New Year, Fresh Start for 2017! Where Will You Take It?
The party favors and New Year’s Eve champagne are gone. You have a New Year, full of hope and promise, ahead of you! Don’t overthink it or tally up an enormous list that is unachievable. Define a few areas in your life that you would like to improve. The year will be successful as you take the time to slow down, be grateful, and make the right choices.

A new year is not just the party, a boatload of resolutions, and anticipation. The year 2017 will take shape as you reach your goals through thousands of small moments; moments where conscious choice leads to richer, more fulfilling life.

Resolutions are merely thoughts you have written down to guide you to a higher level. You may have some money-motivated ideas, lifestyle goals or educational objectives. Write down a few significant possibilities to determine the small steps that would help you achieve personal success. Four best practices to sustain your resolutions.

What would make your life better? Take some time to think about the future. You can enrich your life with thoughtful intentions, making the most of the opportunities that come your way. Take pleasure from your successes and be flexible, try again when your dreams do not go as perfectly as you planned. Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.”

People are the only living beings on this planet that can visualize a better life in the future. Take this moment to “see” yourself in a new place this coming year and start the journey!

Enjoy this motivational TED Talk from Gilbert Jones (below). He shares how to visualize and incorporate happiness into your life. I hope this will help you to design a prosperous 2017!

Wishing you a joyous, fruitful new year.

THE BEST is YET to COME

new-yearAnother year is upon us! Time to review the past year and to celebrate a new beginning.

Look back over the past year, take a moment to reflect on the moments that meant the most to you and to sift through the hard times to determine how to navigate 2016 more efficiently.

Open your heart and mind to this new year. There are so many opportunities and new experiences ahead even though the future is unknown. This nebulous new year will soon become a new chapter in the fabric of life. While it feels uncertain, resetting your personal and financial GPS brings you a plethora of positive possibilities. Remember, even your best friends were once strangers.

Today is a good time to purchase a journal for planting new ideas, setting a few goals and documenting the journey this next year. While anticipation for the “new year” is exciting, it is easy to think a change will come overnight, and even easier to get disillusioned when goals seem elusive, and more time is needed to achieve goals you desire. Be honest with yourself when setting new goals. And be compassionate with yourself as revisions are made over time.

Embrace yourself! Open your eyes to fresh opportunities. Write down your dreams and add a deadline. Create your blueprint for 2016 and then follow up each and every day with small steps toward your most important goals. Build a life of proactive abundance, using conscious choices that result in a wealth of life, love and having “more than enough!”

Here’s to a bountiful and intentional life in 2016!
