Well, it's here again, the last day of 2012. Happy New Year to all my blog readers! We pray 2013 brings you many blessings. Do you make New Year's Resolutions and, if so, have you kept them? Studies show that most people who make resolutions, don't keep them. However, did you know that sharing your goals with others can actually help you keep them? Why? Because reaching a goal is difficult. Most of the incredible things men and women have done throughout history have been accomplished because of the help and support of friends or family. Even more than that, communicating your goals to your friends, neighbors and family will make it public and increase the chances that you will keep your word to stop smoking, lose weight or make extra income. Now if you are thinking that all your friends and family will be encouraging and supportive and that's how you'll keep your resolutions, you'd be partially correct. Many will encourage you to keep going, but some may even secretly hope you fail. Some don't really want to keep their resolutions and they don't want to be alone in this. lol However, telling Uncle Harold that you will finally clean out your garage after 12 years of saying so will prompt him to keep bringing it up at family functions all year and you'll find yourself picking through years of old junk you couldn't bring yourself to part with in the past just to save face! It can be a fabulous motivator if you are willing to take a little abuse. What kinds of things would you like to accomplish in 2013? Is one of them to learn to communicate with your friends, family, spouse, children, or co workers? Don't forget that we can help you with that!
