This New Year's, instead of making a resolution you may break, go a step further and come up with a bigger plan that will change your life for the better, Dr. Robin says. "Decide what it is you need to do in 2008—what it is you either need to let go of or to embrace so that you can hold on to your truest self," she says.
Start making your plan for the new year by inviting courage into your life, Dr. Robin says. Once you have courage, you can start telling yourself the truth about relationships and situations that need improving, she says. "There is nothing better that you can offer yourself on this New Year's Day than the gift of truth and the promise that you will live free," she says.
