Ah, tis the season for New Year's Resolutions. Some people have already decided on their New Year's Resolutions. (Some of them were at my gym this morning. I noticed things were more crowded than usual.)
Others haven't decided on resolutions yet and will put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) on Wednesday or Thursday of this week. Still others wait to plot goals until sometime later in January or February.
What are your "resolutions" anyway? Are they wishes?
A wish can be defined as a desire, longing, or strong inclination for a specific thing. A wish is mostly a thought.
A resolution can be defined as a decision to do something. A resolution is action oriented.
Whether or not you will be successful in achieving your resolution or resolutions depends on how bad you want it.
To get you thinking, answer these three questions about your most important resolution:
Why do you want it?
What are you willing to give up in order to get what you want?
How bad do you want it?
If you don't want it bad enough to give up a bad habit or behavior in order to achieve success, then rethink your resolution. Pick a new one.
Keep going through the process until you have a resolution you're willing to fight for, then you will be successful. By "fight" I mean change your behavior.
