Rocking in the New Year with a Resolution?

Greenville, SC – It would be presumptuous for me to tell others to make a resolution list, especially since I don’t make them myself.  I haven’t for many, many years. As a matter of fact, someone asked me JUST YESTERDAY what resolutions I had for the New Year 2018.  My reply was not what they expected.  I told them I didn’t have any and that if I resolve to do something, that it is for the long haul and that there is no ‘resolution’ for that.

Don’t get me wrong, there is ABSOLUTELY NO BOTHER creating and following through with a plan that comes in the form of a resolution, whether it be to lose weight, gain weight, start a business, create a business plan, follow-through with a business plan or other venture, stop smoking, speak more gently, etc.

Just don’t rely on making a one-time  effort of creating a resolution on New Year’s Day only.  When you take steps to create a habit, to dispel a habit, create a plan and follow-through, in essence, when you do ANYTHING to make yourself a better ‘You’, you should do it at ANY   POINT    OF   TIME.  Commitment is key.

Say I didn’t stay committed to my goals and dreams?  I definitely wouldn’t be typing this here.  Yeah.  Oh, and don’t fake or front.  Some people will tell you to ‘fake it till you make it’.  Faking it only causes additional confusion in your psyche and in your mind.  Being humble will present far better than ‘faking it’.  Well, unless you want to pass yourself off as fake.  Staying grounded in what you ‘resolve’ to do is 9/10 of keeping your commitment.  Perseverance and staying motivated is a hard pill to swallow at times.  Keep your focus.  You can do it.  Sleep can help.

Sleep and giving your brain rest can do wonders for the spirit, mind, body and more.  If you are a business owner, yes YOU MR OR MRS Business-owner, when you foster relationships with others, you must know that you must foster your relationship with yourself FIRST.  Don’t take yourself for granted in spite of people-pleasing.  Yes, there are deadlines and the work you have at hand must be completed, however, if you are not getting enough rest, you are doing damage to yourself.  In the busy world of deadlines and things you ‘gotta do’, you must take some time out for that 7-8 hours of sleep at night and some ‘chump change’ with a 10 – 30 minute nap (I nap longer if I can).

Been in business 7 plus years following some of these same principles, so in my honest opinion, I don’t think the information I’ve provided above is all that bad.  Take some time, lean back, focus on what you really want out of life.  Commit yourself.  Rest yourself.  Most importantly Pray yourself.

OAN  Happy New Year Folks!

  1. I called many notary publics listed for Greenville County in order to do a child support deposition in another state. After calling multiple notary publics I finally found Ms Leak. She was a very first one out of all that I have called that knew exactly what needed to take place and told me she had done it multiple times before and no worries she would help me through it all. I arrived on time and unfortunately the powers-that-be we’re not ready at the appointed time therefore they asked that we call back in 30 minutes which was not what was intended and Miss leek still was very professional and moved her schedule in order to accommodate my appointment going over. I felt completely at ease dealing with Miss leak and will be using her for anything that requires a notary public from this point forward. I haven’t seen or found another one that is as knowledgeable and all the ramifications of being a notary public. I can promise that if you do use her you won’t be disappointed especially considering what I needed done seemed so simple and she was the only one that knew exactly how to do it all. I had multiple other notary publics literally ask me exactly what they would need to do for the call. It was so refreshing to walk in and Hurley the whole thing as if she done it daily for years. Thank you so much for all your help you have a lifelong Customer now!
