For many of us, the hopeful New Year’s Resolutions we embraced at the beginning of January have long since faded from our minds, overwhelmed by the demands of everyday living which can distract us from even the best of intentions.
There are many examples of motivating figures who can inspires us to become our best selves.

At the same time, we invite you to share your motivating thoughts with us on social media using the hashtag #NMVGoals. We will be happy to interact with you by sharing, liking and re-tweeting the best posts.
