Welcome to 2014! It is my sincere hope that everyone will see improvements in their lives this year. Sometimes it's hard to see how life can get any better, especially when one experiences significant challenges, but I believe it can be done.
I believe everything matters. What you believe (or don't), what you do (or don't) has an effect. Those effects can be beneficial or non-beneficial to your self or to others. You may choose to start a moderate workout routine and benefit your health. You might choose to make an extra sales call each day and benefit your wealth. You could choose to examine how non-beneficial beliefs about your self came to be and work on releasing them and in turn, benefit your entire life.
Taking responsibility for everything in your life isn't how society trains us. It's easy to say that 'such-and-such happened to me and that's why things are the way they are', but there is truth in saying your responses to 'such-and-such' were the reasons things turned out the way they did. Different choices produce different results.
If change truly is the only constant and that everything evolves, your choices will shape your evolution and your outcomes. Being mindful of and responsible for those choices is where you have the greatest opportunity to effect positive outcomes in your personal and business life. Here's hoping for your best year ever!
