What are your New Year’s resolutions? How are you going to grow in 2012 to be a better person, a better company, a better coach, a better mom or dad, a better friend, a better husband or wife, a better cook in the kitchen, a better mentor, a better… a better whomever you are and whatever you do.
I ran across a quote from the late Jim Rohn that said “I used to say I will take care of you if you will take care of me. Now I say I will take care of me for you if you will take care of you for me.”
A friend of mine posted this blog on facebook from the Harvard Business Review which provoked me to type this up. We all see year after year the standard resolutions for the new year. They’re basically the same each year. The question is how can you grow and stand out from the crowd and not just be the same? Food for thought.
At the end of the day we all deal with life. It’s an up and down roller coaster! Don’t let your highs be too high or your lows too low. High or low is gonna happen no matter what! How you react to any situation is the outcome of any situation. Balance is key.
Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. All of us at Urban Floor wish you a loving and prosperous 2012! Work, work and work at your best with passion! Happy New Year 2012! Whoever you are and whatever you do… be your BEST!
Personally and professionally strive to Grow, Grow, Grow!
