You see, it doesn’t matter how bad that little doll wants to move into the living room to watch tv because it will only happen when the master is ready for it to happen. Let’s just say the doll miraculously somehow moves into the other room, as soon as little Jimmy or Jane come back to the house, all shits going to break loose.

Many people make plans to improve their health, happiness, and financial situation. That is all great and dandy, but how many people actually stuck with their resolutions last year? Sadly, not many. Only 12% of resolution-makers from last year actually succeeded. I'm not telling you this to depress you, I am sharing because in this post I am going to give you some tips that can help YOU be part of the 12% in 2018!  So what was it about that 12% that made them stick with it? Were they just born with a strong mindset? They had the right circumstances? They got lucky? No! These people took thought out, meaningful steps to ensure that they achieved their resolutions.
