It’s hard to believe that another year is in the books; 2016 flew by and it will go down as one of the most intense years in history. I for one am glad it’s over, as I imagine many of you are, for a plethora of reasons that really need no explanation. Now, 2017 is here and as with any New Year, we will be filled with the excitement of all the possibilities it brings. Let’s just go for it!

Perhaps we mistake this magical feeling for the deep sense of relief of having made it through the year; another trip around the sun and we are still here! Let’s raise our glasses and celebrate! We are sure that when the clock strikes midnight, our lives will change for the better. This year will be different, we just know it. We make resolutions to ensure that we will become the future versions of ourselves we so long to be. And then January passes and we realize that it’s just another day, week, and year. Sigh. But it doesn’t have to be that way….

I think that in 2017 we all should throw caution to the wind. We should make a bold, courageous resolution and pursue it with gusto: we should commit to becoming really great at something that makes the world a better place or that brings great joy to our lives. Can you imagine how much better we would all feel if we pursued something that brought about real, positive change to our lives?

Sure, it may seem like a chasm to get from here to there, but it’s all in how you look at it. There is almost always a path; you just have to create the steps to get there. And you have to being willing to do the hard work. The first step is overcoming inertia; once you have momentum, it gets easier.

If you need some inspiration (or a good kick in the butt), I suggest these books to help overcome inertia and create a plan of action.

“The Compound Effect,” by Darren Hardy

“The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results” by Gary Keller

“The 10X Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure,” by Grant Cardone

Remember, your dreams won’t happen to you unless you make them happen. Go for it.

Happy New Year,
