New Year / New You.

What if you knew that 2012 was to be your greatest year ever? What if you celebrated every success, no matter its weight. What if you learned from every mistake and shared the lessons with others? What if you met New Year’s Day with an acute hunger to become, and not to acquire?   What if a New Year meant working to become a New You? A healthier you, a more prolific you, a you that is unashamed to play to your strengths? What if you fessed up to your weaknesses and worked to neutralize them? What if you believed in yourself the way that others do? What if you fed your spirit man more than your physical man? What if you invested in the lasting, eternal aspects of life? What if you invested in others? What if you did more legacy work and less reactive, redundant work? What if you learned how to truly rest? What if your lived not by a to-do list but by a to-be list? What if you were content? What if you knew that you already had what you needed to succeed? What would you try if you knew you wouldn’t fail?

Just asking.

  1. Love this post, GB! Such great thoughts. I often play the “what if” game in reverse (ie positively instead of negatively–worrying). Great reminder heading in to the new year. This is gonna be another landmark year for us, so I’m excited about it. Wishing you all the best of your dreams and desires for 2012.

    Yeah. I’m sort of in love with your site here. And this post. (Thanks, Steve Rice, for the tweet that led me here.) I love the “To Be” list. I’m making one right. now.
