I’m interpreting this beautiful quote by Roald Dahl as another argument for the power of the Law of Attraction. I watched The Secret back in 2006 when it came out. I was fascinated by the concept and was also sceptical at the same time. More than a decade later, I’m still fascinated by the concept.
It doesn’t matter whether you believe in Law of Attraction or not. Clarity in your thoughts and intentional actions are the keys to creating magic in your life.
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope your read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And, I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. – Neil Gaiman
After careful consideration, I commit to myself and to Neil Gaiman; I will only do the below two things daily for the next 66 days as part of my #my66daychallenge.
- Read 25 pages a day.
- Do 1 deadlift a day.
It doesn’t matter where you start. It matters where you finish. – Zig Ziglar
Zig’s powerful words were summarised by Dr. Stephen Covey as his habit #2: Begin with End in Mind.
I know I’m kind of stretching the words a bit. I’m pretty sure if you think about it, you will agree that having an end in mind will definitely help you in taking the first step. No matter what, it’s not where you start; in order to reach your goal, you have to start somewhere. So, don’t hesitate, just take the first step now …
That’s my ONE word for 2017. It took me quite a journey to come up with a word. I wanted to go for DECLUTTER but I felt it as a negative word. Probably, it’s not a negative word. For whatever reason, I just did not feel it in me. I searched the Internet for my one word that will represent intentional living and minimalism. I found it and it is SIMPLIFY.
Well well well! It’s that time of the year were people all around trying to make sense of the current year. Some may have lived a meaningful life. Some may have absolutely wasted their life. No matter which camp you fall, there’s always HOPE for everyone.
In this last few weeks of 2016, I will be reflecting upon my life and start creating an intentional plan for 2017. I encourage everyone to do the same.
Many years ago I read somewhere and I’m paraphrasing; It’s OK to lose few battles. All that matters is, you win the war. This is a great mindset to have during challenging times.
The greatest military generals have lost battles but won the war. When you face a setback; ask yourself “Am I ready to stand up again and fight till I win?”.
