          A New Year Means New Beginnings.

          Contributed by National Officers

          A new year means new beginnings.  I’m sure the new school year has brought on some type of emotion in each of us.  Maybe you feel excited as you approach the ever looming day where you will be awarded your degree.  Maybe you feel nervous as this year brings you to a new school.  Maybe you feel apprehensive because you know this year is going to be a tough year.  No matter what this new year brings you, it brings all of us an opportunity to Imagine our possibilities, Believe in ourselves, and Become something greater.

          This year’s National Officer Team felt very strongly about this idea and chose a theme that stands out from themes of the past.  We were truly inspired by the words and wanted to share with you our feelings on Imagine, Believe, Become.

          Imagine- As student members, we are barely putting our toes in the water of our future professions.  The possibilities are endless and I’m sure we all have a dream for our future.  It’s that dream that you think about before you fall asleep.  It’s the same one you think about while in class.  Our dreams might seem distant, but imagining is the first step to making them come true.

          Believe- Again, dreams may seem distant, but believe that it can come true and believe in yourself.  Our potential is limitless.  Hold on to your vision and let it motivate you.  Part of believing is doing.  As you imagine yourself in your dream, begin making choices that will lead you to the result you want.  If you believe in being a better you, you will leave behind old habits and work towards forming new ones.

          Become-This part is probably the most exciting when realized, but isn’t easily recognizable.  Our transformation to a better business professional will not happen overnight.  It is much like the sunrise.  The light slowly changes the darkness into day.  Then, without much notice, the sun is up and shining brightly.  As we become, it won’t be an instant change, but rather a process where we will shine brightly without knowing we have reached our potential.

          May this year bring each of us success as we try to Imagine our potential, Believe in the vision, and Become our best self. 

          Best wishes,

          Spencer Christensen
