All over the world, but mainly in the U.S., people participate in a 4,000 year old custom and make New Years’ resolutions to do better than they did the previous year. Making a resolution essentially is making a firm decision to do or not do something. It’s exciting to celebrate the beginning of a new year and to open the door to self-improvement. We can all choose to shake off last year’s ups and downs with a new plan to go forward, and incorporate a personal plan to go higher in life, while holding captive a whirlwind of excuses and complacency that tries to sneak up and put progress on hold. When the New Year embarks on a new day, along comes the chance to reset your goals, and invite a new way of being and thinking into your life.
