2015!! Make It Count For Your Family!

At the beginning of each year, most people sit down and make a list of new year’s resolutions.  Sadly, studies have shown that most individuals give up on their resolutions within 3-6 months.

In my opinion, this happens because the rewards of success don’t out way the pain of change.  I personally relate strongly to this truth.

However, I want to encourage you to make the commitment to make the changes necessary, regardless of the discomfort or even the disapproval of others.

Here are some tips to get you started:

1.  Make a list of those changes you want to see this year.  Be sure to involve your family as these changes will affect them.

2.  Seek out the information needed for each area of change.  For instance, if you want to achieve financial goals, read books such as Rich Dad Poor Dad.

3.  Draw of a plan of action and choose a friend as an accountability partner.  Don’t choose your spouse because they will cause you to make emotional decisions,  not well informed ones.

3.  Stay the course.   You will find that some friends and even family will try to discourage you.  Before you listen to them, take a close look at their life and ask yourself if you desire to live like them.  In most cases, you will find that their discouragement of you is a defense mechanism that was triggered due to your desire to make a change in your life.

As you progress,  keep us updated as to your progress.  We want to share the success stories of others as a means of encouragement to all readers.

Till next time,

HAPPY NEW YEAR

About Building & Guarding Families

I am a 36 yr old, married father of 3 children. I have had relationship with God for the last 15 years, but it wasn't until I started my own family that I understood why God made me different. A passion grew in me for building and guarding my family from the failures of those that went before me. I want to share that passion and the wisdom I accumulated over the years to help others to strengthen their families and guide their children the way God intended.
