Resolution For The New Year…
Every new year people set out new goals and objectives, aimed at bettering themselves. Occasionally, some folks get cynical and decide they’ll be skipping the corny new years resolution that everybody else tries to execute. But eventually, most go back every now and again to try and use this fresh start in order to re-align their focus and move forward.
Whether you like it or not, goals are important. Objectives and key focus are important, and regardless of how cynical, no-nonsensical, or how logical you are, things like visualization, meditation, affirmations…etc. are all strategies that have a proven track record.
