The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.
– Helen Keller
This should be the quote for starting 2019 with a bang. For me, for you and everyone of us.I changed my thinking when it comes to New Years Resolution. They can make sense, but not in the conventional way.
Here’s what you should be aiming for in 2019 and why.
I don’t want you to make a new year’s resolution in the conventional way. Instead I want you to make a commitment. See, if we start things over and over again and we don’t push them through. We don’t back our words up with actions. We lose respect for ourselves.
Not only that, our friends and family start rolling their eyes when they hear us talking about our goals – and we all know it. We all have that person that says he’s gonna do X and Y and Z, yet never even remotely tries to finish that goal.
What I want you to aim in 2019 for is enhanced commitment.I don’t want you to set a goal that you’re not fully committed to reach. I don’t want you to set an unrealistic, unattainable and broad resolution.
Instead, I want you to be fully specific and act as if your life depends on it, or do nothing at all.
Have enough self respect to back your new years resolution with actions. If you can’t do that, set a smaller goal that’s going to make you better.What matters is that you reach it.
This will put you in a positive spiral that might just transform your life, if you’re committed enough. In this very moment you’re awake. This is your chance to display your commitment. There’s no need to wait for the next day or even the next year, start now and today and take action!
Set realistic goals and hold yourself massively accountable. Write down what you’re going to sacrifice for your goals and your detailed action plan, and just don’t stop. While discipline and commitment may seem like enemies at first, they’re our highway to everything we’ve ever dreamed off.
Financial freedom, physical fitness, mental toughness all those traits stem from an original commitment and the iron discipline to push it through. Discipline equals freedom. Remember that when you make a New Years Resolution.
Are you absolutely committed to reach it? Let me know.
