Two Choices That Can Make Next Year Be Your Best Yet

Towards the end of the year, we often get a moment of reflection. After the holidays a new year rolls around, and it is the perfect time for a fresh start. The end of a year is time to look back on the past year and think about all that might have been achieved. You might be looking back and thinking about what hasn’t been achieved either. For many people, the new year can be a little upsetting because of the latter. They might think of the things that didn’t happen for them or the things that they missed. But things can turnaround. There are plenty of things that we can do to make sure that next year we won’t have the same regrets. The best part? It only requires two choices. Here are the two choices you need to make and how they can help you to have the best year of your life next year.

Gratitude
Many studies around the world have shown the some of the happiest and successful people in life, are the ones that have an attitude of gratitude. Being positive and thankful for all you have is so important. It can affect all aspects of your life. Having an attitude of gratitude is a choice, though. It is hard for anyone to just be naturally happy or grateful for everything in their life. But being able to be positive in whatever situation you are presented with, is a choice. You have to choose to maintain a positive attitude, not giving up is important.

Look at the people around you. Do you know people that are so happy and grateful for all they have? We all know people that are happy in their work because it means that have a job. We all know people that take each day as it comes and embraces it. They appreciate their health and like to help others. They like to work and don’t feel any kind of entitlement. How much nicer is it to be around people like that? On the flip side, we all know a few ‘Debbie Downers,’ right? The people that just suck the energy out of the room and the ones that blame everyone else for their circumstances. The people that chose to be a victim all of the time and resent having to work or help others aren't the best people to be around. So it goes to show that you can have similar circumstances, but you can choose to look at the circumstances differently. When you choose positivity and gratitude, it will make your life so much better and more fulfilling.

Need to Learn

When we embrace learning, in whatever form, then it means our life will be so much more rich. It will mean that failure isn’t the end, but something that we can learn from. It also means that you will improve your life. If you learn at every opportunity and work hard, you will have much more options in life and are more likely to succeed. Choosing to have a need to learn means you appreciate the world more and it will make such a difference to you in the coming year.

Confidence. It’s a word that nearly every woman uses to describe anyone but herself. To be confident, you have to be secure within yourself. You have to believe in yourself. When you’re at work or with your friends, it’s likely that you feel envious of those who come across as confident and together, when actually most people are totally faking it and just as insecure and worrisome as you are. But, what makes someone confident? Is it the clothes that they wear? Is it the security of their bank account? Is it a sheer rejection of anything that resembles conformity, so that they can be happy with exactly who they are? It’s likely a huge mix of all of those things. It’s often far easier to focus on flaws than it is to focus on what makes you beautiful, which is why confidence is such an issue among women.
