“You are not limited to the person you wound up being, the person you think you are. You can create a way of being for yourself that currently would be unrecognizeable for you as really being you, and have that way of being be authentically who you are.” –Werner Erhard
Yes, we have the grand (or not) plans made (or not) of the results we intend to accomplish in the New Year.
What if the true source of those results, however, is not what we’ll do to achieve them, but who we’ll BE in the fulfillment of them?
Sure, actions must be taken. Yet BEING shapes and colors those actions.
If BEING precedes results, then we might put our annual ritual of creating New Year possibilities focus there.
Who can you BE that will have your next January Self be unrecognizeable to who you are now?
“For what it’s worth…it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again.” –F. Scott Fitzgerald
