Start of a new year…what will it bring.

Written by on January 29th, 2013 – 1 Comment

It is a start of a new year. Most of us have resolutions that we try to keep. As for myself, I have been reflecting on the past year. What I am going to try to improve in 2013? What should I build on and is important to me? Some of the best advice I was ever given was to reevaluate things every year or couple years.

As I get older, I am slowly figuring out what is important in my life. I have met so many incredible people in the past two years that have influenced my life. Most of us have to take a lot into consideration when we make decisions in our lives. My advice; be selfish. Do something that will benefit your life. Most of us have been through so much, so do something that will make you happy. It could be a trip of some sort to get away and escape reality for a little while. For others, it could be a complete change or something little. Change at times is frightening, because people are afraid of the unknown. As from my own personal experience, change has brought everything in my life….believe me…keep on changing until you find what is right for your life because no one else will. Change will not come easy for many of us. We will fall many times (metaphorically, and literally for some of us) before we take a step forward. Know what it is going to take to make 2013 a better year and go for it; you be surprised at what could happen.

One of the most inspirational videos that I have ever watched was the 2005 Stanford University commencement speech by Steve Jobs (co-founder of Apple). I recommended this speech to all of my friends, and I am now recommending this speech to all of you. This speech really hits home. I hope that this year brings good fortune to all of us. Keep up the battle.

    Good advice Mike concerning everyday change and viewing that Steve Jobs commencement speech at Stanford was a change already for me when I was never a fan of Apple and Steve Jobs when he was alive and I’ll never forget the comment he made when asked about Apple products being made in China Steve says if Ipads were being made in America consumers would have to pay $35 more for an Ipad. Big f’n deal it would have benefitted North America and would have kept jobs here but it was always the bottom line with Jobs no matter how inferior the product but that’s how it is in business all together unfortunately.Glad that the Apple monopoly lost top spot in the market nrecently Anyways was a good speech.
