Resolve in the New Year

How will 2017 be different for you?

This is the time when many people make New Year resolutions. Regrettably, the daily issues we face often cause us to forget the determination we felt when we made those resolutions. It takes a significant mental and emotional event to stick to our resolve and do things differently. On December 26th our world experienced a significant emotional event that claimed the life of thousands. As a result of this event, I suggest for 2017 that we all consider two important resolutions.

Energy Performance Tip: The first resolution is to do all we can this year to help other people. I once heard someone say that we are all within seven people of knowing everyone in the world. If that's true the entire planet is mourning the loss of someone today. We can't change what happened but we can certainly allow it to be a life-altering event. Resolution: To help those in need in our family, at work, and who are a part of our community.

The second suggested resolution for 2017 is to count our blessings every day. One of the most powerful energizers is to count your blessings. When you do it shifts the focus of energy from what is going wrong to what needs to be done to deal with it. Thankfulness is energizing. Resolution: To daily give thanks for the blessings we have received.

"Our worth is determined by the good deeds we do, rather than by the fine emotions we feel." - Elias L. Magoon

"Be on the lookout for mercies. The more we look for them, the more of them we will see...Better to loose count while naming your blessings than to lose your blessings to counting your troubles." - Maltbie Babcock
