Looking forward to a great new year!

Looking forward to a great year

Now I have heard some people that are not all that optimistic about 2022. But why? 2020 and 2021 were a little off, full of fear and anger, that is true but why must 2022 be the same? Life is all about choices you make so make 2022 a great year.

Whatever you didn’t like about 2021 change how you approach it this year. Look at how you respond to the stimulus around you and create a better choice. 2022 has every potential to be a great year, all we need to do is look for it and apply it. Every year has its challenges and problems but that is part of the spice that trains you to handle life and the bumps in the road. Every year people die and while that brings pain that too is part of living.

This year has within it everything we need to succeed and run with confidence. We simply need to choose to run. We might look back at two years that did not go as planned for many reasons, each of us could list off more than a few but that is in the past. Today is now and this year is now. Now is the time to make it great.

Again, it is true that our past is what has brought us to where we are and has to a large degree defined who we are, but it also has taught us how to handle the situations that brought us here. So, let’s use what we have learned to create a great year out of that which is ahead.

If you want to start a new business, plan well and go for it. If you want to learn something new, look at what hinders you and find a way. Look at the new day and the new year with optimism. Those around you might still live in fear and anger, that does not mean you have to. As the saying goes, “grab life by the horns.” This year is going to be a great year!

It is going to be great indeed, especially once enough of us realize that we are more self-sufficient than we think, instead of putting all our faith in some “expert” or “authority” who may or may not have our best interests in mind. Planning is essential for this. Thank you, Greg, for the inspiring post!

Great pep talk, Greg, but it amazes me why so many think that resolutions and change need to be addressed only at the start of each new calendar year, only to fritter out at the first hint of difficulty, through lack of commitment. As you say, “look at what hinders you and find a way,” but do the prep then commit. There are no problems in life, only opportunities. The ‘problem’ mindset can act like a roadblock, if we let it, whereas the ‘opportunity’ mindset will convey us towards change and improvement, when we choose to sit in the driving seat. The choice is ours, but we can choose any time throughout the year.
