January 6, 2016, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Possibility Points

By Darrell Gurney | Blog

Jan 06

“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” –Nido Qubein

The new year has begun, and we’re now 1/52nd closer to resolving to improve all over again.

It’s interesting how much serious thought, weight and even pressure many of us put upon ourselves to recreate, restart, or reformat our lives (e.g., “new years resolutions”) on a January 1 imaginary and arbitrary point in time.

The reality is, we can choose to live into a new possibility at ANY point time, be it Jan. 1, April 23, or 3:45am on August 9.

We began this year with certain circumstances surrounding us that we may seek to better.

We will, for certain, face unexpected and unforeseen circumstances as we move forward.

What if, this year, we give ourselves the capacity to resolve for new possibility over and over and over again…despite the current results and/or circumstances?

Got a possibility point?

“A Scout smiles and whistles under all circumstances.” –Robert Baden-Powell
