Don’t Give Up On Your New Year’s Resolutions…
Let’s take a little trip back to New Year’s Eve. It’s been getting colder outside, Thanksgiving and Christmas have come and gone, and the year is almost over.
How did you feel? Were you excited for the New Year? Was the idea of a fresh start exhilarating? Did you make any resolutions?
I hope so! New Year’s Resolutions get a bad rap because it’s been said that 92% of them don’t stick, so people tend to scoff at them now. To me, that’s sad.
Why? Because life is all about continual improvement and growth.
Not doing something because the odds are against you or because it’s difficult won’t get you anywhere you want to be.
This has been said before. It is worth repeating for you. Do you have a someday goal? You know that one thing that you aspire or hope to achieve one day.

If you combine all these one things, you could be superior to the average person.
Labor is a productive activity for the return of wages and rewards. The word labor is used for the type of work that is conducted which is physically and mentally fatiguing like mining, factory work, and construction. Labor can be used to classify a group of people who are not management or can be categorized based on their wages. Without these workers, we would be without many of the things we take for granted every day.
The problem you are facing over and over is you do not know how to integrate what you are learning not only professionally but personally. You may have recently gone to a conference, attended a course or purchased a book that that was supposed to take things to the next level. The issue is change and transformation. Much of this idea of change and transformation happens in your mind and heart but not in your business or profession when you do these types of activities. When you are done and get back in your routine the energy dissolves.
When you think back to Johnny Carson’s career on the tonight show what do you remember? A man who brought laughter into millions of homes and brightened people’s lives. For an hour, he took you away from the conflict and struggles of daily living.
