“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice: It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” – William Jennings Bryan
As the new year unfolds, it has somehow become a yearly ritual to set goals and plan the whole year. However somewhere along the way we lose sight of those goals, or are simply defeated or distracted by the things life throws our way.
As I meditated on the quote above, it became clear how often we fall into the trends without actually thinking if what we are embarking on is something we really want or if it’s simply an expectation set by society or our loved ones. In order to truly advance in life we must always be aware of the choices we make and must be prepared to paddle through until we see those goals and dreams fulfilled. Things are not going to happen on their own, sure we might get lucky every now and then when things go as planned but if we are to be honest with ourselves, we must be ready to fail along the way, and must be willing to be persistent until the end.
Take this time to plan ahead, dream big, set realistic and measurable goals that will feed your soul and allow you to finish strong.
