One Important Thing To Remember When Making New Year’s Resolutions

As 2014 comes to a close, I would share a quote from author Lewis

You’ll never leave where you are, until you decide where you’d rather be.”

That quote sounds awfully simple. But the message is very important, especially given the time of year.

This week many of us will create New Year’s resolutions. We will decide to eat better, stop smoking or do one of the many other things we feel will make us better people.

And many of us will give up on those resolutions before the next Wonder Why Wednesday.

I wish I had a sure fire plan that would guarantee you could stick with your New Year’s resolution.

But I don’t.

All I can do is encourage you to keep the above quote in mind as you are determining (and then struggling through) your New Year’s resolution.

As you look ahead to 2014, decide where you’d rather be. That is the first step in leaving where you are.
