Another year is coming to a close and the another year is on the horizon to bring about new challenges and new opportunities.  I feel that for me, it is always important that I take the time throughout the year and especially at the end of the year, to evaluate myself to determine if I have shown growth during the year.  I try to avoid carrying unhealthy relationships and baggage from one year to the next.  I feel that often times people limit their potential by the number of toxic people that they surround themselves with.  I choose to be vigilant in eliminating people from my circle that are only there to pollute the air with negativity and bad intentions.  Sometimes you got to know when to let go and find a better enviroment to be in.  So keeping with that mind set as each year closes I ask myself, “Is there anything that I would have done or could have done differently to make my life or the life better?”.  Is there anyone that I feel that I need to make a better impression on or build a better relationship with?  Have I been the best person that I can be given the tools that I had to work with?  Once I have gone through those questions, I place my responses into three major categories:  Things that I am willing to keep, things I need let go and things that I need to work on.

My goal is to make the list of things that I need to work on and the things that I need to let go smaller and smaller each year.  The most difficult challenge is letting things go and never picking them back up again.

When setting goals for ourselves and creating milestones, often times we get frustrated along the process of trying to achieve these goals because we have not established a separation between our “Career Goals” and our “Life Goals”.  Although they may appear to be the same, the two can be very different.  Often the two run parallel to one another but may never intersect at all.  I believe that the key to successful planning and accomplishment of your goals is to identify where you see success in your personal life and where you see success for yourself in your career.  Once you have established where you have determined your view of success is in each category, then you create milestones and from them you design plans and steps needed toward how each milestone will be accomplished.

It is very important that you do not let your emotions and personal hang ups determine the altitude of your success.  Conduct a self-inventory to identify what happiness truly means to you.  Do not, and I repeat, do not try to build your happiness and success on a template of someone else’s mark of success.

There comes a point when we may have to accept that our success may not be the success that we originally thought that it would be.  Some people get so caught up in trying to control everything and every element of their lives to the point that they think they know exactly where their success and opportunity is going to come from.  They are so caught up in the picture of success, that they fail to find success or happiness at all.  When the opportunities for success and that ultimate happiness arrives, they miss it because it was not packed quite as they would have hoped it would be.

The challenge is to be open minded and know that all plans change, and the best success in life comes when you are willing to be free to allow yourself to grow and process blessings as they come.
