The Mistake in ‘Claiming’ a New Year

I’m teasing the peeps I know on social media that ‘instead of claiming 2018, just go ahead and take care of business’. I didn’t exactly say those exact words, but doesn’t it just puzzle you that folks online will make these declarations only to find themselves making the same declarations the following year? For example:

“It’s 2016. I’m going to claim this year as my own. I’m going to speak it into existence.”
“It’s 2017. I’m going to claim this year as my own. I’m going to speak it into existence.”
“It’s 2018. I’m going to claim this year as my own. I’m going to speak it into existence.”
“It’s 2019. I’m going to claim this year as my own. I’m going to speak it into existence.”
“It’s 2020. I’m going to claim this year as my own. I’m going to speak it into existence.”

And so on, and so on…..

I’m finding out that instead of establishing a big goal or task early in the new year, it’s best to accomplish it piece by piece. Attempting to go for the ‘home run’ is a surefire way to discourage you and cause you to consider putting it off until ‘tomorrow’ which we know may never come.

Yes, this may be your year but take it easy. As it is said, ‘slow and easy wins the race’ and it will help take care of your plans for 2018.

Good luck in making this new year yours! Make it the best for yourself and others!
