Going Forward

optimism going forward

Are you ready to go forward in positive, productive and prosperous ways? It may be time to sit down and decide which habits, people and places are working positively in your life and which ones are not. As Zig Ziglar says, “Is it time for a check up from the neck up?” 

1. Is it time to take a good long, honest, soul-searching look at where you are now and where you were last year at the same time?

Make two lists. List A – what is different, new and improved? List B – what’s the same? Then ask yourself, “Am I happy with what has remained the same?”

If you’re still worried or talking about the same things you were at this time last year, you’re not going forward. The only way to create effective and lasting change is by taking positive and consistent action.

Solution: Develop an action plan to become more proactive with what you would like to change in your life. Work your plan step-by-step each day.


2. If you are in a relationship ask yourself – If I were suddenly alone, would I be able to maintain the lifestyle to which I’ve become accustomed?

Write out an inventory of the assets you currently have and that are an enjoyable part of your lifestyle. How important are these assets to you? Are you the provider of these assets?

If you find yourself realizing that someone else is responsible for the majority of your support, you may want to begin looking for ways to become more financially self-sufficient.

Solution: You can begin by getting professional advice from a financial advisor, career counselor or other knowledgeable professionals. 

It may be October but it’s not too soon to begin thinking about your hopes, plans and goals for 2010. You deserve the best life has to offer!

A word of wisdom: “I wish you all the joy that you can wish.” William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
