What does this poster mean to you? In the journey you are on one about finding yourself in 2013 or creating yourself? Looking inward is quite valuable, however, without moving in new directions, taking on challenges, having adventures, testing yourself, breaking old habits and patterns, moving out of your comfort zone, your personal, professional physical or social growth will be stunted. Why not consider venturing into new, unfamiliar territory to explore upgrading your skills, friends, marriage, work productivity and whatever else your heart desires. Make plans for the year, follow through and then………..affirm and validate yourself for your efforts. To build these new circuits in your brain, you will need to practice. Pay attention to your inner dialogue and develop a positive and optimistic voice to encourage you to seek your best self. These efforts will help to make your life more fulfilling and an adventure. A mantra to consider, “I embrace change.” “Bring it on.” Turn toward opportunities, say yes and try new things.
