    Do you dream of:

    Starting a business?Getting fit and healthy?Reducing debt and increasing savings?Making a drastic change - quitting your job, getting out of a dead marriage or moving to another city?

    Whatever vision you have for your life this year and beyond, there is a way to achieve it. Forget feeble New Years resolutions - everyone knows they dont work. Focus instead on setting some realistic and achievable goals to attain the vision you have for your life.

    1. Commit to your vision. The first and most important step is to make a commitment. If you are not 100% committed, you are unlikely to succeed.

    2. Deconstruct the goal. What steps do you need to take to reach that goal? Write them down and regularly read it over to see if youre on track.

    3. Take baby steps. Rome wasnt built in a day, so dont expect to drop 20kgs in a month or for your finances to turn around in a few months. It takes time. But every small step you take towards that goal is progress.

    4. Visualise. Its easy to lose motivation. Lets face it, making big changes is never easy. Reaching a goal may be taking longer than youd like, or setbacks may come along. We become tired and discouraged and give up. In times like these, dont lose sight of the bigger picture. Visualising the end result is crucial in achieving our dreams.

    So keep ReConnecting with your goals to make 2014 the year you make one or two dreams come true!

    after each edition, to make a smooth sauce.4. Add the soy sauce, lime or lemon juice and half the water/water and apple juice mixture and stir well.5. Bring to boil, stirring constantly.6. Reduce the heat and simmer the sauce for 2 minutes.

    Use over chicken kebabs of grilled chicken breasts, served with rice or salads.This sauce will keep well in the fridge for one week.NOTES:Satay peanut sauce is usually too high in fat, but if you reduce the quantity of peanut butter and use water or water and apple juice to dilute it (as in recipe), it lowers the fat percentage.Peanuts contain mainly monounsaturated fats, which are beneficial fats.
