This Year I Will…..

Each New Year thousands of people like you and I make resolutions to better their life, whether it is to get healthier, accomplish a goal or to learn to enjoy life more.  But if you had the chance to ask these people how they were doing with their resolution just six weeks later you would find more than half of them either lost sight of their resolution or never made the real effort to begin it in the first place.  The biggest reason for this is that change of any magnitude that takes some effort becomes too difficult for one reason or another that we can justify to ourselves. 

This past year a stumbled across a little book titled “This year I will…” by M.J.Ryan.  The book centers around the fact that people will get inspired to do make a change in their life but they become frustrated and lose the momentum to keep moving forward.  This is a well written practical book that gives a lot of insight into why people find it so hard to make a change in their life and what they can do about this to become more successful in reaching their goal no matter what it is.  One thing that I have always found interesting is the face that people will make a New Years resolution and when they don’t complete it, they just stop, not even making another effort to begin.  We can make resolutions each day, it does not have to be at the beginning of the year.  Sometimes we make things harder for ourselves than necessary, if you drop the ball on your goal, just pick the ball up and start again, isn’t this for you?  The important thing is that we keep trying to reach those goals that we would like to reach and not let failure or slip-ups stop us.  So have you thought about what you want to do this year?
