Another year is about to start and people across the globe are making new years resolutions.
- They resolve to eat better.
- They resolve to get in shape.
- They resolve to simplify their lives.
- They resolve to spend more quality time with their kids.
- They resolve to finally tackle some home improvement projects.
- They resolve to check some things off their bucket list.
Really, there are endless possibilities, it all depends upon each individual person and their goals on the road to self-improvement or self-fulfillment.
There are a lot of resources out there to help motivate you to follow through with your resolutions but one of my favorites is Netflix. Netflix has literally thousands of titles of movies, documentaries and programming that can educate and inspire you along the way.
