(4. Volunteer | Get Organised | (Marianne Williamson Quote)

Bernard Meltzer wonders...

"There is no better exercise for your heart, Than reaching down and helping to lift someone up."

Horace Greely wonders...

"The way to do things is to begin."

Marianne Williamson wonders...

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?..."

Bernard Meltzer's inspirational quote is a fantastic encouragement for us all to take up the cause of volunteering.

Whether that be volunteering in our local community, or for a national cause, or even whether it simply means caring for a loved one in need of such care.

Volunteering is a great way to go, and this is one new year resolution I intend to make for the coming new year.


As for Horace Greely's inspirational quotation and to go about achieving your new year goals (e.g. volunteering, starting something new - joining a band, for me, and doing stand up comedy), well it all begins by...




Nothing hard about doing that. Is there?

As for powerful words of Marianne Williamson, well these words probably sum up the reason why we often make new year resolutions and then break our new year resolutions.

We self-sabotage, clearly, and get in the way of ourselves.

All to stop us facing how truly great we are.

What a shame.

But it really doesn't have to stay like this.

"Oh - yes - it - does!" I hear you thinking...

"Oh no it doesn't!" :-)
