This year, more than ever, your plans will make the difference between a life that will bring happiness or a life that may feel unfulfilled. Design a plan about accomplishing things that you are most passionate about, and for heaven’s sake, don’t ever be afraid to fail. Some of history’s most accomplished people failed countless times. Thomas Edison, for example, failed 1,000 times until he invented the light bulb, on the 1,001st trial! Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs! In fact, if you haven’t failed, you’re not even trying! So let us follow St. Mary Mazzarello’s life-plan, which is, “Do the right thing, at the right time, in the right place, for love of God and one another.” This plan led her to paradise! What’s your plan?
