As we greet the new day and a new year, we have the opportunity to redirect our path. The question I landed on at 11:59 pm on December 31, 2021, was this.
"Where do I want to be on December 31, 2022?"
I want to have lived more days on purpose than in response. I wish not to wake up and live my habits, instead to work towards a plan in my career, passion, and health.
I broke my wrist on December 20 and had surgery on the 27th, so finding an excuse to delay writing would be easy. My entire life, I have had these thoughts and ideas about how I could approach life differently and, in doing so, change my life and hopefully inspire others.
Yet, the years passed, and I made excuses. So 2022, I am attempting to see if maybe this is the year I will create change instead of waiting for change to come to me.
I believe there are questions we can ask ourselves which will allow us to become more self-aware and, in doing so, open the door to our true potential.
So each day beginning January 2, I will post a question I have asked myself and share my thoughts on why the question matters to me.
Please let me know your thoughts or share questions that have helped you along your journey.
"Do I look for solutions or dwell on the problem?"
Honestly, in my life, I have done both. However, I learned early that focusing on the problem limits finding a solution. That is how I discovered authors and mentors like Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra.
Their work enables us to take action on how we respond to life and in doing so shift the course of our life. Life is messy, however, in every situation, we have the power to decide how we respond.
This has been a key to every moment of success I have had in all areas of my life.
