New years resolutions have been a tradition for a long time now, but a lot of times people do not follow through with them. My wife and I were talking about this last night and we decided to make some changes for the new year. We were going to hold each other accountable for them throughout the year, that way if one of us started to slip we had someone who could get us back on track. It’s always good to have an accountability partner, it could be a family member or a close friend. We want this year to be the most prosperous and healthiest year of our lives. We sat down and we listed some categories that we got from David Ramsey and we started to fill in our goals for them for the up coming year.

These are the categories and a couple of the things that I wrote down for my own goals, I urge you to take this and write your own goals for 2013.

Goals For 2013

1. Career:

  • I want to start my own business (I’m not going out on a limb here, I have put a lot of thought into this prior to the list

2. financially:

  • Increase my tithe to 15%
  • increase my savings by $500.00 a month
  • Start a Roth IRA

3. Physically:

  • Use my gym membership
  • Run at least 3 times a week

4. Intellectually:

  • Read at least two books a month
  • Learn a new word everyday

5. Socially:

  • Attempt to make new friendship and build the ones I already have

6. Family:

  • Make contact with my immediate family weekly (My family lives in another state)
  • Have a Baby

This is just some examples for you, i hope that you take them and really think about what you would like to improve on in the upcoming year. I strongly believe that if you do this and stick with it you will grow in your CrossWalk and it will be the most prosperous and healthiest year yet. I would like to here some feed back from you and would like for you to tell me some of your new year resolutions.
