Don’t Be a Victim of the Resolution Junkyard

The Power of Mindset- think it, believe it, achieve it!

How committed are you to really changing your old habits? Going through the motions to create change is not enough. Deep down do you REALLY believe you will lose those lingering 10 pounds, quit smoking, stop negative self talk, improve your marriage, start your own company…. Or any number of things. DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU WILL FOLLOW THRU? 
It’s a valid question- case in point, New Year resolutions! What we set out to change is often more of a wish because seldom do we create a concrete plan. We lose our enthusiasm for our new goal after a week or two. And when life gets tough or stressful, which is inevitable, we make excuses and self allowances for WHY we can’t accomplish something right now or why we must delay the new journey. And to make matters worse, our friends will support us with our woeful tale of excuses. But here’s the truth- The bottom line is you have no one to blame but yourself if you don’t follow thru and don’t reach your goals.
The quickest and surest way to make sure your reach your goals is with a plan. And plans in your head don’t count as concrete- put it on paper with specific details! Furthermore motivation is a depreciating asset- I recommend it daily! This may mean starting each morning visiting a motivational website, reading a self help book, or talking to a like minded friend. Find what it is that will help you start each day inspired and motivated. But most of all, BELIEVE YOU WILL CHANGE, BELIEVE YOU WILL SUCCEED! Going thru the motions for change is not enough, mindset is the final key to make it happen. Not just a surface belief, but deep down in your core. We all have the ability to follow thru if we just harness the energy and refuel ourselves daily with motivation!
