A New Year’s Resolution is a promise to yourself to do better, to erase bad habits and form good ones. Yet it can be hard to make those changes stick.
Why is the decision to change for the better so hard?
Habits and mindsets do not form instantaneously. Neither do most of our problems. It takes time to get where we are.
Changing those habits, mindsets and fixing problems take time. Reaching our dreams is a process.
Are you moving toward your dreams, or away from them at the moment?
If you are moving away from your dreams, don’t wait for a new year to start making positive changes in your life. Each day is an opportunity for a fresh start.
Resolve to make a positive difference in your life today.
Begin by cultivating a grateful heart and mind. If your life looks, or is indeed bleak at the moment, this will take time. Don’t give up.
Start and end each day recording at least three things for which you are grateful. They do not have to be big things, they can be very small things.
Next, find a book, mentor, coach, teacher, accountability partner and/or group that will encourage you to grow, develop better habits, and become a better you.
Today really is the first day of the rest of your life; and what a precious gift it is!
