Happy New Year, everyone! 2015 has had its high moments, but it has overall been a buzzkill…at least for me. It even ended on a negative note (more on that later). Me, along with other twenty somethings were waiting patiently for 2016 to roll in. A new year, a new start, right? Well…
A new start, starts with you. YOU. Once you make that decision to take a new path, you have to put forth a little bit of effort. “Faith without works is dead.” James 2:17 (NIV) We can pray for a new job, or a higher GPA, but are you willing to work for these things? Are you actively searching for a job? Are you studying and taking notes for better test grades? Right.
With 2016, we need to be workers instead of wishers. Let’s stop making excuses and being scared. What’s the worse that could happen? I’ve always heard the phrase, “shoot for the moon, and even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” I’ll be honest, in the past month and a half, I’ve missed the moon a few times. However, I didn’t let it stop me, I learned from it, and I kept it moving. Don’t get me wrong, missing on an opportunity is painful, but we can’t let one failure define us. Don’t let fear keep you from moving forward this year. Make 2016 a year of productivity. Make things happen for you this year.
Be great everyone,
