Have you heard of the story of Attis? He lived around 1250 BC. He was discovered in the reeds of the Phrygian River, by shepherds. Later in his life, he died, and then 3 days later he came back to life.

In the official Roman calendar, around 54AD, a 3 day mourning period occurred for Attis, culminating with the celebration of his rebirth (think Easter) around the 25th of March or near the vernal equinox.

This story sounds so much like the story they created for Jesus. They took bits and pieces of the Attis story and applied it to…

Every year countless people start chasing new goals. It could be a New Year’s resolution, a new career goal, a financial goal, a fitness goal, or something else.

And every year, people start strong, then fizzle out. Or they accomplish their goal but later backslide to where they started.

This all comes down to people forgetting one fundamental truth.

It doesn’t matter what goal you are trying to achieve.

Consistency matters more than intensity.

How hard you work is not nearly as important as making consistent progress, no matter how small.

Start by setting a minimum daily goal. This goal…
