Depending on where you get your numbers, somewhere between 81 percent and 92 percent of New Year’s Resolutions fail. Translation: At least 8 times out of 10, you are more likely to fall back into your old habits and patterns than you are to stick with a new behavior. Behavior change is hard. No doubt about it. Why is that? What are the biggest reasons new habits fail to stick? And what can we do to make positive changes easier? I don’t claim to have all the answers, but after two years of researching and writing about the science of behavior change, let me share the most practical insights I’ve learned so far.
All-star athlete Zach Truett finds glory on the high school football field — working to earn a college scholarship and a ticket out of town. When a devastating knee injury forces Zach to the sidelines, his brother laces up his cleats to compete in track and field. Despite the setback, there seems to be one silver lining for Zach — he soon develops a budding relationship with a young nurse who works at the hospital. It’s not going to be nominated for any awards, but the story is captivating and redeeming. If you like a good comeback story, you’ll enjoy this film.

A Simple Plug for My New Tool, POWER ROUTINES.
I have experienced the power of the Living God as I have intentionally insertyed Gratitude, Scripture, Journaling and Prayer into my morning routine.

From the ground up, these folks partner with farmers who don’t settle for anything less than the sweetest, heartiest, most nourishing fruits and vegetables. They then freeze everything within hours of harvest to lock in the nourishing goodness of peak season ripeness. Their in-house chefs and nutritionists craft recipes that are both delicious and bring a little something extra to the table. All delivered to your door and ready to enjoy in minutes. I love these simple solutions!

“What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.”
