You can’t change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction. – Jim Rohn
This one has been on my mind as New Year’s came and passed. We all didn’t wake up in a different place on January 1st. There wasn’t some magical moment right after we made our resolutions when we changed into this whole different person who does or doesn’t do those new things you came up with for resolutions.
Sorry, but you woke up at the same destination you went to sleep (at least hopefully), but you (hopefully again) did change your direction.
Hopefully, New Years represented a new direction for you. A decision to change and head towards something better. A time when you decided to move away from something and towards something else.
To move from candy to fruit.
To move from no exercise to exercise.
To move from not saving money to saving money.
To move from no studying to disciplined learning.
Whatever the direction change you chose, seize this time of renewal and enthusiasm and build it into a habit. Look at the long term results you are going to get and then get excited about it.
Focus on it. Make it a priority.
And then make it happen.
