It’s about that time. Everyone is talking about goals and resolutions. A new year brings anticipation, and hope for new achievements. Psychology studies show that our brains release dopamine (one of four neurotransmitters responsible for happiness) when we anticipate the new and exciting. Maybe that’s why we love a new year so much. It literally feels good to start a fresh new year, full of new possibilities!
Take a moment to reflect on the past year. What things did you want to do? Have you accomplished them? What do you have yet to do to move closer to your goals?
We believe you have all the answers to these questions already. Maybe you’re closer to your goals than you initially think. Because one of the hardest things to do is begin, start, take a step, even if you already have the skills.
Taking the first step on a new journey is difficult because once you do so, the possibility that you might not complete your journey - or … gasp! … FAILURE - arises. If you frame the possibility of failure differently and see it as an opportunity for growth, what could you accomplish this year? With this mindset, what will you start in 2020?
