Bringing Out The Champion In You In 2007

Its a new year and a new beginning, everybody says but how true it is really depends on you.
Maybe this is hard for you to believe because you aren't satisfied with the life you're living today. Well, your present circumstances don't determine your future. There are plenty examples to prove this.

Think of where these people started in life and how they've ended up: Bill Gates, Stevie Wonder, Helen Keller, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Eckhart Tolle, Anthony Robbins, Steven Speilberg, Julia Roberts, Colonel Sanders, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Ghandi (the obvious choices), most professional athletes, most professional musicians, the list is endless.

They all started out as babies with nothing but personal passion to fuel them on to creating wonderful lives. They all took different roads to climb their individual mountains of success, but they all got there by being focused and by taking action consistently. They all got there by reaching out and bringing out the champion in them.

An ancient Chinese proverb says, "If we don't change where we're going we'll probably end up there." Do you want to end up where you're headed right now?

Think about what it would look like for you to be a champion in your life. Take action in that direction, no matter how small, to start creating it today.

As simple as it sounds, just taking one small step in this direction can lead you to the life you really want. Every destination you've arrived at started with one step whether it was in the right or wrong direction.

If you ever look at your life and think, "How did I get here and how do I get out?" then this simple step may open the door to the path you're looking for.

Are you ready to take that step in 2007? Who knows this year can truly be that new beginning for you.
