ve made.
And walk into your winning wonderland.
