This will be your best year ever!! take a look inside yourself, make the correct changes, and start living the life you've always wanted.
ARE YOU INSANE? No, this is not a joke; I really want you to answer the question, “Are you insane?” You, like most people will probably answer the question with a very confident “No”. Albert Einstein described insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”. So, if you are not insane, why start off the new year with a resolution, why have the same outlook on life, why take the same approach when dealing with your loved ones, career, exercise routine, or spirituality? You may want to rethink the question before you answer.
You, like most people, including myself, started several new years in the past with a resolution. Resolutions are typically based upon an action of some sort that will change your current existence. These resolutions are made with such sincerity that most people are so determined to achieve this resolution that they fool themselves. The problem that so many people experience when attempting to maintain their resolution, is that resolutions are based upon actions and behavioral changes. However, actions and behaviors need to be changed not just with other actions or behaviors, but with a change in mentality. Consider this, fitness gyms witness a skyrocketing enrollment of new members the first week of the year. However, most of the people who sign up stop working out by the 15th of January. Why is this? It’s probably because in their minds, they can visualize what they want to achieve, but it’s physically harder to accomplish. Mentally you can see your new summer body, but after two weeks of hard training you may look the same, which may in all likeliness be discouraging. The action was joining the gym and the behavior was going to the gym on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the mentality was the same, and therefore most give up and go back to what is comfortable to them.
