In a little over a week we will be welcoming in a brand new year and for many people that means a time for making new plans or starting afresh with old ideas. It’s the beauty of this stage in the holiday season that most people make their plans with a confidence and conviction that is not always present at other times of the year.
So to help keep that positivity pumped once the festive eagerness has fizzled a little, here are 12 life-affirming and reassuring quotes to help you really go after your dreams in 2015.
