With a new year upon us, folks everywhere are making all sorts of “New Year’s Resolutions” or “Wish Lists.”Subconsciously, we all see the new calendar and think of January 1st every year as a Fresh Start or a New Beginning.
Why can’t EVERY day be a fresh start?
It’s a well known fact that by the 15th of January…folks who haven’t made any progress with their resolutions have quit altogether.
So how do you break the cycle of broken resolutions? What’s the alternative?
Perhaps the resolutions you are choosing are “PUSHING” you….as opposed to “PULLING” you.
Let me explain.
Have you resolved to go to the gym every day, but when you think about going, you dread it and you find an excuse not to?
Have you resolved to give up sugar but whenever you see cheesecake you just have to have it?
These are examples of resolutions that are “PUSHING” you to do something. Push requires willpower and willpower never lasts.
What you need is something that will PULL you. Something that gets you so excited you cannot sleep. This is something that becomes a part of your every day practice. It’s your passion…it becomes part of your essence.
It has to be something so compelling that you know it’s going to be a gift when it happens. You also have to have strong enough reasons to continue and follow through when the going gets tough.
It becomes part of your every day focus & vision. Perhaps not as easy to accomplish, but once you gain momentum and make progress you are more likely to stick with it.
Is it to quit your job and finally have an alternative income that allows you more time freedom with your family?
Let me give you an example of what happened to me a few times.
As many of you know, I have been making a full time income online since 2009. In those first few years when I may have slacked off, money became scarce. Working from home can make you complacent, as you don’t have a boss watching over you constantly. You need to be self motivated.
The thought of going back to a “real job,” punching a clock, and having a boss analyzing my every move scared me more than anything I could ever imagine. Just the thought of waking up to an alarm clock put me into a panic. I immediately put things back into HIGH GEAR and crushed my online business.
These are the resolutions you need to be making. Make a resolution with such a clear vision it wakes you up in the middle of the night, eager for daylight so you can get right to work on whatever it is you hunger for.
So find something that PULLS you, create a vision, believe in yourself take action, see results, review it every day and I guarantee the cycle of “Broken” New Year’s Resolutions will cease to exist.
