A Golden Opportunity for Real Change
The beginning of a year seems to be a catalyst for starting new ventures, new commitments, and changes that help us be better or live better.
A friend sent me this great quote as the new year began. and I would like to share that quote with you (grammatically correct or not ... here it is):
"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did" (author unknown).
As you begin or continue the process of setting your personal and professional goals, keep in mind, if you really want something different, you are going to have to do something different. Check out the article on increasing your self-confidence.  See if this is an area for improvement that may help you reach all your goals in 2010. Have a great year.
Successfully yours,

I encourage all of my women readers to take the assessment to see where you land on the self-confidence scale. If you know of other readers who would benefit from this assessment, please pass it on.
Men, I will continue looking for resources designed especially for you. As of this newsletter, I have not found resources, on this subject, that are readily available just for men.
