BEFORE TAKING YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS, LISTEN TO WHAT THE UNIVERSE HAS TO SAY TO YOU.
On the eve of 2013 I should perhaps talk to you about resolutions, but if you allow me, I would rather make a small side comment.
Two weeks ago, I attended a one day business training. As soon as it started, each participants had to pick a card with a written word on it. It was amazing how each card seemed to have been chosen exactly for the person that picked it.
Not a single person hesitated to say that the word was perfectly in line with what they came to seek in the training. We all seem to have received an important message.
Surely, we probably could have felt the same way by picking another word. After all, it’s our personal interpretation that gave life to the message, but is it really important if it’s true or if it’s our own interpratation? What I remember is how meaningful the word was to me. By itself it summed up my past, my present and my future.
By its meaning, the word told me something important about myself. I felt it was saying, “Here’s your problem and here’s your solution”.
I’m extremely grateful that this word found me before I define my projects for 2013. It’s meaning is already influencing my choices and my actions. It’s a beautiful gift that life gave me and I intend to honor it.
