New Year’s Day is behind us and if you’re like countless others you have made some goals and promises to yourself. If you’re like most of us, however, some of the goals and promises will be unfulfilled. Please give the following some time for reflection and maybe reenergize your efforts.

Where will you be a year from now? Where would you most like to be?

There is so much you've learned and experienced on your journey to this point. Now just imagine what you can do with that knowledge and experience.

This New Year has just begun and presents us with a grand opportunity, filled with promise and possibilities. All you have to do is to choose the very best of those possibilities, and know that you have the power to bring them to life.

Every day brings forth new decision opportunities. Regardless of your decisions, you will spend this year moving in one direction or another. Commit now to making those decisions which will move you in the direction that will take you toward what you truly desire.

Life, in each moment, is influenced by your presence and participation. As this new year unfolds, continue to make your presence and participation a positive and fulfilling one for you and those who surround you.

Consider today where you would like to be at this time next year. For now is just the beginning of the year in which you can truly make it happen. Remember that you create most of your own opportunities so take advantage of your efforts and initiatives.

What are you waiting for? Start today to influence tomorrow.
