Written by Michael D. Pollock

The word "resolve" has been showing up in my space quite a bit lately. I've no doubt it's a definite "sign ofrepparttar times." I'd like to spend a few minutes to discuss this word, what it might mean to you, and offer you some principles that can positively affect your life experience.

Dictionary.com definesrepparttar 126354 noun form of "resolve" as: * Firmness of purpose; resolution. * A determination or decision; a fixed purpose. * A formal resolution made by a deliberative body.

There are some pretty powerful words in that definition. "Firmness of purpose," "decision" and "deliberative body" arerepparttar 126355 three words/phrases that jump out at me.

Although there's nothing mind shattering aboutrepparttar 126356 definition itself, it begs this question: do you have your own resolve for your life?

Some 4O years ago, U.S. President John F. Kennedy stated: "Let us resolve to be masters, notrepparttar 126358 victims, of our history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to blind suspicions and emotions." Those words seem as relevant today as they were inrepparttar 126359 1960s.

Focus only on your breaths, countingrepparttar 126361 in and out movements. Quiet your mind. Peace lies beneathrepparttar 126362 meandering chatter of your thoughts.
