Maybe you’ve been discouraged because the better future you’ve been hoping for still doesn’t seem to be on the horizon.

At some point, though, you’re going to have to make it happen. It’s going to take focused, intentional effort. That’s what it means to be a leader.

I was thinking about this because of my recent health scare. Thankfully, I survived this time due to the talent of some great doctors. But it got me pondering the larger questions in my life.

Particularly, how committed I am to my personal and business goals.

So now you have the old year behind you and you’re looking forward to building a new, more successful, year. The potential is there, and it’s time to get moving.

This could be your breakthrough year. Do you want to get focused and apply all your energy to that?

If not this year, then when?
