A New Year – a New You: Here’s a New Year’s Resolution Idea

Don’t limit yourself by setting a New Year’s resolution that you think you can accomplish, instead dream BIG enough and BE courageous enough, to set your mind on that which is impossible, but shaped to be achievable.

In the January-February 2013 issue of Harvard Business Review, they conducted an interview with the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and author/historian David McCullough. He is a storyteller first, who, at 79, is celebrating the success of his most recent book, “The Greater Journey” about Americans in Paris, and who says he is “fired up” to start his next book.

When it comes to dreaming big, don’t concern yourself on your limitations, instead focus on your passions. McCullough was quoted saying, “When the founders wrote about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, they didn’t mean longer vacations and more comfortable hammocks. They meant the pursuit of learning. The love of learning. The pursuit of improvement and excellence. I keep telling students, ‘Find work you love. Don’t concern yourself overly about how much money is involved or whether you’re ever going to be famous.’ …In hard work is happiness.”

Dream BigOn New Year’s Eve people make resolutions. Some say they want to lose weight, while others promise to break a bad habit. Whatever people desire to change, the new year offers hope and new beginnings. It’s a good time to reflect and modify unwanted behavior but most importantly it’s a promise you make to your self.

Abraham Lincoln once said, ““And in the end it is not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.”

So don’t limit yourself by setting a New Year’s resolution that you think you can accomplish, instead dream BIG enough and BE courageous enough, to set your mind on that which is impossible, but shaped to be achievable. Find what you’re passionate about and live your life of purpose.

Happy New Year!
