Each New Year we have the opportunity to make promises to ourselves, our friends and families, our organizations, and our communities.  We call them resolutions.  We typically make more resolutions that we can ever keep, and many are forgotten by early February.  That’s why many of us don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions.

We’d be remiss if we let a poor practice ruin the meaning of a word.  So I dusted off the virtual dictionary and found myself inspired.

To be resolute is to be marked by firm determination. To be resolute is to be bold and steady.   What an awesome combination.  After all, boldness that is fleeting isn’t really very bold at all.

Make one promise to be bold, steady and determined this year – all year long.
