 Keep Moving Forward!
In the last two issues of Good News - Right Now!, we focused on strategies to help you start living your life to the fullest. Adopting the 2010 Handbook lessons listed to the right will certainly help in the attainment of this goal.

By now we hope you're making either great strides or even taking baby steps towards reaching the future accomplishments you listed.  If not, remember it's never too late to get started on the rest of your life!
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the number of goals you listed and the individual steps that are required to reach each one, simply decide to concentrate only one or two goals at this time.
The most important step is to keep moving towards your goals. As Conrad Hilton 
stated, "Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit." Abide by Walt Disney's credo, used for the title of this article, "Keep Moving Forward!"

Problem Resolution Tips
1. Write down the issue at the top of a blank sheet of paper.
2. In bullet form write down all the options you can think of that may resolve the issue. (Don't think about how they can be done at this point, just write them down.)
3. On separate pieces of paper, write one option at the top of the each page. Down the middle of each page draw a line to form two columns: name one column "Plus" and the other "Minus".
4. For each option page, write down the positives outcomes of the option under the Plus column; and write down the negatives on the other side.
5. On a scale of 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest), rate each Plus and Minus item in terms of how much it affects your (and your family, if applicable) sense of well being.
6. Total the Plus and Minus columns on each option page.
7. Find the option that has the highest Plus total. Make this option a goal and get going on it. If you need help use the formula from "Perfect Day" Vol.1 Issue 2, and begin at Step Three.
Remember: problems are only opportunities in disguise. The greater the problem, the greater the opportunity.

January 2010 is almost over.  How are you doing on your plans for this second decade of the 21st century? Did you make extra special or just the usual New Year's resolutions?  If so, are you sticking to the plan to achieve them? 
If not, don't worry you are not alone. (In fact try to eliminate worry from your life as it's never been proven to achieve anything positive or helpful. Replace worry with something more constructive like prayer and or problem resolution strategies -- see last article on the left side panel.)
Most people start heading off course from their New Year's resolutions by the third week in January.  But don't despair! Help is available, read on and visit us at 
In this issue we're sharing the 2010 Handbook, to help you to live everyday with more passion, purpose and fulfillment. You may have already received this "life-opening" advice from caring friends or family, if not please keep reading. It's almost guaranteed to brighten your day. If you've seen it before, you'll likely want to read it again. Also see the helpful tips on moving forward on the left side panel.
