Imagine: Your all achievements, relationships, experience and past memories are wiped out. And you are given an opportunity to start it over again.
Ask yourself following questions:
- What would you do this year?
- How would it be different this year?
- What would you change?
Most people would definitely like to change at least something small, some people might like to change everything.
I think this scenario gives people a permission to, if just for a moment, disregard the problems that they might face in bringing that change; it might be in the form of a resistance that they might face or the fear of failure.
Here's to hoping that 2011, gives you that very same permission:
- Do what you like.
- Don't worry about mistakes or errors that you might commit on the way.
- Forget about your past achievement in the sense that they are now your past, build a better future.
- Don't be a Monkey! Make your own decisions. Discussing your problems with others is not an issue, but giving them the control to make decision for you is no genius.
- Realize your true potential, by testing it (not by thinking and only thinking about it!). There is more in life when you both think and act!
- Hey...what is your search for meanings? Have you found one for your life? What is your philosophy for life?
- Realize that mistakes are good, but only when done in a strategic manner.
- Don't fall in love with your ideas, be flexible enough to generate new ones when need be.
- Stop seeking social proof. Have courage to find your own proofs! This is to be alert of the gutter holes on the way...
- Try to understand your confirmation biases, that might have been hurting your decision making process in a way that you are not aware of!
- Don't be a loser in your own eyes. This is very critical. World may try to deride what you do, but this should never let you down in your own eyes. They will get tired of doing this once they realize that you don't care!
- Ignore expert judgments, rather be your own expert.
- Generate an ability to question. Don't be bogged down by the forced beliefs, have the courage to ask facts.
- And at last the most important one: forget who your are, think of who you can be...
