What’s your story?

Or better yet, what would you like it to be? As the new year approaches, many of us reflect on where we’ve been; where we are and where we want to be. We look at the new year as a chance for a do-over; a clean slate; a blank page in a new chapter: we resolve to change.

About half of us make at least one resolution for the new year. Maybe it’s losing weight and getting healthier; getting our financial ducks in a row; starting a new career; or maybe it’s just being a better person. Six months into the year, only half of the original half will still be on track. Why?

Could be the resolution isn’t really the “right” one; it’s too vague, it’s not being done for the right reasons; it’s not measurable or realistic. Maybe expectations are too high or maybe we just give up too easily.

January 1 starts a new chapter in the book of your life. What’s your story going to be? A mystery? Action packed? A romance? A comedy? The comeback of the year? Fame and fortune? It’s yours to write, so make sure it’s a good one.

Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!
