A Look into New Year’s Resolutions

2017

New Year’s resolutions are funny things.  The beginning of the year is like this magical time that we wait for, to do what we have been wanting to do for a long time.  Some of us ponder all year about what we want to do in the New Year.  Then we finally narrow down what is really necessary to be done and make a pact.  I am going to ______________ as soon as the New Year gets here.

Some common resolutions are: to lose weight, get fit, eat right, quit smoking, make more money, get out of debt, learn something new, spend more time with loved ones, and travel.

Do we REALLY want these things?  Of course we do.  Then why do so many resolutions never come to fruition?  Why don’t we always follow through with the plans that we make?

The answer to this question is a simple one, but not always an easy one.  As we live in this world, all kinds of ideas and beliefs enter our minds from many different sources, some that we accept and some that we don’t.  Some of these ideas turn into beliefs.  When we accept them they become habits that are replayed in our minds as facts.

Examples:

Everyone in my family has a weight problem.  I’ll always have one.

I’ll never be able to make that much money.

I don’t deserve to be happy.

It always has been this way and it always will.

 

Where these beliefs came from doesn’t matter.  What matters is that you don’t believe them.  It is VERY likely that they are just not true. So the answer to the question is, if you will change your beliefs you will change your world.  If you believe you can do it, you can.  Don’t limit yourself because of false ideas that you have accepted as true.  You can make that New Year’s resolution come true.  Start adding positive true statements to your belief system.  Think of them several times a day.  Visualize them as reality.  Figure out what it is going to take to make it happen.

If you want to find out just what it is going to take to make it happen, I can help.

Let’s figure out how to get from your starting point to your destination.

What is your destination?

Where do you want to be this year?

Do you feel the challenges of life can’t be fixed?

Are you ready to do what it takes?

What are you waiting for?

It is right here and can you have it.
