New Year’s Resolutions – do them differently!
New Year’s Resolutions are made every year by thousands of people who, within 4 or 5 days break them.? Why is this so?
Resolutions are often a form of punishment towards ourselves for what we have not previously achieved or what we believe we could be doing better.? They are focused goals which are supposed to whip us into shape and make us feel better about ourselves.? Like all punishments, they are negatively based and we often resist them or feel guilty when we invariably end up breaking them.
I encourage my clients to think differently about their lives and what they want to achieve.? Ask yourself ‘What do I really want my life to be about?’ Many people say ‘I want to be successful‘.? But what is success? How’s this for a definition?
Success is the progressive realisation of a worthy ideal
Find out what your worthy ideal is – on your terms – not society’s. Then, New Year’s Resolutions will be a thing of the past and you will move forward differently, with everything you do infused with the values that are important to you as an individual.
Happy New Year.
