On Beginnings

Every day is a new beginning. Those simple words bring excitement or dread to the possibilities the beginnings hold. William James wrote, “It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.” It is your attitude at the front end that influences the results at the back end. “ John Maxwell reminds us of the saying, “All is well that ends well.” Acknowledging that this is true, he suggests another truth, “All is well that begins well.” It is this positivity of mindset and purpose that sets the foundation for ending well.

May you fill your days with joyous endings and new beginnings. Take learnings from the endings, and let go of the past. Begin a new page or a new chapter in your life’s magnificent journey. Fill it with excitement, challenge, possibilities and dreams. You have so much more to bring to yourself and life. “The start of something new brings the hope of something great. Anything is possible,” writes an unknown author. May Louis L’Amour’s counsel echo in your ears, “There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.” Let your life’s story be a relentless and passionate pursuit of new beginnings. And remember, all is well that begins well. Your best is yet to come.

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
