2010 Is YOUR Year

by Robb Sutton

2009 is but a distant memory and 2010 is a 365 day span of a blank canvas waiting to be painted. 2009 came with its own sets of challenges, fears and accomplishments. As one of the most difficult professional years of many people’s lives, we saw a sharp contrast between extreme success and utter failure as we navigated the uncertain economic times. We made it out…we pushed through and we used this frustration to further develop and enhance our own lives. Why? Because other people, places and things are not going to determine our moods and our success.

2010 Is YOUR Year

All of the sweat, tears, long hours and frustration are going to pay off in 2010. All of that work you did while others were complaining is going to add up if it has not already. 2010 is the year we all push forward with our goals to reap the rewards of hard work during a time where others sat back to wait. All of the time you have been putting into your blogs, businesses and stepping that one more step in front of your co-workers or competition is going to see huge rewards in 2010.

We are at the bottomless apex. We are on the verge of greatness. We are ready to continue the push as we have made it out of the wreckage. We are smarter for it and we have no excuses.

Are you going to waste all of the time in 2009 by being lazy in 2010? Do you have your new goals set? Are you ready to attack these next 365 days like they were your last? It is up to you, me and everyone else who fails to concede to the opposition. Are you going to let another individual continue to determine your worth in 2010? Are you going to keep the same complaints and excuses?

Now is the time. The time to get up and make 2010 YOUR YEAR. It is yours to take…and yours to give away…

Motivational post, Robb.

There does seem to be a high energy everywhere for the beginning of this year. It’s a nice change from the doom and gloom mood of 2009.

Just don’t turn on the news:)

I can’t turn on the news anymore. I think people forget that the news is a “for profit” organization. While there is bad news out there…it still sells better than good news.

Inspirational post. I’m agreeing with you, 2010 is going to be by far my most successful year yet, and I’m not going to let anything restrict me from it.

I’ve had this weird feeling at the end of 2009 where I just knew 2010 was going to be awesome. In fact, the coming years are going to blow everyone’s minds all over the place.

I don’t believe in numerology, but it was interesting to read that according to numerology the year 2009 was one of testing and challenge, while 2010 will be one of creativity.

I had that same weird feeling too. I even told my wife, “you just wait…2010 is going to be HUGE…I can feel it.”

Great post Robb!
As human beings, our greatest and most powerful assest is the ability to “choose our own attitude.”. Each day, when we roll out of bed we are faced with a decision, “What will be my attitude today?”. Once we figure this out, we realize it is a waste of precious time and energy to focus our efforts on the parts of life in which we have zero control. Are you going to be angry all day because it’s cold, dreary, and you have to clean snow off of your car first thing in the morning, or will you be able to realize you have no control over the weather so you’re going to grab the day “by the horns” and do the things necessary to be successful?
We all need to learn this lesson *and* we all need to be reminded to continue to practice it.
Thank you Robb for my daily reminder!

Every day we have to choose that attitude. Great point Aaron.

There’s just so many things about this post that I find motivational. I read it this morning and I think it helped turned a first Monday back at work into a really productive Monday.

Really good smelling coffee has a tendency to do that too! 😉

It doesn’t hurt when I have a brand new coffee maker (for review purposes) to make that coffee in.

Good stuff, Robb. I agree, 2010 has endless possibilities and really does feel like it’s going to be different.
2009 was so hard for so many people in so many unique ways. Good riddance.
Here I come 2010.

Stand and be counted.

I read somewhere the other day that 2010 would be a great year for launches as it makes counting the anniversaries easier 😉 – Plenty of incentive to seize 2010 and start your own website, blog or business.
