Live healthier. Stop procrastinating. Get organized. Write a book. Start a business.
We all want to achieve something that makes our lives better. Sometimes it’s big, sometimes it’s small, but better, nonetheless. And when the desire for better grows into more than just a wish, we set goals to achieve it. With determination and our best intentions, we begin the journey toward our better place. But, even with the strongest resolve to arrive at better, some of our goals remain unaccomplished.
No one heads toward a destination with an intentional plan to never get there. So, what happens? Do you not want it bad enough? Are you not totally committed? Is it too hard for you? Do you want it to happen without putting in the work? Or, is something missing?
Often times, it’s the latter. There’s a missing component.
To successfully reach your goals, you need a power supply.

The freshness of the New Year is exciting. It offers the chance to redo, refocus, and recommit to the better existence we long for. Crossing over into the new year, we hit the ground running with our lists of do’s, don’ts, and best year ever goals. And we sprint intensely toward better health, better finances, better relationships, and better choices. But, how long will your passionate pursuit of better last this New Year?
We’re now two and a half weeks in, and the year is successfully progressing on. Are you?
Has your pace slowed? Or, have you already come to a complete stop? If so, take comfort in knowing that you are not alone. In fact, you’re a part of the majority.
Studies show that only eight percent of those who set goals at the beginning of the year actually go on to reach them. The other 92 percent ditch their goals within months, weeks, or even days.
