Keeping Your Resolutions
You took the time to make them, why not benefiting from them.
If it was easy then anyone would keep their resolutions. What is easy to do it is even easier not to do. If you are sick and tired of making resolutions and not being able to keep them, you are not different than 95% of the people that quit on their resolutions. Be in the 5% that makes them and keeps them. Here are a few thoughts to help you.
1. Program your elephant. Create crystal clear mental pictures of the results you want into your subconscious mind. Run the pictures over and over until they are firmly lodged in your mind.
2. Tap into your willpower. Focus on the rewards. Keep the pictures in front of you.
3. Tackle one resolution at a time. Break each one into small doable steps. Reward yourself for being consistent at first, then for making progress and securing small gains.
4. Don’t give up. Resist to temptations to revert to your old self. You will regret giving up.
5. Change requires commitment. Be honest with yourself. Don’t be self-deceived.
6. No pain, no gain. Expect ups and downs. Leverage your emotions. Make them your allies.
7. Be open for learning. Have fun. Learning and growing into a new self is fun.
Thank you for reading and reflecting on today’s nuggets. Please pass them on to others.
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
