They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom. ~Confucius


Making New Year’s resolutions is a custom for many. The fitness salons are crowded at the beginning of the year with eager patrons trying to undo years of neglect and bad habits.

Did you ever think about the fact that you can change whenver you wish. The beginning of your new year is not restricted by a calendar. You can change whenever you decide to do so.

I remember one October when I decided to change my eating habits, start exercising and lost in 20 lbs in a few months. Within 6 months I was able to fit into my ideal size again, and felt so good about myself.

Another year, I decided to follow my childhood dream to get a doctorate. I didn’t even know the full import of that degree when I was a child but I just knew I wanted to get one. When I decided to follow that childhood dream it was March. My first step was to inquire about details of a grant program I saw on a bulletin board.

What is it you want to do that you’ve neglected too long?

You don’t have to wait until January 1st or any other calendar date. Whenever you’re ready and your consciousness has the go-ahead, your new year begins.

What will it be?

Do you have some goal to pursue? This day is a good day to get started. It doesn’t have to be a big start. Start with just the commitment to follow your dream, your goal.

Then do one thing.

That’s all.

One thing.

It might be a phone call to get information. Or an email to submit an application.

Whatever your goal, don’t wait until the end of the year on the calendar. Any day can be the end of your old year and the start of your new year.

Were you waiting for permission?


I hereby grant you permission to start your new year today.
