Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Always do your best……..each new year is an opportunity to take your life to the next level of excellence.  It is a time to reflect and review. A time to rejuvenate our mind, bodies, and spirit and it is a time when we must be brutally honest with ourselves and commit to doing what we know we must.  There is no point in having New Year’s Resolutions…….they are merely another form of procrastination.  We need to establish five big goals for the year.  Five goals that span all areas of your life.  Five goals that stretch you, and contribute to making you a better you.

You see, the way to an extraordinary life is to explore ourselves, to understand our capacity for excellence, to raise the bar in all areas of our life and to commit to the actions that will help us to achieve our goals.  We cannot call it a successful life if we pour all of our efforts into one area of our lives, leaving the other parts to fend for themselves.  Every part of your life deserves to experience the best you have to offer……and that means showing leadership at home, at work, and at play.  Each of us has the potential and opportunity for success.  It takes just as much effort to lead an unproductive life as it does an effective life.  Decide today where you need to invest in your life…..and then take the action that will start you on that path.  It is never the absence of things that makes you unhappy, it is the absence of vision.

Mahatma Gandhi said “One cannot not do right in one department of life whilst he is occupied in doing wrong in another. Life is one indivisible whole.  We need to show leadership in all areas of our lives.”
