There is no shortage of articles to read about starting off the New Year right.
Everywhere you look there are new fitness packages, supplements you can purchase, and books you can read for that magic solution.
In fact, you can start fresh with a new wardrobe, new makeup, and a new someone special if you so choose.
There are a million ways to start off a new year in a new way. So, is there only one right way to do this?
There isn’t, but let’s be honest we love this stuff. I decided to jump in though, and talk about starting off the New Year right in ways that are most likely unconventional.
Starting off the New Year Right with the Right Attitude
Although a lot of what you hear at the New Year is all fluff, you can be sure that starting off with the right intentions and attitude is a great place to be.
If you are only thinking about what good you can do, how you can improve your life and how you can grow spiritually, then you are headed into the right place.
I have to say that not only are more people interested in being better people, but they are also concerned about ensuring that their kids see the right example.
These are the right things at the right time, and you can be rest assured that you’ll be the one others look to when your year is starting off more stable.
Stability is the key word this year, because I find that many folks have shaky experiences when they are living without a solid foundation.
Starting off the New Year right consists of a few simple things for me
- Attending a church service when available New Year’s Eve. Most churches have a New Year’s Eve service. If yours does I would encourage you to attend, but go expecting something to happen. What is it you desire? What do you want from God? Do you want more blessing, more love, more peace, or more of Him? Look for the opportunities within your Christian walk to seek more of Him in all things. The more you seek the more you will find.
- Do set goals. Okay, this may sound cliche, but remember, setting goals is what you should be doing all of the time. The one thing I’ll urge you to do for the new year is look back on 2017 and see where you have opportunities for growth and more. There are opportunities in every area of life, but setting goals gives you the foundation for your expectations. What did you accomplish? How can you stretch yourself further? Could you do more? This is why goals are the key to getting stuff done and final. It’s all about setting goals and getting moving!
- Track and report. As you make progress, write it down. Track all that you do and report on it. You need to keep records for yourself on everything. As you test marketing methods, track the results and write it down. Give yourself some leverage to use for changes and new tools. Track and report is the key to understanding how you are doing and what you must change going forward.
There is no time like the present for positive change, so don’t wait. If you truly want to focus on starting off the new year right, set your goals, track, and always keep pressing on for more!
