Instead focus on the successes of 2017, the excitement of possibility, and the internal transformation that will lead to external outcomes. Here are 10 quotes to help you do just that.

“As the year comes to a close, it is a time for reflection – a time to release old thoughts and beliefs and forgive old hurts.

Let us be thankful for the blessings of the past and the promise of the future.” ― Peggy Toney Horton

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” ― Neil Gaiman

“A lot can be changed in a span of a year. A thousand lives can be molded, a lot many lessons can be learnt and life can show its unpredictability. Even so, one year is enough to prove to yourself that you are worth the struggle that you undertake just to reap a momentary fruit of that labor. If fighting a new fight keeps us motivated each year, so be it.”― Adhish Mazumder

“An exceptional future can only be built on the transformation of the mess I’ve made out of my past, not the elimination of that mess.” ― Craig D. Lounsbrough

“The most important thing is this: to sacrifice what you are now for what you can become tomorrow.” –Shannon L. Alder

“Nothing is as good as coming into the new year with zeal, hope and positive mind.” ― Bamigboye Olurotimi

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” — C.S. Lewis

“We are the authors of our destinies. No one can see the vision any clearer, believe in and work any harder to make it a reality more than the visionary.” ― Nike Campbell-Fatoki
