After two decades of life and countless New Year’s Resolutions made and unfulfilled, it can be hard to come up with positive New Year’s Resolutions that aren’t punishments. Here at FFL, we want to help you prosper every day. A new year presents 365 opportunities to better your life in so many ways. If you’re looking for a few resolutions for 2017, try out a few of these. Try and spread your resolutions out across various parts of your life. If you make five resolutions each year, don’t make them all about your health, your career, or your love life.
Pick a few resolutions that fit where you see yourself going in 2017 and will affect many aspects of your life. Resolve to read more books, drink more water, and give more compliments. Resolve to read the entire Bible, stop eating fast food, and shop at small businesses more often. The possibilities are endless, but it is up to you to choose the resolutions that will work for you. They don’t have to be easy, but don’t pick something you know you can never do. Don’t resolve to give up fast food if you work at Chick Fil A. Definitely don’t resolve to read 300 books this year if you know you’ve only been able to read 25 a year in the past. Be realistic with yourself and you’ll be much happier all year long.
One of my biggest and proudest accomplishments of 2016 was keeping two of my New Year’s Resolutions, and I want to help you keep yours too.

4) Read the entire Bible
5) See more live theater
6) Shop at small businesses more often
7) Give more compliments
8) Plan a vacation
