Resolutions Are For Wimps

Happy New Year!!

We all rang in the new year last night by either watching the ball drop, partying with friends, snuggling with our kids, hanging out at church, or praying, like I did.

It’s an exciting time. Each new year, we have the opportunity to be better, live better, work harder, and achieve more.

We have the chance to change the things we didn’t like about 2012 and move into greater things in 2013.

It’s a clean slate. A fresh start.

The beginning of something wonderful… if we let it.

How do we get to that something wonderful? By making resolutions, of course!

What is a resolution anyway? has one definition as “a resolve or determination” – very good definition for how the new year starts off.

We are determined to change things, lose weight, get a better job, work harder, relax more – many, MANY resolutions are made for January.

However, why is it that we tend to lose our “determination” after just a month?

We put in some time, some effort, some abilities, but when we hit a snag, we tend to throw in the towel and say “Forget it! This year is just going to be like the last.”

Why do we do that? Because in our minds and hearts, deep down, we really haven’t set a firm foundation for determination, for resolve, for standing firm. We have somehow allowed a way of giving up in our minds even before we start.

New Year’s Resolutions are for wimps because most of us give up on them before we even start. Instead of making it about the new year, let’s make it about a better life.

Some ways you can do that are…

…by making life-long goals, not just those that last a month.

…by setting your goals with measurable, attainable milestones.

…working on a 6-month goal, and break down the steps into monthly “to-do’s.”

…determining in your heart, mind, and spirit that nothing is going to keep you away from reaching your goals. Review them often to encourage yourself to continue to step toward them.

Let’s stand firm this ENTIRE year, not just for a month. Become a resolute person. Be strong. Take charge of your life. Determine to make ALL of 2013 great!

Let’s put the true definition to our resolutions this year and make it our best year yet!!

One of the best ways to reach your goals is by sharing them with others. When you have someone else asking you how it’s going, you are more likely to make it happen! Share your 2013 goals in the comments – I’d love to hear!!
