December 30, 2007

It's December 30th and that means failed New Year's Resolutions are right around the corner. If you're like most Americans, you'll probably pick up a resolution, stick with it for a few weeks and quit before Valentine's Day.

Sorry for my pessimism but that's how most resolutions work. Why will this new year be any different? It probably won't be. My goal isn't to change an entire country and since you're reading this, I want to help you change. The first step in changing is figuring out you have a problem. Once you've done that you need a plan to change and finally you need to actually make it happen.

This week's tip isn't going to tell you something optimistic like admitting you have a problem is half the battle or if you're reading this you care and that's all that's important. Change isn't about wanting something to happen or wishing for a miracle. Change is about standing up and fixing what's not working.

Some people don't want change but like John F. Kennedy once said, "Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future." Change shouldn't be something to fear. Always think you're capable of doing more. With 2008 only hours away, use the new year to stand up and fix what's broken.
