The New Year is here! We have raised and clinked our glasses. We have wished each other great and wonderful things for the coming year. And we have set our dreams high and ambitious. Yesterday, at church, we even wrote our resolutions on a Wall of Resolutions. And yes, your intentions are well-meaning. You indeed intend to get that promotion at work this year. You intend to get published. Write more. Facebook less. Read more. Leave that unhealthy relationship. Lose that weight.

While you're dreaming with good intentions, however, it is good to know that dreams attained include work. But, in order to be able to put in the work, you must first believe that you deserve the life you intend to have. And to do that, you must be willing to change the way you think about your life, your circumstances and your ability to achieve something bigger and greater than you can imagine.

The way you think determines your attitude, and your attitude determines your actions.  And unless you take positive action fueled by positive thinking, you’ll find yourself stuck in the same place come 2015, with a bad attitude. We both know that’s not what you want. You really want to get out there and make a difference. So do it!

Yes, just go out there and do it! Trust that God will give you the strength to persevere. Believe you’re worth it. Persevere until you get it. Be patient when things seem slow. But, by all means, believe that you’re capable and worth it and keep striving until you have attained!

I certainly hope that the stories you tell at the end of this year will be great, inspiring and wonderfully delicious because, finally, you just got bold in your mind, went out there and did it! Good luck, and Happy New Year!!!
