Every day things happen that work contrary to your joy and contentment. As you move forward into 2014, you must be deliberate in your pursuit of happiness. With permission from the author, I would like to share with you the first six months of the happiness calendar written by Henry S. Miller, author of "The Serious Pursuit of Happiness."
I have been invited again to be a speaker at the Minnesota COGIC Leadership Conference.

This is the start of a new year and this is also the time when most people set their resolutions for change or they start to work on goals.
This year is also a time for new beginnings. The start of a new year is always a time to reflect on your life and decide to change or work on those things that you have been thinking about for a while. This year could be your new beginning.
Overcoming personal stress with pending uncertainty

Do you know what the future holds in 2014 for you? Are you now dreading the holiday season with more demands on the job, an unconcerned boss about your personal welfare, and new threats of pending layoffs? All of these things create stress and anxiety for working professionals as the holiday season approaches. Many smart buyers do not want to overspend in this economic crisis, creating a situation where the economy recovers even slower. Leadership strategists offer advice to working professionals during the holiday season to reduce stress related to all the uncertainties in 2014.
Another New Year is upon us. This is a good time to make lasting resolutions. I am a firm believer that if you change nothing, then nothing will change. To be better and happier, you have to be willing to make changes. These changes must come from within you. Small changes inwardly can have monumental impact outwardly. Start the New Year off with change for the better. Here are three steps to a happier new you in the New Year.
What is the real meaning of Christmas? With all of the hustle and bustle taking place, it is a good time to reflect on that question. In 1965, CBS debut the animated TV special "A Charlie Brown Christmas". At the beginning of the program, the main character Charlie Brown is not sure of the real meaning of Christmas. He confides in Linus that even though Christmas is approaching, he still feels depressed due to the over-commercialization of Christmas. Is Christmas over-commercialized? That is an individual question. I do believe that if we don't keep the real meaning of Christmas in mind, we may also become depressed or overwhelmed. Here are some Christmas lessons you can learn from Charlie Brown.
