We started December with the 3 D’s to end 2014 right and here we are at the last day of the year 2014. To end off the year, I’ll have 3 E’s to start your 2015 well. If you’ve noticed, the past few posts had been with alphabets and if you put all four together, our December has been a month to DARE. As we end of the year, I would like to DARE you… to move, to change and to step into the new year! Before we get to the last post, just to dedicate something to everyone out there…
Actually I’ve cheated a little, because the 3 E’s of this post is in fact 3 “Embrace” that we need to adopt in the new year in order to start it well.
1. Embrace the moment
As we start off the year, take time to smell the roses. When we step into office the next day, don’t forget to pause as the busyness set in. Before we get caught up by people’s expectations or the load of work awaiting you, know that everyday brings new experiences for us to appreciate and acknowledge.
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
2. Embrace the change
We often hear the phrase “the only constant in life is change”, but many of us would probably like that phrase apply to everyone else but ourselves. We would like other people to change, our circumstances be change, the cards dealt by life be changed. We need to realise that the only way people, circumstances or chances can only be changed when we change.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
George Bernard Shaw
3. Embrace the possible
The only way for 2015 to be the best year yet is to expect the unexpected, which means that anything is possible. Even things that we think are impossible, more often than not, life will prove us wrong. So rather than being proven wrong, we might as well embrace that anything is possible. When we do so, we will grow to the capacity of doing anything we set out to do.
Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
May the coming year be the best year of your life!!! Yet!!!
