This year my word is ownership.
What that word means to me this year is the activity of managing or exerting control over my actions and, therefore, my life.
I have ownership of my power, my emotions and my daily choices. I am trusting in what I believe can be true for me.
I am excited.
I asked last week, but let me ask again…If you were to pick a word instead of a resolution this year, what would it be? I would love for you to share your word for 2013 with me.
While I talked about making New Year’s resolutions last week, I did so because many folks do so at this time of year even though many aren’t kept.
According to Proactive Change®, 40 to 45% of American adults make one or more resolutions each year.
Among the top New Year’s resolutions are resolutions about weight loss, exercise, and smoking cessation. Also popular are resolutions dealing with better money management and/or debt reduction.
Proactive Change ® reports that 71% of the resolutions made are kept past two weeks while 64% are kept after one month. And after six months only 46% of the resolutions made are kept. [click to continue…]
