Fantastic! An Early Resolution For 2012 That You Can Actually Keep

We're coming up on another new year. It's still a bit more than a month away, but it will arrive upon the scene faster than we realize. With that in mind, let's agree to make a new year's resolution we can keep, OK? After all, 2012 promises to be a year of changes, a year of surprises, a year of shake-ups, personally, professionally, globally. Some even think that on Dec. 21 of next year, the whole thing will come to an abrupt end. So, why not get the most of it?

First a quote, then the resolution, then a closing quote. You won't have to make any further resolutions. You'll be covered until next December at the earliest, maybe longer. Depends on two things: Your resolve, your attitude. I'll allow you to determine your own participation in both.

The quote: "You have two choices in life. You can dissolve into the mainstream, or you can be distinct. To be distinct, you must be different. To be different, you must strive to be what no one else but you can be." Alan Ashley-Pitt.

The resolution: In 2012 and beyond, I will be nothing but my best self--authentic, real, available, and open.

Too much? Tone it down if you must. But I guarantee this is one resolution you can keep, if you want to. It will not only make your year an amazing one, it will change your life forever.

I remember an episode of TV's Two and a Half Men where Alan tells his son Jake, on the first day of middle school, to dress to blend in, keep to the sidelines. He told Jake that you don't want to stand out. You might get hurt. The key is low key at all times.

Wow. What a way to go through life. Not me, not you.

This coming year is destined to be your best year yet. That is, if you decide to make it so. So, decide. See you on the other side of January!

Final quote: "If you're not pissing a few people off, raising a few eyebrows, you're not living big enough." Erin Brockovich
