This Year Really is Going to be Different

“This year is going to be different. Really! I’m serious this time. This is going to be my year. I mean it this time.”  More than likely, you’ve probably said this a time or two. I know that I have. However, even though this may have been my mantra a time or two, I have noticed that the times where my year was different, it was because I took intentional steps to make it different. Surprisingly (although it should not have been), I found my steps wrapped up in the definition of one very provocative word, SUCCESS.

Success:“the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one’s goals.”

Several things immediately got my attention after I read the definition of success.

  • Goals. If I’m going to have a successful year I need to define what a successful year looks like to me.
  • Favorable or prosperous. Success isn’t always about money.
  • Attempts. I can’t have success if I’m not “attempting” anything. So, if I want to have an amazing year I have to do something to make it happen.
  • Accomplishment. If I start it I should finish it.

For my year to be successful and amazing I am going to have to sit down and think about what I want as it relates to my personal life and my business (favorable or prosperous goals).  After I know what I want, I am going to have to do the work (attempts) necessary to have the life that I want for the year (accomplishment). That’s it, so simple right!



Are you living a purposeful life?  Do you look forward to each day?  Do you realize the life that you are currently living is a result of YOUR choices?  Scary stuff huh?  There is good news.  You can turn things around today, right now, by making different choices.  Begin today by choosing to move forward from where you are to where you want to be.


The first time I heard someone say that I was where I was because I chose to be there, I was livid!  How dare they say that. Why would I choose to be stuck. Why would anyone want to remain stuck, stagnant, merely existing?  It is a question I have asked myself many times.  The truth is we really do choose to remain stuck in a life we would rather not be in.  We all have our different reasons for staying.  If we look within, we’ll figure out why we stay.  Why do you continue to live a life without passion and purpose?  Wouldn’t you rather wake up each day excited to live your life?


Why not make the choice today to become unstuck.  Make the choice to uncover your purpose so that you can live a life of more.  Be Inspired!
