For the millions of people around the world who start the new year with empty promises to themselves (some of you call them "new year's resolutions"), I have this to say.
If the beginning of the year is the only time you promise yourself or others that you are going to make changes in your habits for the better, then chances are, you are not a very successful human being. You may or may not be financially secure, but I am willing to bet, you have a long way to go as a person.
The point is, you must have goals- isn't that what a New year's Resolution is?- all year! You must constantly push yourself to be more successful today than you were yesterday! You should thrive to continue to grow, day after day.
If you do that, you will become a better person, employee, parent, business owner or whatever relation you have to people and the world around you. And guess what? Good habits are just as addictive as bad ones.
So get to work! Become the person you strive to be, and watch the world around change to a happier, more peaceful place!
