Peace of mind and success are achieved one wise choice at a time.
Big picture goal setting and New Years resolutions are great because they give clarity about what we truly want. When taken too seriously, however, the changes we strive to animate can become so overwhelming we risk giving up.
On the most basic level, we want our daily actions to be congruent with our goals. If we can be consistent with positive daily actions, understanding that we will slip up, we can forgive ourselves along with way for unwise choices, making it easier for ourselves to make a better choice next time.
Make the decision to approach happiness and success one small choice at a time. If you slip, just commit to making a healthier choice next time and follow through.
