New Year’s Resolution by Fred Shadian
A favorite saying of mine goes like this:
“The tragedy in life is not what we can’t do,
but what we don’t know we can do.”
What is one thing you have always wanted to do but you don’t because you fear you won’t succeed?
How will you ever know unless you go out there and test it out.
Every year I set a New Year’s Resolution to learn a new skill.
It could be learning how to play checkers at a mastery level, understanding HTML & WordPress, how to become a long distant runner, walking everyday, fly a kite, ride a bike, learn how to meditate, learn martial arts, how to play a musical instrument, eating healthier
and this year I want to learn how to play GOLF at a peak level.
We all have greatness within us and when we ignite that greatness, we awaken the fire within.
We are able to do and become greater than we ever thought we could.
The key is to remember that feeling, acknowledge it and utilize it for new skills you are about to learn.
So what is something you always wanted to learn or become?
Start right now by doing a quick Wikipedia search on the subject.
Whenever I decide to learn or master a new skill, I experience some challenging moments as I progress through the core fundamentals.
The JOY of learning slowly overpowers the frustration and procrastination of learning something new.
Gradually it becomes a daily habit and then it becomes a lifestyle.
p.s. I would love to hear, what is your New Year’s Resolutions. Please make a comment.
