I have done away with traditional New Years resolutions.  I mean, they were always the same and I always forgot them all after about a month, anyway.  So in 2012 I created my first New Years “mantra,” to use as a general guide for living life throughout the year.  It worked so well for me that year I decided to make it a tradition.  I give it a lot of careful thought in the time leading up to the new year, and then I constantly remind myself of my mantra throughout that year as I need motivation to really live it.  

For the sake of preserving them for all of posterity, here is a list of my mantras since I started them in 2012.

2012 – Take More Risks

2013 – Make It Happen

2014 – Don’t Just Get There. Grow There.

2015 – Take Charge. Stay Charged.

2016 – Nurture Yourself

2017 – Make 40 Fierce!
