Much like this salad, the new year brings with it a fresh start; an opportunity to do a new thing. Even if you’re pursuing the same dreams, going after the same goals, working the same resolutions, it’s your chance at doing it differently.
It’s been said, doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is foolish. So, what better time to toss out the old?
Here are the five steps I’m employing as I press my way to a spectacular 2016:
Strip away all the baggage, dirt, and junk of 2015 and leave it all behind. Take only the lessons. Garb a hold of that fresh start and forge ahead. That means no pollutants; only sustainable practices that will move you closer to your field of dreams.
Plant that Seed
Get out there and work that thing! Enough said.
What can you do to ensure that newly planted seed will grow? Water it, of course! Put in the time, effort and resources necessary to set yourself up for success. Follow-up, follow through, and repeat.
Build & Grow
As you work and water do so with the expectation that your seed will sprout. Before you know it your tree will be blossoming.
Root it Up
Sure you’ll pause to take it all in. We all want to enjoy the fruits of you labor. But, don’t get so enamored with the pretty flowers that you stop planting for tomorrow. Go back to the root, the source and keep planting, watering, building and growing so you can get to that full blown harvest.
I know it will be hard. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy. But day by day, week by week, month by month…
What are you doing differently this year to ensure you’ll have your heart’s desire? Share it. Perhaps I’ll pick one or two to add to my mix.
Happy New Year and all the best for a bountiful and prosperous 2016!
