Embrace These 3 Elements in the New Year

~ More great resources just like the ones you’ll find in Nanci’s book Fresh Hope … Cleveland: Resources to Help You Navigate through Unsettled Times.

As you move into the new year, your life will be better —  richer and fuller if you learn to value and apply these three simple yet important elements:

  • Connect with Others ~ Socializing fends off isolation which is especially important during the cold winter months. Did you know that being with others will also help you live longer? It’s true. Read about the value of socializing in the book The Blue Zones.  (I have this book listed in my book.) The folks that live in these “Blue Zones” are over 100 years of age! You’ll be amazed at what they can do!
  • Exercise ~ Taking a walk, running, swimming, playing racquetball etc. all reduce blood pressure and stress. Exercise also increases your metabolism which will help you to lose weight! You’ll also sleep better as a result of working out!
  • Focus on the good already present in your life ~ Having a positive focus will help you enjoy your life more. One of the best things about being positive is it’s a powerful magnet that will help you attract some great opportunities and friends!

Stay Safe Tonight on New Year’s Eve!

Wishing You a Very Happy and Healthy New Year!

God Bless You!

Inspiration for 2013

~ More about Nanci’s new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

Sometimes you look over the past year and wonder what happened. You had such a clear vision or high hopes and yet things did not materialize the way you had planned. Then again you may have discovered late in the game you needed to institute Plan B ~ an alternative plan. Or sometimes you may have felt that you didn’t know what to do at all which brings confusion as you approach a new year. All these things can make you feel discouraged and less than positive about yourself. If you can identify with any of these issues, then you need to review the past year in a different sort of way. Here’s how.

Perspective for 2012 + the New Year

1. We are always too hard on ourselves. Instead of reviewing what went wrong and why, review ALL the things you did RIGHT this past year! Hold on to those good thoughts as you head into 2013.

2. You are not the same person today mentally, physically, intellectually, or spiritually that you were when you started 2012. My guess is, you are a lot stronger. Give yourself credit for growing and maturing and look carefully at all the things you learned and how you grew from the challenges that came your way. Recount some of your brightest moments and hold your head up high.

3. Life is often about waiting for the right opportunity to come along at the right time. That can mean not giving up even when it seems like nothing is happening. Be determined this year not to give up. Set reasonable goals for yourself for 2013 and have faith in God’s ability to guide you.

Are These 3 Points in Nanci’s Book?

If you’re wondering if these points are mentioned in my book the answer is no. However, the text shares lots of great strategies that will help guide you as you WAIT for things to materialize in your life.

Here’s to a very bright New Year filled with Hope and Opportunity!

God Bless You!
