A New Year can be a time for new beginnings. New Year's resolutions are one way to make changes in your life... go to for the extraordinary and live your dreams... but only if you make them stick. So here's how.
This is what you have to do to keep that New Year's resolution alive, regardless of what your resolution is. Plant your determination and "watch it grow." Understand the cycle of success and how it works so that you keep looking ahead and adjusting your path.
