The new year is a great opportunity to start everything from the beginning and improve your life. You have 365 days to try something new and extraordinary. There’s no need and time to dwell on the failures of the previous year. You’d better begin this year by setting new priorities and goals. This year many people will try to increase their incomes, find love and move up the promotional ladder.
Unfortunately, you may not reach all your dreams, because success requires constant and radical changes of your outlook and inner world. If you realize that the previous year was absolutely unsuccessful and full of negative events, you shouldn’t think that your karma is bad. It means that you’re still going down the wrong path. As soon as you understand it, you’ll be able to wave goodbye to your troubles and fears, since only those people who work hard and believe in their potential abilities can make progress in their lives.
Frankly speaking, I don’t believe in horoscopes and predictions. I’m sure that every person has equal chances to develop themselves this year. There’re no favorable and unfavorable years or days. We all live on the same planet and have all resources and tools to make miracles, no matter what year it is. I want to draw your attention to the things that keep a modern person chronically worried and strained. Do your best to eliminate them this year if you want to become stronger and change yourself for better. You should realize that it won’t be easy, because the hardest battle is against yourself. Don’t be scared of going through difficulties. The game is worth the candle.
1. Filler words
Some people believe that human eyes are the mirror of the soul. It’s a good idea, but I have a bit another point of view. I think that your language and communicative skills reflect and express your outlook. The purity of your language shows that you’re highly intelligent and developed personality.
Nowadays, a great number of people cannot imagine their language without useless filler words. If you start listening carefully to what other people say and how they do it, you’ll notice dozens of annoying words and sounds, which make people clumsy at expressing their thoughts and emotions. Have you ever tried to eliminate the habit of using filler words in your language? If you respect yourself, you should remove obscene words and fillers. Step by step, you can make your fluent speech rich on meaningful and beautiful words. Just try to reduce the frequency of fillers and then you’ll forget about them once and for all.
2. A habit of comparing yourself to others
You may not know but this habit is extremely dangerous. If you’re very susceptible and suspicious person by nature, you should rid yourself of this negative habit. When you compare yourself to others, you may either enjoy the feeling of superiority or damage your self-esteem.
We all live in a society where people are divided into two groups: poor and rich. It means that their lives are different in many aspects. Nowadays there’re many irresistible temptations around us. I’ve noticed that social networks are a significant part of this problem. Every day people add millions of photos in order to demonstrate their success and colorful life. They don’t show their failures and constant problems. When you’re surfing the profiles of your friends you can see their smiles, interesting adventures and prosperity. It appears as if you’re the only person on this planet who is sitting in front of the computer and wasting the most productive years of your life. That’s not true. They may have the same issues and worries too. Instead of analyzing the lives of your friends, you’d better focus on your accomplishments and try to make appropriate efforts to make your dreams come true.
3. Your past
Your past is just the history of your previous life. I still cannot understand why do people repeat their mistakes and expect to see or get something new. Maybe they yearn to justify themselves and correct all wrongs of the past? There’s no need, because no one and nothing can exert influence on the past. Wise people tend to work hard in order to change their present moment for the better and make a contribution to their future. People who cannot take control of their past memories are limited, because the burden of the past doesn’t let them start a new story in their life.
Your past is the chain of events, actions and stages of life that changed your personality either for good or for worse. If you dare to let your past be the past, you’ll be able to open up new perspectives in 2015. Keep in mind that constant focusing on the past is the habit of unsuccessful people.
Envy is a destructive habit of almost every person in the world. It can easily spoil friendship and other types of relationship, because no one likes to communicate with hidden enemies. If you want to overcome envy, you should ask yourself the following questions: “Why do I envy others? Would that give me an opportunity to reach my goals?” You should realize that envy can only double your problems and sufferings. Try to eliminate it and don’t believe people who persuade you that envy can galvanize you into action. Concentrate on your life, career and hobbies. You won’t have vacant time to envy other people. Don’t forget to protect yourself against the envy of evil-wishers. All you have to do is to stay away from potentially envious people this year.
This year you should make high stress resistance your aim. Those who think that sedatives can handle the situation are seriously mistaken. Nowadays there’re many other effective and safe ways to reach calmness and moderation. Massages and other healing therapies can improve your nervous system, but the source of your worries and anxiety is your mind. You won’t achieve a desirable result until you start changing your mindset. Your fears and deep inner conflicts are the main enemies of your life. In 2015 your main task is to think positively, because it’s the best remedy against stress and depression.
I’m sure that 2015 will be the most successful and productive year for you and your dearest and nearest. Focus on your self-development and you’ll be able to broaden your horizons. The main thing is to be brave enough to face the challenges of the year and never hold out against difficulties.
