In the past, I used to struggle with seasonal depression every last quarter of the year. I struggled because my dreams were not all actualized and I used to feel it had something to do with me. Truth is it always had something to do with me, but depression never changed a thing.
For a while now, I haven’t suffered depression in this regard anymore. However, this end of year is even better! Not because I did all that I set out to do but because looking ahead there is a picture that I see and that picture just makes life so much easier and fulfilling to live right now!
What about you?
Are you depressed or are you looking ahead into 2011 and all of its possibilities? What will make the New Year your dream year? Whatever it is, it is a possible feat, and all it will take will be a VISION, ‘A picture of your preferred future’.
I don’t know about you but a picture of success in my mind inspires and keeps me going. I can see already all that I can do and become in 2011, so rather than dread it; I am looking forward to it.
When you are sure of what you want to do or be in the New Year, then it is time to write it down… this is not a New Year resolution; this is a vision that has within it, a goal. You not only see it but you can tell what problem it will solve or what question it will answer.
Having a VISION may not be all the energy that you need, except your VISION carries a PURPOSE. This is for me an Eternal Value that I am looking to create with my VISION. Something that will outlive me and keep giving to my generation is what I want to do next year.
What about you?
Can others see this VISION in you? What resources apart from money do you require to actualize it? How long are you willing to stick with it? Does it align with your CORE STRENGHTS and VALUES?
The year may be ending, and a lot of things may still be undone, rather than straining to look into the past why not embrace the future with a plan? Write down your VISION, pursue it with all that you are and at the end of next year, no matter what may have happened, you will be able to say ‘I did my best’.
Are you ready to DREAM? The future is yours for the taking…NeverTheLess.
