Resolved!

By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Success, Prosperity.

So I’m reading Orrin Woodward’s new book, Resolved 13 Resolutions for Life.  It’s a fascination look at how many legendary figures in history resolved to build lives of virtue through the simple practice of daily resolutions.  Then he offers his take on 13 resolutions he’s made to live his life by.  So of course I’m all over this book!

For George Washington, the big issue was developing character.  Probably a lot of people today would be shocked to learn the challenges he faced and the work he had to do on himself.

Ben Franklin was perhaps the most brilliant of the early American revolutionaries, but in his younger years was widely despised for his arrogant manner.  (Of course I couldn’t relate to this in the least!)

Theologian Jonathan Edwards devotedly wrote 70 resolutions and then read them once every week for the rest of his life.  Orrin details this on page 20 of the introduction.

Which was the point I set the book down to begin my own list, which I will read every week, for the rest of my life. 

You in?

We are IN Randy. I have spent a week on Chapter 1. Reading and rereading it. Figuring out what Orrin calls "your north star". It's been fun learning and growing. I've been highlighting and taking notes. My poor copy is going to be wore out by the time I get done, for sure, but it is so worth it. Any thing that Orrin has spent 18 years researching you know is fantastic and life changing. God Bless, Malissa Betz

Hi Randy,

I like your blog and I would like to read the book but the writers selling site doesn’t offer shipping to European countries and unfortunately the book is not for sale at Amazon.com.

Selling the book on Amazon is the quickest and simplest way don’t solve this, don’t you agree?

I would like to inform the writer about this but his site is a bit rudimentary and a lot of functions don’t work including the contact function.

Maybe you can help. Does his book offer an email address that you can pass me on so I can contact him?

Thanks a million Randy

Hi Randy! I just think that there is a revolution of leadership coming toward us now with such a fast pace that we won't be able to hold it back! I have been reading your blogs a while already and I must tell you, you are playing a big part in it! Thank you! And as me being part of Orrin Woodward's team for a while already, I believe that Orrin is living fully every minute in the day, and he truly lives by all the 13 resolutions he has written in his new book! Randy, thank you again for doing what you're doing for the world!

Sorry but I juts don't get the "resolution" thing...it sounds so mechanic and simplistic to me. I am who I am a powerful authentic man. I behave in the most authentic way always. I'm not sure what is the mechanism of "practicing resolution" is about? It's like you wake up one morning and decide what a=or how you want to be and then you write those decisions down and repeat them? I don;t get it Randy...it might be appropriate for people who live on daily rituals or something...not sure...

Randy, I've been around a few years, and have realized every one of us has a gift! It is what makes you, you and me...well me. We regognise this gift when we hear or see an artist. Sinatra, Beatles, Van Gough etc. . Networking is giving some of yourself to someone else to better their life. If they know that you care, and accept your gift, you will both gain. Just be you!

I was looking for an example of what kind of things you could write-how to write them so they are open and not setting oneself up for another dose of perfectionism! 'Think I got the drift, so I'm in Randy! I have some work to do with a few areas in my heart, and some purpose and business goals I am manifesting -affirming those intentions each day keeps it forefront in my mind and more than just a wavering thought. Maybe we can all share one or a couple at some point? Thanks for sharing the book-that was nice of you!

Thanks for the recommendation on this book Randy. While I pursue goals and try to create habits that will help lead to their achievement, a list of resolutions to live your life by is certainly inspiring. I'm in!

I just went through a 2 day program last week entitled Ideal LifeVision, which seems to be along a similar line. It involves writing and then recording your life vision for the next 12 months, in your own voice and set to Baroque music. You listen to this everyday to reprogram the subconscious mind, and then re-write and re-record when you've accomplished things and/or want to set new goals for yourself and your business.

Another one for the reading list then. My bedside basket is overflowing with inspiration!

I read Ben Franklin's auto-biography a while ago and was fascinated by his journey.

WOW! what a trip! I have been writing little "reminders" for myself for many years. It never really dawned on me that these are the bridges to cross for me to become who I am meant to be...!
Thanks Randy!

Thank you! Wow...seems challenging, but so very worth it! What are some of the resolutions you came up with (if it's not too personal)?

I will start with: being focused, self-acceptance, being positive...

I also just did a tele-seminar with Marc Allen who suggests a "one page plan" where you write your goals (business in this case) on one page, keeping it simple and straight forward. Like: "I will increase my profits by 50% in the next year - and then a simple outline of the how's etc..." Good advice there.

Thank you for your inspiration!

Yes and definitely get the book because it actually lists the ones that Franklin and Edwards made for themselves.

Hi Kristen-

Right on. From my experience if you just focused on self-acceptance and loving yourself, that transforms all areas of our life.
