Unleashing Your Personal Power for Success in the New Year

Every year we start out with personal goals and things that we want to accomplish only to be disappointed at the end of it. It happens more often than we believe. And it’s usually after a couple of months that we believe we’re going to change and then nothing has. So we give up. I don’t know if that’s happened to you. Though, if it has, join the club. You are perfectly normal.

Now is the time to make real changes. It’s time to stop being normal and start being who you were meant to be. Inside each one of us is a special power that will enable us to go further than we ever believed we could. You have that. It was there when you were born and then it got squashed as you started to grow up. Other normal people may have told you to stop being so different. They may have indicated to you that you should conform.
