How to plan for 2011-Part 1

Hello world,
As the year 2010 draws to a close, there are as many predictions about 2011 as people on the planet. Some people cannot wait for 2010 to end because it has been a rough year. Others cannot wait to see what 2011 will bring to them. They are just optimists at heart and are up and ready for anything. Then, there are others who realize that if they want 2011 to be different from 2010 they are going to have to plan it. It does not mean that all your plans will work, but if you have no plan then you are going to be at the mercy of what everybody else throws at you. Let us deal with those who cannot wait for 2010 to end. Maybe you lost your job, maybe you lost money in a financial deal, maybe you lost family members and friends and it was just one hit after the other, and you are saying I need this to end now. I am ready for 2011. Chances are the things that happened were things you had no control over. Well, guess what? As long as you are alive there are going to be things in life that will happen to you on your journey and you just have to deal with them as they happen. What do you need to know? You need to know that 2011 gives you a fresh start. Forget what happened to you in 2010 and know that the fact that you survived the things you did in 2010, that in itself is a testament that you have what it takes to face 2011. Things will happen that you have no control over, but you will be able to deal with it. There will be challenges, but you are well able to face them and overcome them.
