Looking forward to the year ahead

As another year draws to a close, and you sit there, thinking of the past and the future, you can begin to understand the value of using each day to its fullest.

Understanding the value of this, thinking how it could make a difference in your life, you begin to make a commitment to a life of achievement.

As your anticipation builds, you might take a few moments to remind yourself how thrilled you are to be alive. Now, as you look ahead to the new year, you can commit to working hard to make your dreams a reality. Because you realize the value of discipline, you know that you will make every day count.

While you visualize your goals, and develop a plan of action, you can get excited and begin to put your plans into action. Naturally, you are aware that when you work hard to provide value to others, the possibilities are unlimited. As you commit to excellence in your life, know that this will expand your future beyond anything you ever dreamed possible.

Realize that you can easily accomplish anything you wish when you decide to be persistent in your efforts. Understand that you must do whatever needs to be done and do it now.

Natuarally, as you discover the power of highly focused self direction, you’ll find new ways to succeed beyond your wildest dreams. The more you think about the year ahead, the more you will commit to make your dreams a reality.

In the months ahead, as you do your work each day, let your mind motivate you to create success immediately. And a year from now, when 1996 draws to a close, you can look back on a year of success and achievement.
