12 Rules For a Successful New Year

Sharing this with Bups!

1. Make at least one life altering resolution.

2. Plan, prepare, be prayerful, patient, passionate and persistent.

3. Isolation and pride breeds doubt and procrastination. Take advantage of the power of accountability.

4. Avoid wishful thinking, excuses, blame and pity parties. Let go of the coulda, woulda and shoulda.

5. You can't do it alone. Work on building your networking skills, relationships, mentoring, and professional alliances.

6. Write your goals down and keep them visible (out of sight, out of mind).

7. What's important to you this new year? Don't make promises or unrealistic goals to impress others.

8. Open yourself to opportunities to grow outside of your comfort zone.

9. Develop your faith, confidence, skills and education so you can seize opportunities and endure adversity.

10. Be discerning about who you share your goals with.

11. Only the strong survive. Shifts happen. Be flexible and resilient. Don't let anything or anyone steal your dreams, faith, joy, purpose or sense of humor.

12. Grow and go for your goals with determination and faith. Let your light shine in 2009!
