My 2012 New Years Resolutions

Did you catch that?  These are my 2012 resolutions.  You see I think people have it all backwards.  Why do they set themselves up for failure?  Setting all sorts of goals and resolutions that most people forget about in 30-45 days? 

Nope this year I my resolutions are coming at the end of the year.

1. Maintain my weight!  Yeah, I succeeded. 
2. Finish the East garden and walk-way.
3. Start a new job. 
4. Pay off my student loan.
5. Start paying extra on the home loan.
6. Sell 11 doberman puppies to loving and caring homes.

Awesome! I succeeded in all of them!  And two of them would not even have been on the list last January 1st.  I had no intentions of starting a new job which required professional certifications.  It feels so good to be successful!

In all seriousness, way too much of the time we do set unreasonable goals for ourselves.  Then we get down on ourselves for not making the goals.  If you choose to set a New Years resolution for yourself, think it through and make sure that you have a plan so that you can be successful.  Set up a friend who is willing to encourage you and hold you accountable. If something happens that you fall short, forgive yourself. 

Always look to the positive things in life.  Because there is an amazing thing that happens.  When you look for something, you have a tendency to find it.  Happy New Years!  May God Bless you throughout 2013!
