If you stepped back and looked at your daily routine objectively, as if it were happening to your best friend, what would advice would you give? Slow down? Take a few deep breaths? Spend a few moments enjoying one day before another day crashes in with new demands?

You need to give yourself such loving advice—and listen to it. It is important to thrive, not just survive. To have healthy, exciting and fulfilling relationships with others, you must first have a healthy, exciting and fulfilling relationship with yourself. Don’t be so busy taking care of others that you forget to take care of yourself. You can’t be your best self if you’re not your own self.

Make 2012 wickedly successful

There’s no reason why 2012 can’t be your biggest, boldest, most wickedly successful year yet. However, for that to happen, you have to match your big goals with some real changes. You have to take on a successful mindset that doesn’t take “no” or “I can’t” or “I’m too tired” for an answer.
