nother 365 days journey has begun on 1st January.
The new year is always full of hope, efforts to change and trying to meet challenges.
Everyone wishes for three main things: To be Healthier, Happier & wealthier. But we do not seriously pause and reflect, do we?
Below few reminders that may help:
1. To be healthy, regular exercise, weight lifting for muscle toning (as we get older), diet control, stress management and 7-8 sleep hours of sleep are essential.
2. Being happy, optimistic and positive thinking will motivate change.
3. For prosperity, one must have a goal, a dream, a plan, focus and action with perseverance. Also, move out of your comfort zone, and take risks (calculated if not open), then only you will experience growth and progress.
4. Remember, failure is part of success. Do not despair if you fail, that’s the road to achieving something. Without trying or experimenting nothing would have been invented or discovered!!
How do we act?
You have 365 days to ‘walk the talk’.
1st step is very important followed by simple manageable changes with consistency– then only you will realize, over time,3, or,6 or after 12 months–how big a difference comes to your life.
Do not forget New Year is starting line for all, mentally and motivationally a point of beginning. This is yet one more opportunity in life. Take it. It is never too late.
Always keep in mind, do not do anything that displeases God – then only God will be with you for determining your success.
Stay connected with family, friends and relatives, and always share part of your wealth with the needy, and relatives – and happiness will find you.
