Every year has its events and outcomes that are good, bad, noteworthy, or predictable. 2016 was a year of events that most people would not have expected! Think of this: The Cubs won the World Series for the first time in over 100 years! Donald Trump, without any significant support from either major political party, won the election to be the next President of the United States. I could list out notable events of the year, but let me just make my point in a more direct way.
If there is anything you want to do in 2017, but believe is not possible because you do not have the resources, or the connections, or the background to do it, you need to cultivate a belief in yourself that it is possible. Your dream can be achieved if you take up the work, execute a good plan, and are passionate and consistent in your follow through. The underdogs are winning, and you can too!
Maybe next year, the Superbowl will feature the Houston Texans and the Detroit Lions! Anything is possible!
