Living Your Resolutions
If you’re like most people, by now you’ve broken all your resolutions for the year. I know—many of us have given up on making resolutions all together. Year after year we make resolutions, and promptly break them a few weeks, or days, or hours later. New Year’s Resolutions don’t work. Why even make them?
I still believe in the importance of New Year’s Resolutions. There’s something formative in remembering that we have not yet lived into our potential and planning to do so. The problem is not in making resolutions, but in the way we do so.
Perhaps now is not the time to give up on your resolutions, but to make a new start on them.
So, here are 4 steps to living your resolutions—or 4 steps to changing your life.
You can make almost any change in your life if you really commit to do so. This is what it means to make a resolution—to resolve to do something. To resolve means to come to a definite or earnest decision; to determine to do something. There’s power in resolve.
Most of us really make New Year’s Wishes. We wish something would change. There’s no power in wishes. Don’t make any wishes this year. Make a resolution—commit to making a change, no matter what.
