With Christmas behind us and the New Year upon us, we begin to think about how we can change our lives and make promises to ourselves and our loved ones about how this year will be better than the last.
It takes about 4 weeks to a month to break a habit, or to make lasting changes. That is just long enough to start to get discouraged, and give up. But, what if you made a plan? Then the goal has smaller easier goals, bite-sized, to help you work up to the final achievement? Doesn’t that sound a little easier? What if you had a helping hand to assist you on your way? Someone who can provide encouragement, and practical advice for the big obstacles and small discouragements that come along, especially when you are actively pursuing a change? It might just be helpful, and turn a pipe-dream into a reality in your life.
As a result, I am going to be offering something new and different to my readers. Starting in the New Year, I will have a subscription service available to help you with any New Year’s Resolutions that you want to make…and actually keep…this time around.
Bear in mind too, that I’ll be working on a resolution of my own: Completing The WATER Method Book. I’m actually going to apply my own methods to my own New Years Resolution, and post the results here.
Thing is, getting the job done is not going to get done overnight. Its going to take time. I think a lot of people lose sight of their goal as a result of the time it takes to make the changes. People don’t like to wait to lose the weight, or to quit smoking. The sad part about that, is that time is a necessary part of making the necessary adjustments to your life. It took you that long to get yourself into that habit or way of living. Its going to take a bit longer than a few weeks or even a few months to make the change.
The point here is, don’t give up. If you want to make change in your life, give yourself an appropriate time table to make that change. Otherwise you’ll find yourself getting frustrated and breaking another resolution.
P.S. – Or, you could work with me, and I’ll help you make the change more permanent in your life. Its one thing to keep yourself in check…its another thing to have someone help you through it. Its up to you. 😉
