How to Set Realistic Goals for a Strong Year

Have your goals failed before you got started? Fear kills dreams before they begin. Can you find the time? Is your attention, energy, and focus tied up with too many goals. In the book Unstoppable, Cynthia Kersey found that only 3% of people have goals and 1% write them down. There are countless reasons why someone fails to meet their objectives in life.

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time.” ~ Thomas Edison

Goal setting is not like throwing darts. You do not step up to the line, give the target a quick look, and hope for the best. Goal setting is a process of anticipating, thinking and synchronizing.

What Are You Willing To Do For Good Pay?

What Are You Willing To Do For Good Pay?

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.
