The Decision To Try




“Resolutions are most often empty promises for those who have an abundance of dreams, but refuse to wake up and live them.”
Steve Maraboli

The New Year 2016 is staring us in the face. And a New Year always starts off with an array of promises and resolutions that will all be forgotten like a whimsical fairy tale within matters of days.

Like most people, you have probably made resolutions in the past that went unfulfilled. It is easy to give up on making resolutions because you have convinced yourself you just can not change.

Think about the changes and improvements you would like to make. These can be about anything, not just the usual …stop smoking and lose weight, ‘big guns’ that everyone associates with New Year’s resolutions.

Ask yourself the following questions to get you started and then add questions of your own:

What can I do to improve my  health...Drink more water?…Eat healthy food? …Take exercise? How often? Maybe start off once a week but increase by one day each week for the next few months.

What can I do to be more successful at work?…Can I manage my time better?…Focus on what is important rather than routine?

It is often the smaller, more discreet resolutions that are most effective and that can be built upon to reach bigger overall goals.

Let your desire to make changes for the better for 2016 motivate you to focus on what is important to you for the coming year. Remember. every accomplishment begins with the decision to try.

“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes… but no plans.”
