As we get ready to flip the calendar to another year, this one has truly been a memorable one. But without bothering you with another review of all the good and the bad of this year, I'm always thinking and looking FORWARD but of course you can't know where you're going until you know where you been.

A lot of you are preparing to make "resolutions" to show that you want to make changes in your life and rid yourself of the negative things that have affected you. But why wait until exactly Sunday, January 1st 2017? You can be the change you want to be NOW! Let's look deeper at the word "Resolution".

Look at the word: RESOLUTION To me this is what I see when you split the word:

RE - The prefix re-, which means “back” or “again".

SOLUTION - a means of solving a problem or dealing with a difficult situation.

When I see "resolution", to me it reads "I'm going to TRY AGAIN TO SOLVE THE SAME PROBLEM I HAVE AND HOPEFULLY SOLVE IT."

I'm not knocking you for trying to be better or making a clear goal, but you don't have to WAIT. Because if 2016 has taught us ANYTHING with all these celebrity deaths is that we don't have much time on this Earth to be GREAT, so get to it!
