How to Have a Wonderful New Year
4 simple ways to have your best year ever
By Norman Vincent Peale

Ralph Waldo Emerson suggested that one should write on his heart that every year can be the best year he ever lived. I’ve put together a very short list of things you can do to realize Emerson’s promise.

1. Start “in the beginning.”
The first four opening words of the Bible—"In the beginning, God..."—will see you throughout the year. In all things, remember God at the start of each day, each project at work, each challenge you face, and you will have a wonderful time in the new year.

2. Practice the art of forgetting.
Man is what he remembers, but man is also what he forgets. One of the healthiest things a human being can do is to become a master of forgetting. Whatever you do, don't lug around your resentments, your hates, your frustrations, your disappointments, or your regrets into the new year. Forge ahead! It is a great art to know how to forget. Drop it, skip it, let it go. Whatever it is, start anew.

3. Take hold of the new year and shake the life out of it.
Drop the "T" off "forget" and forge ahead. Live a day at a time and take it as it comes. Live a day at a time and live on the basis of easy does it. Don't get too worked up about things. Just take them as they come.

4. Expect great things and put your life in God's hands.
Have high hopes, have great dreams, have great belief. See visions and believe in them. Believe that life is good and that it’s going to be better. You know something? You are very likely to get just what you expect.
