The Other Side

New Year, New Me

We’re a month into the new year. It’s about the time of year when people start falling off of their New Year’s resolutions. They’re either not as consistent as they committed to be, or they’ve stopped altogether; only to get to the end of the year and make the same resolutions next year.

Many people say “new year, new me,” without thinking about the notion that each of us are the same person from year to year, but we develop and grow in who we are. Everything that encompasses who we are and our purpose is already inside of us. It’s just a matter of discovering it and becoming it.

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

Mark Twain

When we understand our purpose, we can say yes to things connected to our destiny, and no to those things that won’t bring true fulfillment. In a way, that’s what resolutions are all about – focusing on the things that matter, minimizing distractions, and cutting the fluff.

Shifting our perspective from “new year, new me,” to understanding who we are and developing what’s already inside of us will give us the insight on how to approach each new year with the right mindset to be successful on our journey.
