With 2017 just around the corner, I’ve been spending a lot of time reviewing my goals from last year so I can start setting new ones. I love the start of a new year. A clean slate, a fresh start, and new opportunities. Sound good to you? Me, too!
With each passing year I get older and older and sometimes negativity starts creeping into my mind…”You’re too old to make this happen.” Have you ever had those thoughts? If not, you’re probably just too young and one day you will. But today I have some encouragement for you. Just a few facts to inspire you when you sit down for goal setting as the new year approaches.
