It is not a form of motivational rhetoric when we say that you are only limited by your imagination. Another year has come and gone. 2022 is gone forever, and 2023 is now here. While you have no power to change 2022, you surely have the power to plan for 2023. It starts with your imagination. What are you dreaming for the new year?
Here is a fact that you must take with you as you start a new year. Your life cannot be great, impactful, or meaningful until you know what you want, plan for it, and take actions toward achieving it. Everyone is responsible for the outcomes of their lives. You are the architect of your own destiny. Such firm statements may be difficult to accept, especially when you introduce some religious dimensions to it. But remember, as an example, that what God gives us is the ability (the power) to produce wealth (all-round success).
Everyone has been given an ability. How you use that ability determines your level of success in 2023. You have the power to dream, to form a mental picture of the year. You can develop specific goals based on those dreams. You have the ability to develop a plan to achieve those goals. And the achievement of what you have planned is right in your hands.
Do not let us get superficial or superstitious about 2023. Whatever anyone sows they will reap. Anyone that sows little (by contributing little effort to their dreams, goals, and plans) will harvest little. The converse is also true. It is your, and my, responsibility to break down the walls that stand in the way. Believe for great things and work toward them. Let us dream big and achieve big in 2023. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
