Set Your Future on Fire for 2014

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” — Mahatma Gandhi

As we turn the page of the calendar year, change is your chance.

It’s your chance for a fresh start.

It’s your chance to do great things — if you own it, if you embrace it, and if you use change as your personal platform of opportunity and growth.

You can use change as your personal platform to boldly go where your have not ventured before.

Change is your chance to slough off bad habits, bad thinking, and bad feelings.

And, it’s your chance to choose to put your bags and baggage down.

Change is also your chance to choose to feel a little lighter as you step into the new year, and let the weight of yester-year go.

Create a Vision that Ignites You

Change is also your chance to set your Future on Fire with a vision that ignites you.

You lift yourself up in empowering ways when you illuminate what you really want, deep down inside, and you create a fresh and vibrant vision bursting at the seams with your hopes and possibilities.

And, your Future on Fire renews, rejuvenates, and reminds you what you’re capable of:

Unstoppable you.

And, it’s your aspirational choice that gives you your inspirational voice, to  breathe new life into each new day, in every way, and everything you do.

Your Future on Fire is your inspirational force to be reckoned with, from the inside out.

Draw from Your Strength Within

With your inspirational force as the wind beneath your wings, you see the challenges before you in bold new and exciting ways.

Draw from your strength within, and choose to give your trials all you’ve got.

Use all of you.

Accept the challenge before you:  to treat your work and your service as the ultimate form of self-expression.

Choose to enjoy the journey, no matter what.

Don’t give your choices, your chances, or your power, away.

Choose to create a better life, for you and the lives you touch, one day at a time, one moment at a time, in your own way, a choice at a time.

Go for Your Epic Win and Expand What You’re Capable Of

Change is a chance to try new things, to test yourself, and to expand what you’re capable of.

Change is also your chance to make great things happen and grow along the way.

As Thoreau said, “What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become …”

And change is your chance to build momentum and go for YOUR epic win.

But to do great things, you need to dive deep.

Deep within.

Deep within is where you build clarity and conviction around what truly matters to you.

Deep within is where your private victories are waiting for the chance to challenge you to new heights.

And, deep within is the breeding ground of your big, bold goals that will help you flourish in ways you can’t even expect.

When you embrace the challenges in your life, and rub shoulders with all that you’re capable of, the fire in you burns strong.

That’s the light of your inner greatness shining through.
