The New Year (2)

The New Year (2)

Mt 19:26 NIV     “With God all things are possible.”

Jon Gordon offers us practical New Year’s resolutions: “(1) Stay positive. You can listen to the cynics and believe success is impossible, or believe ‘with God all things are possible.’ (2) Each day when you awake, complete this statement: ‘My purpose is ______.’ (3) Take a morning walk of gratitude. It creates a fertile mind for success. You can’t be stressed and thankful at the same time, and when you combine gratitude with physical exercise you give yourself a double-boost of positive energy and natural antidepressants. (4) Instead of being disappointed about where you are, think optimistically about where you’re going. (5) Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a college kid with a maxed-out charge card! (6) Believe that everything happens for a reason, and good things come from challenging experiences. (7) Don’t waste energy on gossip, past issues, negative thoughts, and things you can’t control. Invest in the positive, present moment. (8) Mentor someone and be mentored by someone. (9) Live with the 3 E’s: Energy. Enthusiasm. Empathy. (10) Remember there’s no substitute for hard work. (11) Zoom-focus: Ask yourself, ‘What are the three most important things I need to do today?’ (12) Implement the ‘No complaining’ rule. Complaining is like vomiting; afterwards you feel better but people around you feel sick! (13) Read more books than you did last year. (14) Get more rest. You can’t replace sleep with a double latte! (15) Before bed complete these statements: ‘I’m thankful for ______.’ ‘Today I accomplished ______.’ (16) Think of your mind like a garden. If you weed the negative and feed the positive for one day it doesn’t do much, but when you do it every day you create a magnificent garden.”
