As the year-end approaches so many of my associates and friends are talking about that time of year when they take a few days to assess how this year went, as odd as it has been, and what they are anticipating or preparing for in 2022.

If you watch any news at all, you would think that only one thing happens in 2022, elections, yet there is a whole world out there waiting to occur. A whole world you can create if you develop a keen ability for focus, intent, and action. Our lives truly are what we choose to make them.

We have no control over what the external world does on its own, but we have every ability to decide how we will respond to it. In taking the time in meditation, prayer, reflection, or business/personal planning, you can create an objective, even a detailed plan, for your own guidance and direction going into 2022.  Simply, even if not always easily, allow yourself to get a perfectly clear understanding of where you want to go, what you are willing to do to get there, and know the price you are willing to pay.

Remember, price is more often not about finances but involves the work, commitment, and action required. That price can be much higher and harder since it requires so much of you. What it gives you however is such an amazing realization that you had what you needed all along, you just needed to focus it, create the intent, and then take the action. Simple. Logical. And “Easy.”

If calling in support, whether in planning or in execution, is necessary, know who to call AND CALL. Finding an excuse to stop is self-sabotage, finding a reason to bring in support is wisdom.

This is where recommitting to your vision becomes a necessity along with taking that next step, pragmatically.

Give yourself a gift at this time of year when so much is happening all around you and provide the gift of wisdom and prayer to your life. You deserve it. Your next year depends on it. Whatever stage of life you are in, whatever it is you most want to accomplish, all of this is possible, but it takes focus, intent, and action. It’s all possible; it’s all exciting, and it’s all transforming, however it requires all of you to be present in the process of planning and executing as needed. Why not, make your vision and dreams come to fruition, you’ve got what it takes, you just have to use it!
