“Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer the goal.” ― Elbert Hubbard

To many of us, the arrival of a new year generates a fresh beginning. It brings anticipation and hopefulness of a clean slate of 365 days to come. New Year is a gift. It’s a blank page waiting for you to write on it.

That said, a new year, is like a new invitation. It comes with new opportunities or new beginnings. So what if you made mistakes and errors last year? So what if you didn’t achieve your set of goals last year? Not all is lost. In fact, maybe nothing is lost at all. The good news is that you have a choice start a fresh!

“When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.” ― Napoleon HillThink and Grow Rich
