The New Year is a time of reflection and planning. It’s an exciting time, because it feels like a fresh start and a new beginning. And it motivates us to consider all that we want to do and achieve.
But take a step back. Look at the world around you. Instead of considering who you are and what you want, look at the people you want to be like. These are your heroes, and your heroes offer an immense growth opportunity.
Remember those awkward middle school dances? The ones where everyone stood around waiting for something to happen. Small groups of teenagers shuffling awkwardly around the gymnasium, socializing, and waiting for the party to get started.
