“Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” – Brad Paisley

Yes! You are the author of this book and you can write as you wish, but remember that this is your book; you will need to read it again sometime and therefore make sure it is a good one.

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” – Carl Bard

Absolutely true! You don’t have to wait for the new year to make resolutions. Every day is a new beginning and every little change towards your personal growth is a step in the right direction.

“If you flee from the things you fear, there’s no resolution.” – Chuck Palahnuik

Fear is one’s worst enemy. How often have we shied away from making changes in our life, such as getting out of a bad marriage or standing up for what we think is right? Take the next step and make a difference in your life or in someone else’s life.

“Let all the failures of your past year be the best guide in the new year.” – Mehmet Murat Ildan

Someone once said “Failure is a stepping stone to success”. There is no better teacher than failures. Instead of  wallowing in your failures, rise above them, learn from them and let them guide you in the new year.

“Just try new things. Don’t be afraid. Step out of your comfort zones and soar, all right?”

With some time available at the beginning of the new year, when everyone tends to be relaxed, is the best time to examine if you are getting far too deep into that comfort zone.

“A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dream come true.” – Greg S. Reid

Yes, It is a no-brain-er. A dream is great, but it is not enough if you need to achieve something. You need to convert your dream to specific goals with specific dates and have a plan and act on those goals. This one is a gem and one of my favorites.

“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” – Dalai Lama

Our world is not monolithic but very diverse and a beautiful place. Travel to a new place you have never been before. Experience different cultures and in the process, learn about yourself. Be more tolerant, more forgiving, and accept others as they are.

“One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this — To rise above the little things.” – John Burroughs

You may not be on talking terms with your sister because of something that happened a while back which you don’t even remember clearly. Even if you do remember, do not be bogged down about the little things that hold you back personally or professionally. You need to just let them go. They are not worth your time and sometimes not worth losing your precious relationships either.

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I used to meet this person in the elevator every morning at work in my previous job. He always greeted everyone in the elevator with a huge smile. “How do you manage to be so upbeat every single day?”, I asked him one day. What he said next, remained with me forever. “I consider every single day as the best day of my life and there is no if’s or but’s about it”, he said with his trademark smile. His positive attitude was infectious and it rubbed on all of us who, he greeted in the elevator. I am sure we were all a bit more optimistic than we were before we entered the elevator and that is exactly the power of  positive thinking!

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” – Michael Altshuler

You are the only person that can control your life and your destiny. So make it count.

I hope you enjoyed these beautifully positive new year quotes. Finally, here is wishing all of you a happy and a healthy new year!
