Where's My Magic Wand?


Happy New Year! We are off and running in 2015!  As I write, the temperature is hovering around 9 (wind chill factor is -7) and the wind is fiercely howling. Hopefully everyone survived the holidays and life is getting back to normal– whatever that is because I haven't figured that one out yet.

It's the beginning of a new year and an opportunity to wipe the slate clean, and start fresh.  When I think of what should be accomplished in 2015, it can be overwhelming and a little bit daunting.  How I wish I had a magic wand!

My goals for this year start with basic principles for a life of success & I shamelessly share thoughts gleaned from a little book by Michael Aviles "A Magic Wand".


"You're in charge"

We can let circumstances rule us or we can take charge and rule our lives from within. -Earl Nightingale

It all starts and ends with you.  We need to take control and assume complete responsibility for our life.  Too many times we make excuses or play the blame game.  One of my favorite authors, Stephen Covey states it best in "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People".  He states "Be proactive, it means more than merely taking initiative.  Among the most important personal choices you can make is to accept complete responsibility for everything you are and everything you will ever be". Brain Tracy takes it even further when he writes " The acceptance of personal responsibility is what separates the superior person from the average person."

So if you are feeling like you need a little help to get things done, like a fairy godmother or little elves working away?   Proudly wave your magic wand & say "If it's going to be, it's up to me".
