“Not everything begins good, but everything good begins.”
One of the most destructive things we as humans do is the failure to begin. New beginnings come in various shapes and sizes: some are good, some are bad, some are small, some are big, some are constructive while others are destructive and that is the power of New Beginnings.
Small and big beginnings arise day in and day out. When you rise in the morning, it may not seem like a new beginning, but it is, and how you start matters often determines, how you will handle the whole day. Contrast the day you wake up excited and ready to embrace the day’s events, versus the day you rise all grumpy. The day you wake up excited, look into the mirror and feeling up to the task, versus the day you wake up feeling terrible about yourself. On which day do you accomplish the most? On which day do you make the greatest impact? That’s the power of new beginnings.
Every cause has an effect and every beginning has an end, which has a result. That new habit of managing weight, time or finances wisely can be a constructive New Beginning, while indulging in that new addiction can be a destructive New Beginning. While a constructive beginning will build your life, a destructive beginning will ruin a part of you. That’s how powerful new Beginnings are.
New Beginnings does not necessarily mean a fresh new start, it’s just a given chance to say, “This is not how my story is going to end.“.Just like Carl Bard says, “Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”Whatever did not start too well, we may not have the power to start a fresh start, but we can have a brand new ending. What will your marriage look like in the next few years? What will your business look like in the near future? Who will you become in the next five years? All these are determined by the decision to have a New Beginning now.
I don’t know what the New Beginning in your life is this New Year but whatever it is, make it constructive and begin with Victory. Above all, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF NEW BEGINNINGS. To get a male perspective on this, please read Mitch’s post HERE
