With the calendar turning over we have what is almost always the most hopeful part of the year. If you’re anything like the majority of Americans you’re probably making resolutions and determining that this year is one that will see you making progress in leaps and bounds. With this renewed sense of focus the plan is to control that which eluded in the past. Well allow me to remind and reinforce the maxim that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. In order to change what first must change is your thoughts. Our minds lead our actions, which turn into habits, which turns into character.
