Starting New Starting Fresh

Starting New Starting Fresh

We’re almost three weeks into the New Year. The invitation and prospect of starting new, starting fresh is still open to each of us. Of course, we may not know what lies ahead. It could be exciting and take us beyond out wildest dreams. It could be a little more of the same, perhaps with a slight twist. Or…

Whatever accepting the invitation brings, it will be easier if we follow the philosophy of one of my favorite authors:

I will work convinced that nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. To do anything today that is truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering
and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can.
— Og Mandino

One underlying factor with this is how we use our gift of choice. Choosing to step out in faith willing to handle whatever comes, to the best of our abilities, is a powerful gift we give ourselves. We step out into our potential. Choosing to stand where we are most likely will get us more of the same. If this is your choice consider whether fear, doubt, resistance or inertia hold you back.

Also, consider how you might tap into your well of enthusiasm. Focus, especially on what causes you to be enthusiastic and where you find your source of enthusiasm, as you continue this exploration.

May you find great joy and enthusiasm as you reflect on the above for your personal and professional life. Know that I support you in taking one more step and then another and then...
