“The start of a New Year is always special. There is a feeling of renewal as we look to a new year, a new beginning and there is a sense of excitement for making changes or adopting new habits.

I want you to be successful at one goal, only one goal this year—and that is accomplishing one small goal you know you can accomplish. So start small. Make a promise and keep it…make a promise and keep it. And soon you will enlarge your strength, confidence and capabilities to discipline yourself to achieve other goals.

And if you carefully consider what you want to be said of you in the funeral experience, then you will find your own definition of success.

I wish you well on your journey in the New Year. You have the potential for greatness in you! Go for it! Start small. Make a promise and keep it. ”

I wish you all a Happy New Year!
