10 Suggestions to Still Be Happy While Reviewing Your Goals In The Past Year

Now that the year is ending, you can choose to focus on the things that made you happy on dwell on things that made you sad during the year.  I will urge you to choose the former.

At one point or another during the outgoing year, just like anyone else, you might have experienced what someone described as “the good, the bad and the ugly.” But that doesn’t mean you should ‘kill’ yourself.

It is time to move on…

You have survived the year 2016, and 2017 is there for you to conquer. Do not jeopardise your interests in the new year by dwelling so much on the mistakes of the previous year.

There are more opportunities awaiting you in the coming years than the ones you might have lost in the past. Stay focused… you will get to the promised land.

So as you review your goals for 2016, here are some suggestions I will like to give you:

  1. Find more reasons to be cheerful than you can find to be tearful.

  2. Count your blessings, not your losses.

  3. Focus on your gains rather than on your pains.

  4. Be thankful for everything, and regretful for nothing.

  5. Appreciate people and begrudge no one.

  6. Be grateful for the answered prayers rather than be bitter about the yet-to-be-answered ones.

  7. Think of the faces that smiled at you more than the ones that frowned at you.

  8. Celebrate the positive developments in your life rather than continue to regret over the negative ones.

  9. Be positive about life, not negative.

  10. Embrace the new year with renewed hopes and vigour.

Whatever might have happened to you in 2016 is now in the past. There is no use crying over spilt milk if things didn’t work out well – the way you expected them to. It is now time to be ushered into the new year with new hopes and new aspirations.

Happy New Year!

  3. Good advice Victor, our years on earth are limited, Time is short, yes let’s focus on each day the way God tells us to….

    Philippians 4 ( 8- 9 ) Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

    Love and Blessings Victor for the New Year – Anne

      Thank you Anne. The scripture you cited is very appropriate. Is it not amazing that God would have think on wholesome things only? May we delivered from rotten thinking. Remain blessed. And happy new year to you and your family.
