Changing your Mindset for a Prosperous New Year

Written by: Muoka Chibuzor and Dr. Chidi Okpaluba

The New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar's year count increments by one. Before the New Year, the Christmas celebration is expected to have taken place according to the Christian calendar. Then you hear people say "we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year".

The word Prosperous New Year tells us that everyone wants a year that is full of breakthroughs, wealth advancement and success in every area of life. Even people who cause public unrest wants a prosperous New Year. This article was written in the interest of all and sundry. We should all know that prosperity begins with a state of mind.

To have a prosperous New Year, there are things one must bear in mind. Perhaps, last year was so okay with you or maybe last year wasn’t all you expected, it wasn’t working according to your plan, things fell apart, you lost hope in what you actually believed in, but you shouldn’t give up because once there is life there is hope. 

If the previous year was awesome for you, it doesn’t mean you should go and buy a sleeping mat this New Year, A New Year comes with new challenges and expectations. Do not forget that people only bring up the past when they are intimidated by the present. Don’t let the present intimidate you, rather intimidate the present, conquer it and engrave your footsteps in the sands of time.

If Plan A didn’t work. The alphabet has 25 more letters! So stay cool. You were actually given this life because you are strong enough to live it. The harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph. Believing in yourself and convincing yourself that something beautiful is going to happen in this New Year is the key to unlocking a prosperous New Year.

The past (Last Year) is gone by time and no longer in existence, practically it's a stack history. Why not believe in the present (New Year) and make out the best from it? When your past calls, don’t answer because it has nothing new to say. The past should be left in the past, otherwise, it can destroy your future. Live life for what tomorrow has to offer, not what yesterday has taken away.

Alarmingly, success does not just come to one’s life because he or she loves the concept. It does not also come because the word success is chewing like gum in the mouth every time. It does not come anyhow or to any one’s life just like that – it is not a free gift offering as atmospheric air.

For a Prosperous New Year, you should imbibe the five D’s of Success and Prosperity.

1. Desire

As a rule, what the heart longs for, the head and hand may attainOrison Swett Marden

You can have, do or be whatever you truly desire Napoleon Hill

Desire is the mechanics. What we get in life is determined by our desire. When you desire success in any area of your life, you have already obtained the fuel that will make it glow without any resistance. Our desire sends out electromagnetic waves from us to the world to identify and pull to us those things we desperately desire or want.

Great, strong and pulsating desires will burn off the glum of the past and the burden of the present. It can withstand every obstacle. It can tear through walls. It wakes you out of bed when your flesh is still weak and wants to sleep.

Clarify your desires for this is what drives you and keeps you totally driven. It is the fire that keeps you up. It is the oil that lubricates the engine of your life. It’s the life of your life. When you have a strong and definite desire, and place all your energy, all your will power and all your effort towards that desire so that it will become a dominating obsession of your life, no force on earth can stop it from coming forth.

A burning desire is needed for a prosperous New Year.

2. Decision

Your life changes the moment you make a new, congruent, and committed decision Anthony Robbins

Decision is the force of our destiny. Our life is the Sum total of decisions we have taken in the past and what we could be in the future will be the total sum of decisions we are taking now. We are our decisions.

Every decision has its own consequences. So before you decide, check out the result of that and make your mind up about living with that result. If you are okay with the result, then go ahead with the said decision and lock into that. Do not delay unnecessarily in taking a decision because decision is power and indecision is powerlessness.

Once a decision is made, begin immediately to take practical steps towards actualizing that decision. We also need commitment and maturity to see that our decision leads us to the desired result.

Your Positive Decisions is the driving force for a prosperous New Year.

3. Determination
"There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, can circumvent, or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul. Gifts count for nothing; will alone is great; All things give way before it soon or late. What obstacle can stay the mighty force of the sea-seeking river in its course, or cause the ascending orb of day to wait? Each well-born soul must win what it deserves. Let the fool prate of luck. The fortunate is he whose earnest purpose never swerves, whose slightest action or inaction serves the one great aim" – Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Determination means knowing what we need to do, taking the decision to do it and ensuring that it is done irrespective of convenience or inconvenience of the task(s) involved. It is the commitment to doing what is planned, it is hanging on the path we have chosen until we reach our desired destination.

So many colorful destinies have been aborted because of the lack of determination. Life does not promise to be without obstacles and challenges rather it promises that if we faint not if we do not give up; we certainly would see our dreams come true.

Therefore know determination, know success because no determination no success. Determination actually means, ‘whatever the cost, I am ready to pay the price’. And as we now, in the marketplace of life, there is a price for everything. Life is like a shop and things are sold according to the value they offer. 

When you want the best of the things in the shop, you pay the premium price for that. Nothing good comes easy, not even prosperity.

Determination will unlock the puzzle for a prosperous New Year.

4. Devotion

A bank never becomes successful until it gets a president who takes it to bed with him.Orison Swett Marden

Devotion is the act of binding oneself intellectually and emotionally to a job or a cause. This means yielding one’s self spiritually, emotionally, psychologically, physically and mentally to what one has chosen or accepted to do.

This also means applying our spirit, mind, soul and body to any course we have identified with. When we yield ourselves to a cause, the cause will yield to us. This is why it is said that people don’t fail because of lack of ability, but because of lack of total yield.

Impossibility does not exist with a man that is totally yielding to a cause. No door can shut against a devoted man, no wall can stand for too long against such a man.

Michelangelo was lying on his back for four years while he painted the ceiling of Sistine chapel. It is only devotion that would make a man stick to one project for four years. In fact, when people compliment his work as a masterpiece, he would remind them how long it took him to complete the work.

Devotion is the only way to distinction in a New Year.

5. Discipline

Discipline is better than skillAnonymous

This is a crucial agent of success. When all the other factors of success are put together in the absence of discipline the project is tilted towards failure. A person that does not uphold the sanctity of discipline may not make a landmark achievement in life.

When two gifted people are operating different projects in life, discipline is an element that will surely set a bar between them. Even in leadership, it is an unfailing source of trust. When a leader is highly disciplined, the subordinates will not revere him but also tremble before him.

If people can trust you with money, they will be able to do great businesses with you. You need to convince the world that they can trust you with financially and that no amount of money will make you change your position or deter you from achieving your goal.

Other forms of discipline we need to cultivate include – sexual, moral, time, food, exercise, emotional, vocal, and spiritual discipline. Indiscipline is a parasite that sucks the blood and strength of its host and never sets it free until the agent is dead.

Discipline will scare away distractions giving you more time to program a prosperous New Year.

Learn and live these 5D's of success and prosperity, apply them and the sky will be your starting point!

Wishing you a prosperous New Year.
