Deliberate Success

Be deliberate

As I wrote about my 2018 goals in my last post, I have chosen to be more Deliberate this year — more conscious and intentional with my decisions and my life. I believe this behavior will lead to greater success in all I set out to achieve this year. So to start things on a positive note, I would like to share a quick post with a few words of inspiration for this first week of the new year.

It’s a time for reflecting on last year – what worked and didn’t:

“Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the story you’re willing to create.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

And a time for making our plans for this new year to be better than the last:

“You are never too old to set another goal, or dream a new dream.” ~ C. S. Lewis

And finally, for me, it’s a time to embrace my word and focus on what that means for me in building a purposeful path to a successful and happy year:

“The way into the hall of success always passes through the chamber of decision. Decide to be a success; success is deliberate.” ~ Israelmore Ayivor


I hope you are having the best week! Have you set any goals for 2018 or embraced a word for the year? I would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Hi,
    I resonate with your blog above & your blog on your ‘about page’.
    I have Chronic health conditions too, Fibromyalgia is one of them. It came to visit after the death of my beloved husband to brain cancer, 13 years ago & has never left! I also believe that we need to seize each day with joy (even on the challenging days)! Life is too short for anything else!
    At the top of my 2018 to do list…was to start a blog, because I love to write & journal, blogging fits these two criteria beautifully.
    I have birthed this into my blog at … you are most welcome to drop by with a hot beverage of your choice, add a tasty treat of deliciousness & linger to reflect with me for awhile.
