Last post we explored the power in making resolutions. But how do you avoid the situation of most - making New Year’s resolutions, only to break them in a few weeks?
Resolutions made because it’s the trendy time to make them are not resolutions at all. They’re usually half thought out, premature, and broken shortly thereafter.
A real resolution is usually slow and deliberate in the making. It’s the result of dissatisfaction with your current state of affairs, and a vision of where you want to go. You must do the necessary critical thinking, examine the potential challenges your decision will entail, and be prepared to overcome them.
When you have examined it completely, and understand the nature of your resolution, then you’ll move forward without fear or doubt to its completion.
Now don’t be surprised if once you make the resolution, you immediately face a torrent of temptations to take you off your path. This is the universe testing to see if you are real. If you’ve done the process right in making the resolution, you will prevail. Those temptations and your victory over them are what build the character to become the person you want to be.
Ain’t it great!
