This is the day after Thanksgiving here in the United States. Most of us had a moment of reflection during the day, and expressed our thankfulness or gratitude for something. That something could have been something simple, or complex. Something that we may or may not have had any control over, but were just happy that it happened.
Here is my question to you this day.
What will you be Thankful for next year? Do you believe that you have the power to control those things? If not, let me tell you that you can. Whether it is business or family life, there is something that you can do today, to change your tomorrow.
If I were to ask you this;
Could you do something today that would really screw up your life? Could you make a mistake or a decision big enough to alter your life in a negative way?
If you answered no, you are a most likely hiding behind the truth on that. A vast majority would raise your hand and say, yes I could do something like that.
Now then, if you think you can do one thing to screw up your life, can you dare say that you cannot do something that will make a positive difference tomorrow?
We do not control our fate, but we do control a lot of what happens to us. What are you going to do today to help you tomorrow? How will you pursue your dreams, your goals, your happiness? What big things do you want to do? When will you take that first step?
It’s all about sitting down, and setting goals. Yes, it’s that time of year to begin the process. Do it now before January 1st. Why not make it a goal to pre-determine what you will be thankful for next Thanksgiving?
