Happy New Year Today
“All experiences of life seems to prove that the impediments thrown in the way of the human advancement may for the most part be overcome by steady good conduct, honest zeal, activity, perseverance and above all, by a determined resolution to surmount.” – Samuel Smiles
As we approach the end of the year, we put together our list of “resolutions,” many are repeats of last year and the year before. We call them resolutions, but unless we have a plan and take steps every day to achieve them, they are merely wishes. Wishes are magic. Resolutions are work. The true reward is found in hard work and discipline, earning your victories.
Don’t delay the journey to your aspirations. Start now, a step at a time and on New Year’s Eve, you’ll have something concrete to celebrate.
“Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.” – Saint Augustine
