2011, a year to create new challenges, new highs, and get up and over it already! ‘It’ equals the year of 2010.
The economy is in the tank, the outlook is bleak, and the silver lining is turning rusty. We have all heard it from one person or several. The economy this, foreclosures that, and whoa is me, blah blah blah. Get over it, the past is the past and there is not a single thing you can do about it.
However, there are many lessons to be learned from all of the past, and that will be the hurdle that needs to be crossed.
For example, on a yearly basis, salmon swim upstream to go and do their thing with their significant other. However, did you ever stop and think about the achievements, blessings and great results this against the current track leads them. They have to battle consistently against the stream and any and all obstacles in their path. From boulders, to tree branches, to moss and your occasional white water rapid areas, they seem to manage just fine on making the trek upstream. However, if you have read anything about this particular route that the salmon take, you will be surprised that most if not all of the salmon make it safetly, give or take a bump or bruise here and there. The story behind that is that each and every one of them learns from the first time they attempted this course.
They each surveyed the course, planned ahead, and went for it. On the route, they were taking dubious notes and burned them into their memory, so that the next time they will not head into the danger zone and yet avoid it with great skill and advancement.
This year, we all need to look back at what went wrong and make the proper corrections and simply get off the sidelines and into the move forward challenge.
I personally challenge you to take the bull by the horns and Get up and Over it already, set your sights on your goals and not only achieve them, but surpass them and don’t look back. One more thing, take dubious notes along the way, you never know what you may learn!
Have a great and prosperous year in 2011!
