Why do so many people who make New Year resolutions fail to see them through? Gym memberships sky rocket at the beginning of the year. In the weeks that follow, gyms are packed with well-intentioned new members who set out to finally get into shape and make that wishful transformation. Soon the crowds in the gym dwindle as the majority of new members lose motivation and quit coming as they give up on their goals. They return to the same habits and behaviors they are comfortable with and have known all their lives.
The truth of the matter is that for many a New Year resolution is just another form of procrastination. It creates an opportunity to escape the work that is necessary to make the change that is wished for. It also creates a false sense that the change will actually happen.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines resolution as “the act of finding an answer to a conflict, problem, etc. : the act of resolving something.” Not very motivating. Conflicts and problems are not very appealing. Alternatively, Merriam-Webster’s second definition of revolution is “a sudden, extreme, or complete change in the way people live, work, etc.” Now that’s more like it.
Transformation requires major change in the way you work, play, eat, sleep, manage your time, and most of all…how you think. Click here for a few tips to help you develop a revolutionary mindset so you can get on track to obtaining the transformation you’ve always dreamed of.
