Make Every Resolution a Winner

The one thing that drives success

Are you ready for a fresh start?

2021 is just around the corner. Do you have any resolutions? If not, what are your goals?

The first month is the ultimate test for all your plans. You start happy, fresh, and ready to move. As you stretch, your muscles (physical or otherwise) hurt. Your emotions tempt you to give up. Do you push forward? Or do you turn back around and resume your old path?

You wanted to push forward when you set your goal. Is your destination a paradise or a prison? How you see the end determines how you travel.

There’s another problem.

The road to paradise may not be paved with yellow bricks. You may run into bullies, get cut by thorns, or wander onto sideroads. Your journey is a funnel with the large end at step one and the tip touching the finish line.

To push through to the end you need something pushing you.


Perseverance is a decision. You decide that no matter who or what you meet along the way, you’ll keep pressing the gas. When opportunities come, you grab the ones that move you forward — and dismiss those that take you off course. It’s the yes you choose when you turn off the alarm every morning.

All your resolutions and goals fail without it.

Build perseverance one day at a time. Soon you’ll have a habit. The more you say yes to your best life, the easier it is to say no to wasting it.

May 2021 be your best year yet.
