Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.
~ Sir Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965)
I believe it’s a defeatest attitude that says, “I don’t make resolutions because I’ll only break them.” I say, live. a little! Dare to dream. Take a challenge. So what if you don’t keep your resolutions- you’ll never know if you don’t try! And what if you do succeed? At least a little in one area. Make big goals, small goals, vague goals, definite goals, short goals, long goals, a new habit, break an old habit . . .
Don’t waste the year or end the year with regret! What would you like to see changed, improved, finished at the end of the year? Do you want to be more healthy, weigh less, weigh more, be debt-free, save more money, make better financial decisions, grow your business, start a business, get a degree, go back to school, finish school, adopt a child, start a family, get married, save the plant, save coupons, save a life? The possibilities are endless! The only thing that stands between you and your dream is you!
Write down your goals. Make a plan on how you can achieve each one. Perhaps just make a giant to-do list of everything you need to do during the year and post it where you’ll review it often and check it off as you go. See how much progress you can make this year. As long as there’s life there’s hope!
Don’t make excuses, make resolutions!
