It was only a month ago, but I’m sure for many, both the New Year and the resolutions that came with them are distant memories.
How many diets have been busted? How many workout programs have been abandoned? How many smokers are smoking again?
If you’ve already broken those promises, here’s what you do:
Take a look around. Know that anybody you see has likely broken their resolutions as well.
Then, start them over.
People have gotten into this mindset that we can only improve ourselves but once a year. The New Year brings a new you and when the shine wears off the list of things we want to do to better ourselves, so many of us shrug our shoulders and figure they’ll try again next year.
The fact is, there’s no good reason not to start again. Why not try again to hop on the treadmill or throw away the smokes? Are you really going to give yourself another eleven months of bad habits? That extra eleven months is not going to make it any easier to change next year.
It’ll just make it harder.
So, forget about the fact that you’ve blown your New Years Resolution.
It’s a new month, so I ask each of you to kick off your New Month Resolution. Today.
And, the good news about that is, that if you fail, it’s the shortest month of a year so in a few weeks you can start all over again 🙂Copyright 2017 Original content authorized only to appear on Money Beagle.
