Press the reset button in 2019

As we end a fabulous 2018 with all its ups and downs, challenges and victories, let us prepare ourselves for an awesome New Year, which is bound to usher in a lot of changes into our lives and in the lives of our loved ones, as every New Year invariably does.

What does it mean to press the reset button?

You might wonder why one should press the reset button and what does it mean to press the reset button?

In this era of technology, all of us perform more like high resolution sensitive communication devices. We keep attracting Apps that become outdated in less than a year. Nefarious negative viruses get into our systems that either threaten to slow down or destroy our lives altogether. Then, there are so many issues that keep on getting accumulated during a year that need to be flushed out. If they remain, they will clog and disrupt the good that is awaiting to happen in the new year.

No wonder, we make new year resolutions, yet they wane out within a short span of months and we find ourselves in the same old rut doing the same old things that we we know we should not be doing, which are injurious to our bodies, lives and communities. Research points out only 8% of New Year resolutions are kept. So, pressing the reset button, actually deals with those negatives that undermine our new year resolutions and help begin life a fresh.

How to make lasting New Year resolutions?

Ask your inner-self what are some of the areas that you ought to concentrate, focus and master this year to take yourself closer to your life goals and purposes. Ponder on those questions even as you go to sleep and give your inner conscience an opportunity to answer through dreams, promptings, inner urgings and impressions.

Then, decide on three or four areas basing it on your inner promptings and go to work on them with clarity of vision. Usually, it will take around a year or more to master one area. So, remind yourself that you are in this long haul, girdle yourself with determination and put together a practical action plan to make those audacious goals a reality in your life.

Seek Counsel

Pressing the reset button also means seeking counsel from experts who have made a mark in those areas where you are looking for mastery. They should be living models who are able to demonstrate success and victory in those areas where you are looking for capacity building. It is a good investment to participate in workshops and seminars facilitated by these experts. You may also invest in tools like books and videos that could help you speed up the materialization of whatever your pursuing in your life. Make experts and great tools your power allies in this life journey.

Edison is an amazing role model for all of us. He experimented with perfecting the light bulb over 6000 times before he ultimately met with victory. Someone asked him whether he wasted so many precious hours doing all those experiments. For which Edison replied saying that he found out 6000 different ways how not to do it and counted all those hours as real investment into his project. How easily do we give up after doing a particular task for three or four times, when it meets with failure.

In 2019, let us not give up but keen on perfecting and optimizing our performance on roles and responsibilities that we have been doing in the past. As a nation, we are at the brink of major breakthroughs. If we listen to our inner self, then we will be able to make inventions and creations that will put Sri Lanka on the global map again.

Times of Change

You can play a part in this movement of change that is sweeping across this nation. Sri Lanka will live again! Sri Lanka will show forth the way to the rest of Asia Pacific in many key areas. Sri Lanka is well on its way to becoming an economic hub that all of us can be proud of. Yet, you are a key in this movement. These are times of change. Press the reset button, tap into your true identity and do something new and innovative in 2019!
