    52 Weeks to Success in 2013

    Tammy Johnston

    Happy New Year! The time for fresh starts and better endings. The time for setting resolutions that this year will be different. Did you know that the top three New Year’s Resolutions are:
    1. Lose weight / get in shape
    2. Improve your financial position / make more money / get out of debt
    3. Stop smoking

    Personally I am not a fan of resolutions. I find resolutions rarely, if ever, work. Resolutions are all about the start. The moment you have a hiccup, fall off the wagon, or don’t do something absolutely perfect you quit. The standing joke about New Year’s Resolutions lasting till about January 2 is unfortunately way too accurate.

    On the other hand I am a huge fan of goals. Goals on the other hand are all about how you finish. Goals are more realistic, have a plan, and don’t expect you to be perfect, just persistent. Goals deal with the daily and weekly steps you need to take in order to achieve your objective.

    Over the next year, in 52 easy steps, we are going to take you through everything you need to look at to set up a healthy and balanced financial plan. If you are committed to doing the work you will be astounded at the positive changes you will see in your bottom line, your plans for the future, and your general state of being.

    Financial success is not rocket science and doesn’t require anything more than a decision followed by simple daily and weekly actions. I challenge you to make the choice to really make 2013 different, not just for the first few days or weeks, but for the entire year. Build upon the things you already know and do by making small, incremental steps towards the life you really want.

    I look forward to taking this journey with you and seeing where we end up on December 31, 2013. Please feel to write me with any questions or comments you may have.
