Its a simple question, what do you really want in your life in 2013? May I start by wishing you all a healthy, wealthy and happy 2013. I want you to believe with all your mind and heart that this will be the year you truly begin to see the fruits of your labour. Your dreams begin to come to life, and your life at last becomes something that you yourself have designed.
Maybe your life appears to be off track. Or perhaps you feel like you’re on a losing streak, and that ‘luck’ is always reserved for people other than yourself. Well maybe this is the year where you’re going to see a major breakthrough. If you believe that is possible, you’re giving it the power to happen.
I celebrated the breaking of this New Year on the Island of Lanzarote. I was introduced to a wonderful new custom. Eating 12 grapes at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Eating Twelve Grapes to the chimes of the clock at midnight on New Year’s Eve is an old Spanish tradition. When it is midnight in Spain on New Years Eve, each time the clock chimes, all the people put a grape in their mouth. By the time the clock has finished chiming, everybody has to have finished their grapes and the New Year starts. If you manage to eat the 12 grapes then you will have 12 months good luck.
You also best delay kissing your friends or singing Auld Lang Syne unless you want to be spraying grape pips and juice everywhere.
It was a very different way of starting the New Year. Refreshingly so. Evidence maybe that we really don’t have to be stuck in are old ways in anything.
Ever feel like you’re caught up in being busy, busy, busy, but not sure if you’re doing what you should be doing? It’s scary to think we could be throwing all our time and energy into doing the wrong things. Spending so much time and effort that will get us no further along.
Don’t just continue in that fashion throughout 2013. Make this the year where you truly set about things differently.
Let me tell you the beautiful thing about today. It is the 1st of January 2013. It’s the start of a new year, day one, where you have the power to make massive improvements to your life. You can start right now building your new tomorrows, starting fresh right here right now.
The simple reality of it all is that the world went to sleep and has woken up to a new year. Now you can wake up to a new life. It’s down to the choices you make.
You know you’re constantly getting caught up in the day to day and hour to hour routines of life. This means that you never get a chance to step back and see the bigger picture, or ask yourself those important questions?
Well ask yourself one now:
What do you really want in your life?
That’s all I want you to consider today!
Thank you for reading.
