Reluctant to Resolve?
I know, I know, it’s that time of year again— goals, resolutions, aims— and you’re skittish. I understand. What’s the point of dreaming and thinking and planning, if come next December, you’re right back in the same boat?
You’re reluctant to resolve. You see no earthly reason to make big plans and then not have the time nor motivation to follow-through except upon occasion. Your get-up-and-go has got-up-and-gone.
I get it.
So how to stay motivated?
For instance, if you tend to be nasty or neglectful toward your mate: Can you envision a fantastic marriage, full of love and happy times (the carrot)? Or, conversely, do you respond better to envisioning the idea of that once-loved-one leaving because of your abuse (the stick)?
Is it the positive or the negative scenario which inspires you to lasting change? Keep that image before you.
Look in the mirror. There stands a powerful person. No one else can hold you back. No one else can beat you down.
Rise up and face the new year with resolution and joy. Opportunity calls.
