"Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” William Jennings Bryan
We encourage you to make this next year of your life a year for achieving the success you’ve only dreamed possible. We encourage you to stop waiting for things to happen, and instead take action. Make a decision to go from where you are now, to where you really want to be in your life.
"What scientists now know about how the brain works is that you must first decide WHAT you want, before your brain can figure out HOW to get it. As soon as you commit to a big dream and really go after it, your subconscious creative mind will come up with big ideas to make it happen. You'll start attracting the people, resources, and opportunities you need into your life to make your dream come true.
You should set a goal big enough that in the process of achieving it, you become someone worth becoming.
Something else you'll discover is that when your dreams include service to others -- accomplishing something that contributes to others -- it also accelerates the accomplishment of that goal.
Turn Your Dreams into Goals and Objectives. Once you are clear about what you want, you must turn each item into a measurable specific objective. ie how much and by when. Write your goals down in detail, and read your list of goals every day." Jack Canfield: The Success Principles
