How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? Are you determined to succeed this year? Good for you. I wish you the best with whatever you are focused on accomplishing in this coming year. I will be honest and say that I have not made a resolution for years. When I do, it feels like I am setting myself up for failure because after a few weeks, any notion I had to spend more time getting in shape or lose weight or save more money always seems to get lost in the shuffle of life. I think most people really do want to be successful but it takes a lot of intentional behavior to make changes and stick with them. This year, instead of a resolution, I am trying something different. I am challenging myself to change my focus from self-improvement technics to developing a deeper, richer spiritual identity. Wow that will be a big task, which is why I have called it a challenge.
