There are all sorts of buzzwords going around as people look to recreate themselves for the new year. To me these two words are extremely important and while they seem to be opposite forces, I believe whole heartedly that for either to be truly effective they need one another.

We need to be accountable for what we said we would do, to follow through on our promises, to continue when all we want to do is quit and to know someone or something is watching to see our actions.

Forgiveness is where we accept our faults, our stumbles, our imperfections and we allow ourselves to start anew. We allow ourselves to move forward without the baggage and weight of our previous shortcomings and disappointments and we truly believe success is right around the next big obstacle.
Let’s make it a habit of practicing BOTH in our lives and the lives of those we love, coach, teach and mentor!
