Today’s Resolution: Create Positive Self-Fulfilling Prophecies

Today you’ll be telling yourself that you can lose weight, you will quit smoking and you do deserve that promotion. And gosh darnit, people like you!

I’m sorry if this resolution sounds like a Stuart Smalley (video) but if you keep telling yourself that your life sucks, your life is hard, that you’ll never make more money, you’ll never be happy, or that your boyfriend is cheating on you…. well, you can absolutely make all of those things a reality just by thinking that way.

Instead, think that your life is happy and amazing and it will be! Stop creating problems that don’t exist, or they will. Besides, nobody likes hanging out with negative Nancy’s or complainers (seriously, we won’t ever tell you, but we’re thinking it).

Sometimes the first step is teaching your mind to shut up when you start diving into a pool of negativity.

In the words of Barney Stinson, “when I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead.”

Be awesome instead.

Today’s Resolution: Stop Supporting Unsuccessful Decisions

Sometimes our pride gets the best of us. We make decisions and we stick to them. Sometimes our decisions don’t pan out the way we wanted but keep supporting them with our time, attention and money.

There have been times in my life where I have made poor decisions only to keep making them so I wouldn’t look like a chump or a quitter. Today, put to rest any poor decisions you’ve made in the past. Stop feeding them and move on.

Today’s Resolution: Review Your Debt

Debt is a serious issue for a lot of people. Today you’ll be taking a good look at what kind of debt you have. I’ve been personally using online applications like Mint and Ready for Zero to help me figure out where I’m spending my and how I can reduce any debts in the future.

Don’t be afraid, face your debt head on.

Today’s Resolution: Go Rock Hunting

I’ve been feeding my inner geologist over the past couple months by going emerald mining, gemstone cutting and rock hunting. In fact, last week I bought a Facetron lapidary machine so I can get into cutting my own gemstones and the guy who sold it to me was a real craftsman.

So today, fire up the internet and find out what kind of rocks and gemstones are found in your area. Think of this as a treasure hunt. Can’t do it today? Then plan a trip this summer.

Then, find a of couple spots and go digging.

Good luck and let me know what you find! We just went digging for Emeralds in Hiddennite, NC last month and it was awesome.

Today’s Resolution: Grill it Up

The summer is here and that means one thing, BBQs! Take some time today to grill something special for your friends or family. We just got these sweet marinade & salad dressing combo packs the other day, so I’ll be making Amanda some grilled chicken. Don’t forget the charcoal or propane!
