"There are greater things to be achieved in every New Year, and each and everyone must prepare themselves to be great, not by words of the mouth, but by a lot of sacrifices." – Michael Bassey Johnson

Firstly, a massive Happy New Year to you and your family! We farewell what has been an extremely difficult and challenging year, with adversities at an extent we have never faced before. COVID-19 has completely changed the complexion of the way we live, and there is still much to be done with containing the virus before we are able to return to the sort of normality we are used to. Be it on a global scale, a national level, or even just on a personal level, adversity and challenge is always going to be part and parcel of life though. In this knowledge, it then comes back to how we deal with it. We can choose to curl up in a ball, shut the door on life, and hide ourselves away from the world, in the false hope that things will get better by themselves. We can wave our hands in the air, play the victim of life, whinge, complain, and again, live in the false hope that things will get better by themselves. But what we should be doing though is embracing the adversities and challenges that life throws at us, be seeking the opportunity of what life is trying to teach us, and be proactive in using the potential within us to be creating a solution, as it's by doing so that we learn, grow, develop, and mature, in life. That experience helps strengthen us, and can ultimately help lead us to success. Despite whatever challenges and adversities lie ahead for us in 2021, with the right attitude, behavior, and mindset, this year can become one of great success, satisfaction, fulfillment, happiness, and prosperity for us. The new year always brings us great opportunity to identify what we desire for our future, what goals we want to achieve, and how we wish to live our life. It can be a time where we set resolutions, but for the vast majority of people, such resolutions don't last any longer than February, making them fruitless. We need to gain a clear understanding of exactly what our main goal in life is, to achieve. It needs to be a goal that drives us, and that drive will only ever be present if we have an internal emotional attachment to what we want to achieve. It needs to be a goal that we would do anything for, in order to achieve it, one that we will never allow ourselves to give up on. It needs to be a goal that pushes us to continually persevere and remain resilient, even despite all the failures, setbacks, rejections, and challenges, we face along the journey. Once we can get clear on such a goal, then we need to start doing the hard work. We need to be making changes, taking risks, making sacrifices, and applying ourselves to the actions that are working towards that goal. There are a few years of hard work and sacrifice ahead of us, but in the long run, it will well and truly be worth it. The thing is, now is the time to start that journey! Now is the time to set that goal, and start working on creating a future that is blessed with success, happiness, satisfaction, fulfillment, and prosperity, for ourselves. Despite all that's happened in years gone by, today becomes a totally fresh start. You deserve all the rewards and blessings that life can bring, but only you can prove you are indeed worthy of that, and again, that is all dependent on your attitude, behavior, and mindset. 2021 can become the year that you positively transformed your life! Here are 10 quotes to inspire you to get motivated for the new year, and to start taking action on building a future that is filled with success, happiness, and prosperity.
