10 Messages to inspire you for the New Year

Whatever resolutions we make for the New Year, let us all pray to have the strength and courage to keep those promises we make to ourselves

To most of us, the New Year means a fresh start, changing old ways by making resolutions or a continuation of success and happiness.

But whatever resolutions we make for the New Year, let us all pray to have the strength and courage to keep those promises we make to ourselves.

Compiled by Beliefnet, here are 10 inspiring messages to keep you motivated and hopeful.

A Passion to Be Great

“There is no greatness without passion to be great, whether it’s the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent, or a businessperson.” – Anthony Robbins

For you to achieve greatness, you have to love and be in love with what you’re doing.

Whatever You Can Dream

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Be bold in your dreams and how you achieve them.

An Important Trip

“The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people half way.” – Henry Boyle

Compromise and understanding others can make all the difference.

Shake Off Your Mistakes

“Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don’t look back at it too long. Mistakes are life’s way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.” – Og Mandino

Mistakes and failures are temporary and inevitable. But you have to get back up and keep going.

Don’t Waste Time

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

Always listen to what’s inside of you and follow it.

Another Chance

"Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” — Oprah Winfrey

Take what you’ve learned from life thus far and use it as you move into the new year. And do better.

Let Us Begin

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” — Mother Teresa

The present moment is precious. Focus on what you can do today and then go from there.

I Become

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” –Lao Tzu

Focus on the person you want to be and work on yourself, little by little.

Make It the Life You Want

“It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.” –Mae Jemison

It’s up to you to create the life you want for yourself.
