Morning Cup of Joe – New Leaf

Why do so many people talk about turning over a new leaf and starting over? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a good thing to start over and start anew. However, there are times when people tend to focus so much on starting anew that they fail to realize that they need to improve on the old. Simply, it is imperative that you focus on fixing the issues now instead of scrapping the original plan and starting over.

One of the most effective ways to start afresh is to clearly understand and respect the events that occurred in your past. In addition, one must focus on the reasons why they want to start over as this may not be the best overall option. Your past should merely serve as a blueprint for your future. The devil is in the details. You have to go back and analyze the battles you were able to overcome and how this newly acquired skill can be transferred to future obstacles. Learn from your past in order to build a better future.

When we attempt to turn over a new leaf, sometimes we ignore what was on the other side. Focus on the other side because that is what got you to the point of wanting to turn over a new leaf; that’s where the puzzle should be solved. We cannot ignore this because those same issues will continue to occur even after you’ve turned over your proverbial new leaf.

While turning over a new leaf don’t lose focus on what’s most important; overall self-improvement.
