26 Dec 2014 A 2015 Resolution
As 2014 draws to a close, we remember its challenges, victories, and defeats, but when we reflect more deeply, we realize how important are the relationships we shared them with. Accomplishments mean little if we cannot enjoy them with our friends. And challenges become more bearable with the support of those who care.
During the year we celebrated countless improved ways of accomplishing our clients most important goals. We also helped others change course from what were surely paths to financial ruin. The celebrations ranged from disbelief to tears, and all in between, but every one made what we do here at Beacon so deeply rewarding.
The common threads throughout all these meetings were the sense of purpose they each had for their lives as well as a deep devotion to building strong relationships for ensuring their success.
In the 1947 movie The Bishop’s Wife, with Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven, a wise cab driver named Sylvester remarked, “you know the problem with this country? people don’t know where they are going and they are in such a hurry to get there.” How well does this sage observation describe us today? Does it hit as closely to home for you as it does for me?
As we plan to celebrate the New Year and remember the blessings of those who helped us enjoy and/or endure the last one, why not resolve to be more aware of our purpose, deliberate in our course, and grateful to those we depend upon to navigate the trials and triumphs along the way.
That’s our resolution – Happy New Year to you from the Beacon
