I heard a statistic last week that said 78 percent of people who made a resolution for 2013 have already tossed them aside, given up, said “Oh well, I can’t do that.” Oh my friends, that wasn’t even two weeks into 2013. Let’s not be a part of that group.
If you like computer terms, reboot. Even if you’ve caught yourself not pursuing what you said you would, reboot.
“What you think about, comes about.” We could easily change that saying to “What you focus on, comes your way.” Re-read on staying focused that I sent you in 2012.
If your goal/resolution/target doesn’t energize and excite you to keep walking toward it over and through obstacles, then re-energize it by re-wording it in such a way that you do feel energized by it.
There’s something I’ve determined to incorporate as part of my morning start-the-day routine I’ve noticed has slipped the past three days. I am here re-, re-, re-ing with you. Join in, it is much more fun than saying “Woe is me,” “I’m a failure again,” or whatever put-downs you are saying to yourself.
Instead say “Self, let’s get with it! I am seeing the attainment of my _________________ and it feels good. I am going to do whatever it takes.” I wrote about writing down a heart-racing goal here.
Keep at it, my friends. The life you are changing is your own.
