Why do we make New Year’s Resolutions? Is it worth it? Are you successful with them? All good questions….and ones I ask myself around this time every year!
Why Make a New Year’s Resolution
Why make a New Year’s Resolution, if we don’t keep them anyway? I know! We have all these good intentions, but then life happens, and just seems to get in the way! But yet every year, even if I say I’m not going to bother, I do it anyway! I guess I’m always hoping this year will be THE YEAR for all those promises and dreams to come true!
With my direct sales businesses, I always want to improve on them, and grow. After all, it is my income I’m talking about here! So one of my main resolutions for this is to be more consistent in putting forth effort! This is yet another “why am I doing it” question! If I can’t grow, then I should just give up, Right?
But, in reality, it’s just another day! So why wait until January 1st to actually start to put effort in to whatever it is we plan to do!
That answer is simple, too! It’s tradition! Yep, that about sums it up! It has been ingrained in to our brains for such a long time, how could we NOT do it! Our parents probably did it, their parents probably did it…….well, you get where I’m going! Between that and all of the subtle and not so subtle reminders we get on a daily business, it becomes front and center, doesn’t it?
Why I Plan to Make a New Year’s Resolution
So why AM I making New Year’s Resolutions yet again? It is just another day, after all! BUT…..(there’s that big three letter word that holds so much meaning)……..one of these times, I WILL succeed! “I can and I will! Watch me!” is one of my mantras! Our minds believe what we tell it!
We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are. – Max Depree
With all of that being said, I need to make some resolutions, and I need to do it for me!
My New Year’s Resolutions!
My resolutions are the usual….lose weight,
Same ole, same ole! If I would have stuck to these for longer than a month (Honestly…more like 2 weeks, or days, or hours), I wouldn’t be making the same ones again! But it is what it is! That’s why we have to make New Year’s Resolutions!
But adding to that, I also want to be more consistent in my businesses! I want to focus on growing and learning, and putting those things in to practice! And I’m going to get a team going! Interested? Contact me!
Begin the bombardment!
So, with the start of the new year, comes all the weight loss commercials, the endless infomercials, what to do and what not to do! I WILL stay focused on my end goals, stay in my own lane, and NOT buy in to something just because it looks like an easy fix!
If it was easy, everyone would be doing it!
There, I said it! It’s in black and white now, so I must do all the things! I’ll be back with updates on how it is…..or isn’t going! In the meantime, follow me on Instagram and Pinterest, or my Facebook business page! It’s about to get real in there!
