As we enter into the new year, many of us have made resolutions to become healthier, to save money and to become an all-around better person. How are those new goals working out? Have you given up already?
It can be a struggle sometimes, but support from family and friends can go a long way. On Sunday, my pastor, Rev. Dr. Clinton Brantley of St. Matthew Baptist Church, provided these tips to jumpstart our new year.
Using the acronym START, here are a few ways to live a happy, healthy and prosperous year.
S – Stop making excuses – Stop being a victim of your circumstances and make things happen.
T – Taking inventory of your life – Learn from life’s experiences and grow from those opportunities.
A – Acting on faith – Have the faith to change your life for the better.
R – Refocus your thoughts – Life is shaped by your thoughts. Focus on what’s most important.
T – Trust in God – In all things, trust in God to lead the way.
Allow these steps to help you live your best life! Happy New Year!
