“What feels like the end is often the beginning.”
Happy New Year, everyone! In one of my recent posts, I had talked about New Year resolutions.
I had discussed a few tips on how to keep resolutions which are often broken as quickly as conceived.
In this post, I would like to add to that. A crucial philosophy to remember when setting goals is today’s quote. Rather than looking at something ending, see it as a new beginning.
When we’re going through tough times, having an ending is obviously welcomed and seen a positive thing. But when a good journey ends, we obviously have a much different outlook.
Endings are inevitable for all endeavors, whether they’re good, bad or indifferent. That is something nobody can control. What we can control, however, is our outlook toward them. Rather than see a good thing end, see it as a beginning to something else. Think of it as a transition to a bigger and better journey.
Like anything else I’ve written about, it’s certainly easier said than done. But outlook is everything. If you approach something with enthusiasm, you’re more likely to succeed.
Similarly, if you approach an end like a beginning, the transition will most likely be a lot smoother. And if that’s particularly difficult to do, and understandably, we can think of it as a step along the way.
However you look at it, just avoid the term “ending.” If for no other reason then to simply avoid the negative connotations attached to the word.
How do you feel about endings? Do you look at them negatively or postively? Do you agree with the idea about the outlook being crucial? Share your thoughts and experiences by commenting below on our secure servers.
