It’s a most wonderful time of the year!
The time when we get to look back at our accomplishments and decisions, wipe the “year slate” clean and set ourselves up for what’s to come.
Do you do New Year’s resolutions?
How does that work for you?
According to the University of Scranton. Journal of Clinical Psychology in a study they did January 1st, 2014, only 45% of people said they always make New Year’s Resolutions.
Of all the people polled who made resolutions at one time or another, only 8% actually achieved their success.
Why do we fall off the wagon?
Aha – a goal sparks a behaviour but it’s “fueled behaviour” that takes you to the finish line.
Here’s what I mean.
You see you actually have to grow into your goal.
You can’t accomplish a new goal by being the same person.
And what fuels the behaviour change to accomplish that goal is “burning desire”.
So while a goal will make you recognize that you will need to initiate some new actions, being proficient enough at those actions to actually realize your goal will take two things:
How much of each?
Just start and find out.
If your goal is meaningful enough – fuel for change – then you will be inspired to learn what you need, in the right amount of time, to BECOME the person you desire.
Goals aren’t acts, they’re evolutions.
Give yourself the gift of YOU this year.
There is no one more deserving
