Do you want to hear the only New Year’s Resolution you’ll ever need?
According to Time Magazine, the top 10 most popular (and most broken) New Year’s Resolutions are:
- Learn something new
- Get out of debt
- Spend more time with family
- Travel to new places
- Be less stressed
- Drink less
- Lose weight
- Get fit
- Quit smoking
Trouble is they’re all things you just do, not the real things you actually want to achieve.
The resolution I’m going to give you has helped people find that life changing job, educate themselves to get the future they deserve, start their own business, prove they’re ready for promotion, see the world – the really big stuff.
So, for all those of you not old enough to have owned the original LP’s from the musical Rock of Ages, let me share one line from a Whitesnake song called Hear I Go Again – a line that not only sorts out your resolution blues, it could put you on track to achieve everything you want;
- You don’t want to travel to new places – you want to see as much of the world that interests you before it’s too late, while you can
- You don’t want to lose weight – you’re fed up with the way you look and the way you feel about yourself and don’t want to feel that way anymore.
- You don’t want to volunteer – you want to make a difference, put right an injustice and cleanse your soul
- You don’t want to spend time with your family – you want to leave a legacy, let them know how you feel, make the most of all the time you have before the day comes when you’ll never be able to see them again or they can’t see you.
You get the idea.
So have a look at your New Year Resolutions, and change them from what you’d like to do – to the reason you’re actually doing them.
And then say “I’ve made up my mind; I ain’t wasting no more time.” (That’s the line from Here I Go Again by the way)
Because time is ticking away my friend and the teeny, tiny steps – those individual resolutions – will only ever take you to the foundations of your hopes and dreams.
Normal New Year’s resolutions aren’t time related – apart from a vague sense of something you’d like to do in a single year.
It’s almost like they were created to keep the masses happy with lots of little achievements – so they never have to get the silly notion of reaching for the stars.
Stating why you’re trying to achieve something allows you to recognise which actions will drive you towards its realisation – while also showing you who and what is wasting your time or stopping you from getting there.
Whatever IT is that you want to do, be part of or become – give it the level of importance IT deserves and dismiss anything that pulls you away from achieving IT.
Decide today that you’ve made up your mind and you ain’t wasting no more time.
Have a great 2013
