We’re in already! It’s incredible how everyone looked forward to entering this particular year. Although 2019 was a great year, everyone seemed weary at the tail end. I know so many will not agree with this statement but I’d ask you to look back and rate yourself. I’m sure you’d have one or two reasons to support me.
It’s the first day of the year (breathe the fresh air), what do you see? Success, Pitfalls, Great milestones or Setbacks, choose yours! In the past, so many plans were made for this year 2020, the Nigerian government weren’t left out either (Vision 2020). I don’t think the plans they set have been actualized (God help us). Drawing out proposals and preparing agendas sounds interesting, however, bringing them to reality usually appears tasking. When the right resources to actualize these dreams are not put in place, it becomes a mirage. You need to understand that things don’t just happen except a miracle appears, specific steps must have been taken by you in the previous years for your vision 2020 to come to life.
It’s not enough to look up to the new year, oh well, it’s here already. What did you do in 2019 to fetch you enormous results in 2020? A farmer plants seeds, cares for the plant from infancy, uproots weeds that hinder its growth and after some time, reaps a bountiful harvest. If he didn’t do all these, will he have a take-home at the end of the day? Look, you’ve got to do something to get something!
Perhaps you fall into the category of those who didn’t prepare, it’s not too late. However, don’t expect to get the same results as those whose plants have germinated. You are to start your preparation now!!! Look into the year and set goals and targets for yourself. Map out your mission statement and start work on it immediately. Take away all impediments and shoot without entertaining fear, remember you have a target. Stay away from negative energy and let your language be SUCCESS.
Kindly note that it cannot be all rosy, so, prepare for unpalatable circumstances. When a sailor predicts there will be a boisterous wind, he does everything possible to ensure the ship isn’t wrecked. As much as you prepare for the good, prepare for the bad too.
I feel something positive about 2020, I can’t explain where that energy is coming from. Lots of good projections have been declared concerning the year. In fact, it looks like this is the year we all have been waiting for all our lives. I believe strongly that huge accomplishments will be made. Hey! Don’t blow it from the beginning.
Ask yourself again: what do I see?
Happy New Year!!!
