What’s Your Resolution?
On the radio today, the announcers were asking listeners to tell them if they already blew their New Year’s Resolution. Say what?!
The year has just started and there is plenty of time for the ups and downs, determination and work that comes with keeping resolutions. There’s no need to call it quits already in the first week of the year. If you slip up. Acknowledge it, and start again. No one is keeping score, but you. It is the end game that counts, not the beginning. Michael Jordan has said that he missed more than 9000 shots in his career. And that he has failed over and over and over again…and that is why he succeeds.
“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” Michael Jordan
