The Key Word is ENHANCE

Professional Speaker-Personal Development-Positive Attitude

You’ve heard it hundreds of times. As each New Year begins, you read articles, see TV ads, hear podcasts – all about New Year’s Resolutions.

How are you going to make your New Year better??

What changes are you going to make to be a better person???

It makes me want to scream! Don’t they know how hard it is to change?  Don’t they realize that I already feel guilty for not losing weight, not spending more time with my family, not saving more money, and a list of other failures?

I start each year really strong and work hard at my resolutions – until mid-January. Then I start to fade.  PLEASE, don’t remind me again of all the things I should do, but don’t.

So, this year, I’ve decided to try something different. Instead of looking at my failures and trying to correct them, I’ve decided to look at my successes and ENHANCE them.  Isn’t that a great word – ENHANCE.

This year, I’m going to make a list of all the things I got right this past year, and figure out a way to make them even better in 2016. For instance, I’m going to take more walks with my husband, enjoying his company, spending quality time together, and MAYBE a nice side effect would be better fitting jeans. But the difference is to concentrate on the positive – on what I got right, and just make it better.

What do you think? Is there something that you’re proud of doing this past year, and now you just want to take it to the next level?  Write it down and think of the word ENHANCE, then reach for the stars.   Take a close look at how far you’ve come this past year, and give yourself a pat on the back.   Nothing can stop you now.

What will you ENHANCE in the New Year?

    Thanks for the post Nancy. Its a great reminder for us to focus on our strengths. It’s all too easy to rue the failures, and the mind always goes to a negative. How often do we try to glance when someone tells us not to look, or we end up doing exactly what our parents told us not to do?
    Happy New Year!

    You’re so right. Research shows that 70-80% of our daily thoughts are negative. Now if we can just reverse that – what a great New Year it will be.
    Happy New Year to you as well,
