Each start is symbolic of new energy/passion/strategies and simply a fresh page to consider re-writing the story of your life on new encounters that are yet to be met ahead. The beauty of life is first of all in that there is a God in it who orchestrates all our step whether we know that or not, and secondly in that; every encounter is a surprise and leaves you with a new testimony/experience/success story. A new year in most cases follows such trails. Many of us in life meet circumstances which leave us with the hope that when a new year comes it will correct your all wrongs and leave us that history is not going to repeating itself. For some, a New Year is REALLY a new beginning in that for a whole previous year they will be planning on projects that they want to work on in the New Year ahead, there is wisdom there because it has always been said that “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail” and “prior preparations prevent poor performance”.
So just in case your 2017 wasn’t upto your expectation, count yourself favored enough to have entered 2018, which is another chance to raise up your expectation in anticipation of great results.
Question Tag: “What were your life lessons in 2017 and what are you hoping to achieve in 2018 that you either failed to achieve in 2017 or were planning to do in 2018?” Miracles won’t pop up from the sky just because ‘perhaps’ we pray so much about success but after praying we will need to wake up and work on those viable projects and plans in mind. It’s possible to accomplish all our plans only that it’s dependent on how realistic we are. Note that, “busyness doesn’t meant that we are making progress, but only a result orientated individual will make measurable products and progress in life. The honest truth is that we all have equal time to achieve or goals but depending on our planning and discipline, we are all going to produce differently at the end of the year.
In this New Year, let’s not allow limitations by anything or anyone to rob us of our energy because we all have dreams in life and no one is responsible for their success or failure but us. As this year starts, kick start on a high note, avoid distraction and finish strong. New Years’ experiences are most often personal in the sense that to some it might be starting afresh in a new book, whilst to some it might be a new start in a new chapter in the same book, and to some it’s the start of a new page in the same chapter of the same book, through it all God is Gracious to everyone. Look upto Heaven with greater anticipation for a better years’ experience ahead because our Hope (and Life) is in the Lord, men might continuously and/or potentially fail you but “He (The Lord) won’t fail…”
NB: “Dreams without GOALS are just mere dreams if (not nightmares)”
