Good People,

Happy New Year! First two weeks of 2019 and many of us are settling into the full swing of our New Year's Resolutions and goals. We're in the thick of the "New Year, New Me" era. I've come across a lot of information about New Year's Resolutions and how they can end up doing more harm than good. It's reported that by February 80% of resolution setters are feeling disappointment. Think about it? We spend weeks, sometimes even months, towards the end of the year creating new goals and mapping out our plan for Jan 1. There's a lot of time, money and energy that can go into it the process - creating a bit of a high that can be challenging to sustain throughout the entire year.

This started me thinking about a great piece of advice that season 2 guest, Dr. Chris Zaino offered "everyday become a potentialist". That means I just gotta do the best I can with what I got in the moment. I have it and that's all I'm responsible for today, and then tomorrow I just gotta do the same again." Let's make our main resolution for 2019 to do our best today and then to repeat on the remaining 351. That's how we create WHOLE year resolutions and solidify our goals with the consistency and passion they deserve.

While we're at it, let's also make sure we add the truth to that list of goals.... because the truth will set you free...if you let it!
