No matter how much you plan, truth is, life still happens. You can have two or three contingency plans and things still not work out how you predicted. Anytime you try to predict the future, even if it is only an hour away, you are taking a risk. This doesn’t mean you stop planning. This doesn’t mean you stop taking risks. It just means you acknowledge the potential obstacles and move forward.
You cannot plan failure or success, but you can plan how you will react to both. Decide the risks that are worth taking and realize that even if it doesn’t work out, you are two steps ahead of anyone who never tried.
As you are prepping for the new year, your goals may scare you. They should. You weren’t meant to be as great as you are without flexing your muscles occasionally. As you move through the year, life can happen and throw you off course. However, staying true to yourself will help you find your way back.
The one thing I want you to remember moving forward into this next year is that the greatest blessing of them all is that you are here. If you reach all your goals, GREAT! If you reach none of your goals, GREAT! You know why? Because as life happens and minds change, you know what will always remain the same? Your worth.
So, jump in and make something shake if you can. Life will throw some unexpected twists and turns your way, but I know you can find a way to hop on top and ride the wave. Just continue to move forward and don’t look back.
What goal do you have for next year that you are afraid you won’t accomplish? Write down why you are afraid to fail and what makes you think you won’t accomplish this goal. Keep this piece of paper and use it as a reminder of why you can succeed. Prove yourself wrong.
Of course, this is optional, but if you would like to be held accountable for starting your year off right, feel free to submit your ARTwork to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any submissions will be completely confidential and act as an additional submission into the 10 Day l 10 ART Lessons Giveaway.
