Resolutions = Excuses
Remember New Years Eve a month ago already and those New Year's resolutions you made with such determination and excitement. I am curious as to what happened to all those resolutions made about getting healthy, working on finances, improving relationships, etc.
Each year we see the same thing when the new year rolls around – gyms are packed, people are posting their smoothie recipes on social media claiming ‘this is my year’, and then by February the momentum fizzles or gets clearly lost.
Don’t misunderstand me – I am all about people wanting to make changes in their lives – I am a coach so I thrive on this. The common theme that I see consistently among people is that they set resolutions in January and when things don’t happen the way that they want or as quickly as they want they throw in the towel and those new year’s resolutions go out the window.
I am of the mindset that if you want to change something in your life – you don’t have to wait until January or a specific day of the week to do so. You have the opportunity to make change in your life at any time regardless of what the calendar says or what day of the week it is.
If you want to make changes in your life the first thing you want to do is decide what you specifically want and commit to achieving such result.
Upon deciding and committing to your target you want to get crystal clear on the reasons why you want to accomplish this and then create an action plan that you continually update to achieve your goal. Another important component when working on achieving your goals is to measure and track your progress throughout the process so you can evaluate if your plan is working and make appropriate changes if need be.
You get to decide what you want out of life and most of all have fun and enjoy the process!!!
