What we all need for this New Year is to make the right decisions and take the action to accomplish our dreams. If we do this, that means we are not making any excuses or procrastinating. Do not doubt yourself and have no fear that what you are doing will get the results you are wanting.

We can all, from time to time, allow some form of doubt to creep in but that is allowing yourself to slip into a negative frame of mind. If you find that you doubt anything, including your own ability to be successful, take affirmative action. Action is the key to success. If you attempt something and you fail, try again. You will have given yourself a valuable lesson and when you try again you will know where you failed on your first attempt. Your only failing is when you stop trying.

Don’t let other people’s doubts, destroy your dreams. You will always have the well meaning friend or relative who tells you to give your dreams away and be realistic. They mean well but they can also try and change the direction you are headed. Just smile and tell them “thank you for your advice and I will think about what you have said.”

Very important -that you have all your dreams written down as goals so you know where you are going and how long it will take to get there. Always do one task at a time – otherwise, if you are attempting many things, you will tend to be over whelmed. If you reach this point, you sometimes find that you can do nothing because you have not prioritized your work load. I have had friends that have reached this point and then they start making all the excuses they can think of.

So this year are you going to be the one making excuses or are you the one who will take action? Only you can decide. Others can encourage you but you have to be the one who takes action and works towards achieving all you desire for yourself and your family.

So if you think that you do not have it easy, watch this video and rethink it.

  1. Hi Sue,

    What a great little video. VERY motivating.

    Yes, the only people who lose are those who don’t take action.

    Action teaches us lessons and brings us results – eventually.

    Nice post!

    Yes I think this year some of us have to make changes that will improve us. Sometimes, we do not take the appropriate action to achieve the desired results.

    I know that my life is going to take some major turns this year for the better as long as I do the work required.

    Thanks for your comment,

    A moving story which we all need to take to heart. They did extremely well for not playing on a “proper” pitch to start with.

    Yes we tend to complain if we don’t have some thing or other but this group certainly changed their lives and lived their dreams.
