Today we usher in a new year, a new month, a new week.
What did you learn from the last one?
It’s not what happens that matters. It’s what you learn from the experience.
Bad things happened in 2011. Tons of them.
What did you learn?
Bad things will happen in 2012 too. It’s a guarantee.
Here are your three options:
Run away. Ignore the lessons earned from tough times. Be shocked again when bad things happen.
If you picked option #1 for 2011, you can change your mindset. Face the hard times, learn from your challenges in 2012.
Take the lessons learned in 2011 to prepare for and minimize the damage of tough times ahead. Run toward the future with eyes wide open. Be brave. Be aware.
There are no other options. You’ll either be an idiot, a newbie, or a veteran of hard times.
Thanks for teaching me in 2011.
Thanks for your comments. Thanks for your sharing. Thanks for your heart.
You changed me this year. I will never be the same.
Here’s to a great year of learning ahead…cheers!
