Be The Author Of Your Life

“We will open the book.  It’s pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

I’ve spent the past few days thinking about what I want to see in my life this coming year.  At the top of the list is a fully funded IRA, a healthier body, and a vacation in the Caribbean.  In preparing for writing out the script, I am looking at the steps necessary to reach those goals.  I’ve been researching IRA’s, comparing a traditional one with the Roth.  I’ve rearranged my exercise room to make it more enticing.  And I have been looking at resorts in some of my favorite vacation spots.  Once I narrow my choices down I will create my written goal.  My plan is to have all of my goals written down by December 31st.

You might be saying times are tough, this isn’t going to be a good year to set lofty goals for yourself.  To that I say, I can achieve anything that I can believe.  We’ve seen millionaires emerge from tough times before.  It’s a matter of choices that determines success not circumstances.  So what do you wish to see for yourself in the coming year?  Get excited about the possibilities!  Do your research.  Then get it written down and start the New Year with a renewed sense of optimism!

Wishing you much happiness and success!


  1. Great post. A written plan is half the battle! And I am always telling my clients – write the BIO you want to present about yourself, then just do the things you say about yourself. It will be done!
