New Year, New You: 5 Steps to Making Yourself a Champion

Jan. 21, 2015 Freddie Scott II

I like what Benjamin Franklin said, “Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” With every new year you have a fresh opportunity to evaluate what has been, and dream about what will be. There is a tendency during this time of year to look in the mirror, and ask life-altering questions about who you are, and assess if you on track with where you thought you would be. Regardless of where you might find yourself, taking the time to be honest with where you are, how you feel, and where you want to be is essential.

The wonderful thing about life is the fact that you are always one decision away from changing the course of things for the better. The only question is whether you will find the courage to not only look in the mirror to be honest with yourself, but will you also have the courage to make the necessary changes in order to make yourself, and your relationships better.

As you think about the things you want to address this year, there are a few things to keep in mind to help you not only identify what you want to do, but to help you actually finish what you start. This is the first of 5 articles revealing the 5 steps to making a new you!
