We all need a renewed lease of life - with a new heart

I no longer make New Year's resolutions because I can motivate myself to do what I want or break a habit any time of the year. All that I need for a healthier, happier, and prosperous 2013 in all aspects of my life is a new heart; a new attitude towards life. And that I have got!

Matthews 15:18-19 should guide me, you, parents, policy makers, the entire nation. The scripture reads, "But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person."I received my new heart on the first Sunday of 2013. A new heart particularly the professional side of things. I am going to be a better employee, voter and citizen of this country and planet. This is not a New Year's resolution; it is just a new heart for life! These 365 minus days do not need the tired, rotten and corrupt hearts of the previous year!

Last night my new heart re-emphasised the importance of increasing ones' worth as a professional. Just like a lick of paint increases the value of a house, so does going for a refresher course, networking extensively, drawing a career roadmap and having a professional coach. Growing one's value in the workplace is very crucial as it is intertwined to harnessing more opportunities and climbing up the professional ladder. Three years ago I did not know the significance of having a mentor - someone to discuss your professional journey with. I did not even have any written document to guide this journey.
