    I love this motto created by Barrie Davenport: Live boldly and bloom to your fullest potential by taking small but fearless daily actions in the direction of your dream

    I think it captures the essence of what I’m trying to create, so I’ll definitely try to live by this in 2013 :D

    Take chances.

    I will not allow myself to sit back and do nothing to further my career/work skills. I will ‘take the bull by the horn’ and learn what skills are necessary to move ahead, no matter how nervous it makes me.

  • JadePenguin

    I’ll have to go with something I’ve only recently started to realise…

    “Happiness is a choice” :)

    • http://www.ffufi.net/mindflight Ffion

      I realised this at sixteen and the following years were absolute magic. I’ve somehow lost sight of this fact through difficult times in the recent years, but it is true, happiness is a choice.

      Thank you for inspiring me. I’m hoping I can find my way back onto that path. :) Wishing you all the best for the new year!

  • Jenn

    My motto. Funny that this is today’s question…. My motto came to me earlier today.

    Do it with purpose.

    Meaning when I do something, do it, commit to it and stay focused on it until it’s done. Dive in feet first, tackle it head on, and don’t allow for distractions.

    “inch by inch and everything’s a cinch.”

    I don’t know who coined this phrase but I love it. I am committed to making small progress each day throughout 2013 on my big goals. I may be making minor progress day by day but after months all that progress will add up and I will achieve what I want.

      Nice one Matt “inch by inch and everything’s a cinch.” :clap:

  • Rosie

    Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain. :) I love this quote I always have it around me and also to smile and take chances, life’s too short to miss an oppertunity :) Happy new year everyone!!! :)

    • http://www.mindset-coaching.com Dolly Yeo

      Hi Rosie I love this too – Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.! :clap:

  • Amanda

    Hmm…my motto for 2013: Strive for excellence, while truly enjoying my life, my friends/parents/teachers and above all, myself.

  • Sejal

    Life is Magic.

    I’m not sure if I heard this somewhere or just made it up. But its something I need to believe.
    I need to believe that there is more to life than mundane routine.
    I need to believe I can wake up every morning and be excited about living because I know the universe has infinite possibilities and I can’t wait to experience them.
    I need to believe I can master my life, ride the waves as opposed to being overwhelmed.
    I need to believe to a point where life will seem…. almost magical…
