Happy New Year

New Years : "I Promise to Promote my Strengths and what I love Doing!!"
Jan 9, 2013

For the new year,  plan to emphasize your strengths, not your weaknesses.
  • What am I good at? What do I love doing?
  • How can I make sure I thank myself always and continue to shine in what I do?
Rather than trying to fix "your problems" for the new year, plan to ramp up your energy by working with your personal strengths.

Focusing on problems and issues - while popular - is not sustainable.  Strengths, assets and uniqueness bring us joy and the energy to improve our lives. 

Focus on the good  - issues, problems and  complaints will quietly fade away.
