A Leadership Minute: A New Day
I know this comes a little late, but let me welcome you into the year 2012!
Your 2011 may have been a fabulous year with many breakthroughs and achievements; a time that you would like to remember, or it could have been a time of challenges, hardship and suffering in your life.
Whatever it is, it is in the past. Now in 2012, you start with a clean slate! Your future lies before you; awaiting you to create the destiny which you have been wanting to create.
There are no blemishes in your 2012 yet, it’s all up to you how you want 2012 to happen for you!
There’s a saying that I find most true: Your life changes when your thinking changes.
You might come into 2012 hoping for some bigger, some greater things to happen in your life, but always remember that nothing will change, until you decide to change! To change anything in your world today, you are the first one that must.
Yes, don’t expect to have better relationships, a better career, a better business unless you are ready to upgrade and change yourself.
To expect different results from similar action is insanity, says Anthony Robbins.
So let me ask you now: What do you want to see in your 2012? What goals have you set for yourself this year?
Remember, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. If there is one thing right you should do for 2012; that is to plan how you want to spend it!
Don’t let the tides toss you around like an aimless raft in the sea; set your sails and create your destiny today!
To your success,

Recommended Books and Resources
Put your Dream to the Test will inspire and help you set realistic goals to achieve the life of your dreams.
In John Maxwell’s book, he shares stories of people who have followed their dream and gone on to achieve them. I personally have found it really inspiring; really, what better than stories of others to spur us on?
His book is divided into chapters, each asking you a question to help guide you toward finding a dream in your life that is worth going after. If you want a banging 2012, I humbly suggest you can start by reading this book.
You can check his product out in Amazon.
