Let your beliefs shape your goals for the New Year

As you look ahead to 2006 many of you are probably thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. Instead of just resolving to change some aspect of your life next year, try setting some measurable, challenging, attainable goals based on your beliefs.
To ensure you set goals that are worthy of your ef-forts, it will be helpful to think about what matters most to you. One way to discover what matters most is to affirm your beliefs by answering the following questions and then writing a mission statement proclaiming who you are and what you are about. What would you like to do? What do you desire? What do you enjoy most? What talents do you have? How can you best contribute to improving the world? How do you want to be remembered?
Next, plan what matters most in your life. Your an-nual, monthly and weekly plans should act as a com-pass for life, keeping you on track to do what is most important instead of what is most urgent. When you act in accordance to what matters most to you, your life will be more fulfilling and rewarding.

• That lifetime, family, chiropractic wellness care helps people reach their full potential by remov-ing central nervous system interference.
• That chiropractic care has improved your health and that you have felt the difference in how your body functions.
• In freedom of choice and the indomitable human spirit: If you desire to change anything in your life, you can.
