How are you treating that New Year’s Resolution?
Sometimes the inertia of (past) habitual life can pull you away from from your new desired path. It may require someone else to hold up the mirror to you in order for you to see your true potential, and a better way of reaching it. Take this opportunity to quietly renew your vows to yourself. Accept some coaching:

- Often you must fall to find your balance. Get up, brush yourself off and start again.
- Renew your commitment to yourself. Promise yourself.
