As we come to the end of 2014, most of us are rounding up the year with the Christmas busyness of shopping, feasting and gatherings. In the midst of such busyness, at the back of our minds, we know that the year is coming to an end and we may be thinking about the coming year ahead. Those who are more mindful would probably be doing reflections of the year and planning for the coming one.
This week, I have 3 R’s on how to reboot and restart in preparation of 2015.
In the coming few weeks, take time out to refresh yourself in the midst of the busyness. Take a couple of days off for some “me” time to refresh your mind and spirit.
Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.
Instead of taking time to retire, take time to refire and recharge your passions and dreams. As we come to the end of the year, don’t forget to take time to think about the why of the what. We are called human “beings” and not human “doings” for a good reason. It is in the being that creates the reason for the season.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.
Before we get into the rut of doing up New Year Resolutions for 2015, maybe it is time to take up our old ones and see which ones we can “re-new”. Sometimes it is tough to take a look at our past, but ain’t we all a sum of all our past decisions and relationships? Maybe the way ahead is by looking back first before looking ahead.
If you want a new tomorrow, then make new choices today. Starting a new way is never easy so… keep starting until the start sticks.
