Disclaimer: When I blog at home, I do not have a critiquer (is that a word?). My grammar could and occasionally will be sub-par. When I blog I write how it appears in my head, not how it should appear in a journal :).
It’s January 1st, and yes, I’ve made my New Years Resolutions. I saw recently that 90% of New Years Resolutions are broken within the first month. Unfortunately, I’m one that continues to contribute to that data.
Not this year though…right? Can you feel my energy? I even made more than one, and that probably had something to do with the fact that I’d already broken the first two. But this third one I tell you is going to go the distance. If your not at the edge of your seat reading this yet please get there, because I’m about to tell you all about my untouchable, unbreakable, longest lasting resolution yet.
I have fallen in love with Twitter. It is my greatest resource. Anyways, if you have not heard of Jon Gordon look him up. He is a motivator, innovator, and all the rest. His message is inspiring, and he has created the “One Word” movement. He has also written a number of captivating books.
We all know times get hard. We get into a slump. We feel down, cheated, alone etc. Lets face it, we all have bad days. What we don’t realize is that the world is full of bad days, and we are not alone at all. Everybody has a story, and in everybody’s story are good chapters. We can all think of something good that we have in our lives. Why is it so easy though to see the bad?
It is because we allow ourselves to. On the bright side, we can control this.
I challenge each and every one of you to find one word that can resonate good in your lives. Find a word that can take you from the dark to the light. One word that can turn a frown into a smile, and turn a worry into an opportunity. Find a word that gives you purpose and jump all over it. If you haven’t already give @JonGordon11 a follow. You will get inspired.
I suppose you are wondering what my third resolution is. It is my one word; “blessed.” My resolution is to always feel blessed. Why wouldn’t I? I have three wonderful kids, an awesome wife, and a wonderful family. I obviously have many other blessings but if I tell you those now, I will not have anything to blog about in the future.
As we head into a new year, I wish peace and prosperity to each and every one of you. The world can be cloudy at times, but it is also full of numerous blessings. Be “blessed” and have a great year.
