Resolution or Resignation ?

Here we are, two weeks after our lofty New Years resolutions, how are things working for you?

Tough question for many of us, however this is the most critical time, will you choose to continue to Take Action on your resolutions or simply resign to another year of mediocrity? It doesn’t matter what happened today or yesterday, what matters is what you choose to do now!  The good news is, you are not a victim, you have full control, choose the path of taking action on your resolutions.

My amazing bride is a perfect example, a few years ago she chose to get into world class shape. She has always been in good shape but she wanted to move to greatness for her 40th birthday and a high end professional photo shoot. After the shoot she made a critical mistake and did not set another goal,  so she let her workouts and regular runs slip. Then recently she had some health challenges and was unable to workout at all, which of course compounded everything. It turned out the health challenges were self imposed and stress related from trying to be “the perfect home school Mom.”  One of her side effects is, she becomes dizzy when her hear rate increases, which makes it very uncomfortable to run and work out since the whole point is to raise your heart rate.  Realizing that working out, although uncomfortable,  will only help her body, she has recently been taking power walks and going to a special area in our neighborhood that has a 100 step staircase. Her goal is to simply walk up the stairs once, however each time she has done it 3 or 4 times. Her mindset is simply to stick with her resolution of climbing the stairs once, that’s it, but each time 1 becomes 2 and 2 becomes 3.

It works the same way with negative behaviors, 1 drink or bite becomes 2 and then 3 etc… The key is to use it to your favor instead of your frustration, choose to take action on your resolutions instead of taking action on negative behaviors. You can do it! I believe in you!
