January is the time of year when we all begin to make projective promises about what we plan on doing. Weather you call them resolutions, goals, or numbers added to your bucket list we all partake in this projective process, every year. Every year you promise yourself, that this one will be different. As we trot into the New Year everyone stands on their high-horse shouting, "This is my year", but is it?
What makes this year so different from the last? What happened over night on December 31 to January 1 that made everything so different? In your drunken slumber did you finally realize your potential?
The explanation is simple, on the eve of the New Year belief, faith and hope are at there highest. As the night turns into morning, something is renewed in our spirit to believe again. The broken hearted believe in love, the jobless believe in the economy, and the sinners turn over a new leaf, but how long does this last?
Often times as the first flower blooms many of us have misplaced our beliefs. We no longer have faith in the New Year or hope that it will be any better than the last. As our goals and projections don’t manifest quickly enough, we forget about all that we once promised to ourselves. We simply forget and since most of us don’t write it down, it’s easy to un-think a task you were never held accountable for.
Whose suppose to hold us accountable, if we are too weak in ourselves to finish the tasks we set for ourselves? Many of us don’t have a community to hold us accountable. We don’t trust or respect each other enough to allow someone else to challenge us in our goals. So who can help you? If you allow me to, I can.
I stand before you simply to say, take your place. Wherever you want to be, take your place. Align yourself with opportunities that will award you a spot in your destiny. If you don’t believe that you have a purpose, reach out to others to help you find it, I’m here. There are plenty of people within arms reach willing and waiting to help you, I’m waiting. There are movements ready to lend you a helping hand, we’re here. Join us, take your place.
I don’t want to be another person encouraging you to be your best in January and by April lack faith in your abilities as you may not have accomplished your goals, but I am not that person. I am here to aid you, to guide you in all the possible ways that I can to make you a better person for our community as a whole. I am commited to you. I pledge to hold you accountable, for anything that you want me to in order for you to reach your goals.
Let's Ignite Change,
