The start of the new year is an exciting and inspiring time, a time to renew your vision for your life and set your sites on worthy goals for the year ahead. The decisions made in the next couple weeks can help set the tone for months to come, giving you the opportunity to lay a strong foundation for your best year yet!
It all begins with knowing what you want.

So how you can you set yourself up to win and set goals that you’ll stick to until you succeed?

At Principia 2011, best-selling author, Lisa Nichols, shared an insight that when applied has the power to transform your life, allowing you to be more effective in every area. This concept can support you in achieving balance and feeling energized, rather than drained, by life’s demands.
Lisa used a pitcher of water, a glass, and a tray to demonstrate this powerful concept. First, she filled the glass with water from the pitcher. Then, she poured water from the glass into the tray. The glass, again empty, was then refilled and poured into the tray once more. Lisa asserted that if you give from your cup, you deplete your own supply of energy and vitality. You have to wait to refill before you can give again. Next, Lisa filled the cup one last time, yet this time, she kept pouring and let the water spill out into the tray. If you give from your overflow, Lisa explained, you give from a place of limitless abundance. You create a dynamic in which you can give to others by giving to yourself.

How is it that people can have different reactions to the same situation? Being stuck in traffic, for example, can lead to some people feeling frustrated, stressed, even enraged, while others are perfectly content to hum along to the radio and tap the steering wheel to the beat while inching along the freeway.
The difference is attitude.
Life presents you with a variety of experiences and situations. Over time you have developed beliefs about what those experiences mean, and those beliefs have created an attitude, or set way of thinking. When you have a negative attitude about a certain situation, you will experience stress whenever that situation arises.
Stress has many negative effects mentally, emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. It can cause headaches, lack of sleep, overeating, depression, alienation, and if left unchecked, over time it can contribute to serious health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure.
