How to make effective resolutions and keep them. From James Ray.
1: Find Inspiration-create goals/intentions of you want and you are passionate about, not things you think you should do.
2: Specify your Intentions- be specific with your goals
3: Maintain Attention - energy goes where attention flows
4: Be Grateful
5: Be Enthusiatic- enthusiatically act! Act from your outcome, not from where you are now.
