It’s never too late to start again. In fact, each new day is the perfect new beginning (Psalm 118: 24). You can turn things around. Take that first step! This is part two.
“If I can see it, then I can do it. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it… If I can see it, then I can be it. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it.” ‘I believe I can fly’ by R. Kelly
Have a dream. Define the goal and outcome. Use all your senses – see, hear, feel, smell, taste. Contextualise it – where, when, with whom, how often, what circumstances. Be decisive. Make a decision, else you’ll lose the opportunity. Act on it. Now!
“Miracles come in CANS!”
Have a can-do attitude. Live with the belief that you can handle whatever comes your way.
“Always act as if it was impossible to fail, and God will see you through.” Elena Zelayeta in ‘The Amazing Results of Positive Thinking’ by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
Have the inner conviction that what you start you will finish, albeit with some help from above.

Attack each difficulty with confidence and an optimistic attitude. Focus on what’s right, not what’s wrong. State what you want to achieve positively.
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23: 7 KJV
“Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.” William James
Conditions are created by thoughts. Start thinking differently. Give yourself a makeover – from the inside! Challenge your set ideas and do a spring-cleaning of the mind. Be prepared to learn from anyone – young and old.
“Today is gonna be the day… Because maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me…” ‘Wonderwall’ by Oasis
Once you forget about yourself and focus on doing something for someone else, real magic starts to happen. And best of all, you will rise with the tide and will be doubly blessed. Believe that something good is going to happen to you today.
“ You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis
Age is entirely dependant on your mindset, not your actual age. In short, as long as you’re planning eagerly for the future with scant regard for the past, then you’re in the right league. Dream on, then do!
“To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream. Not only plan but also believe.” Anonymous
You need to believe in yourself to succeed and have a burning desire to turn that vision into reality.
Each time when you and your loved ones enjoy a special time together, see it as a celebration of love and life – a new beginning to be enjoyed in the present; with no dark clouds of the past or the future clouding your happiness. Chin!
