I started boxing last year simply because I couldn't get to my thai boxing gym consistently enough and I wanted to train up for my first fight. But when I started boxing, without the kicks, knees and clinch, it turns out I was pretty bad at just using my footwork and hands.
So there you have it, ladies. A go-getter girl believes something within her is greater to overcome obstacles, creates a vision for her life, works to set goals to achieve that vision, and engages her passions with her professions to remain authentic to her true self.
The economy, the way people want to live and work, and a whole host of other factors are changing the way work gets done. Some companies are adapting right along with the changes, but many are having difficulties.
The people who give up on change are the ones who end up either crotchety about New Year's resolutions (and life), over do some behavior (think eating, drinking, shopping, sex) to escape their reality to dull out their pain.

The truth is, the mind has infinite room for growth. Once it achieves momentum, it will want more. But it cannot go from 0-120 mph instantly. It has to work itself up to that. If you have a desire or a dream, don't allow yourself to get in your own way. Make a realistic action plan.
If you want this to be the greatest year of your life then you must make a commitment to change the course of your life. Without commitment you will continue to experience cycles of frustration and failure. Do not just set goals. Make this the year that you create a game plan for success.
