“I’m So Excited…..

January 13, 2022

and I just can’t hide it”*

At the end of 2021, we excitedly made resolutions/promises to ourselves with an eye towards reaching our dreams and goals.

We began the New Year 2022, with lots of enthusiasm towards reaching those dreams and goals.  Inevitably, for most, that enthusiasm will wane over time.

Here are some thoughts for keeping the fire burning

There are lots of new beginnings.  There is a new year, a new month, a new week, a new day, hour, minute……  Each new is another opportunity to reignite the enthusiasm you had at the beginning of the last new.  If we celebrate each new as another opportunity, we can renew that enthusiasm and keep it burning.  So cherish the new of every new, and renew with each and every new.

“The beginning is embedded in the end, and the end is embedded in the beginning”. – Sefer Yetzirah 1:7

With every new, remind yourself of your dreams and goals.  Think about what the goal was and why it’s important to you.  Visualize how it will feel when you reach that goal.  Create a word or mantra as a reminder to be regularly repeated and throw on another log.  With those reminders you will keep the enthusiasm in the present.

Most Important 

Be grateful for each New that you are given!

Remember the words of the Tightrope Walker who said when asked how he gets across

“It’s simple. Before I begin, I find an object on the other end and focus on it. I don’t dare take my eyes off the object while I’m walking. I don’t look to the right, I don’t look to the left, I don’t look down.  As long as I focus on my goal, I make it across”.

Now with all that enthusiasm, remember that it is the Doing!!  “Wishing and hoping… and planning and dreaming”**,  – “Won’t get you where you want to go”***.  It’s the doing that will get you the results.

If it’s worth starting, it is worth that much more when you finish

Your power is in your follow through 

Your persistence says how much you want it
