Every year, at this time, people set out to make their New Year’s resolutions. Lose weight, eat right, exercise more, improve credit, save more money or pay off debt. Are any of these on your resolution list for this year?
People start the year with a bang and fizzle out as quickly as they start. Why else would January 17th be Ditch Your New Year’s Resolution Day? But TODAY is January 1st – Commitment Day.
Resolution is defined as a firm decision to do or not do something while commitment is defined as the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.
Last year, one of your resolutions was to lose weight. There are numerous ways to lose weight but of all the options, you decided to get a gym membership and go on a diet. You made a firm decision to do those 2 things to reach your desired goal.
How long did it take for you to go back to your regular eating habits? How long before you stopped going to the gym? Did you ever really start? Did you last until January 17th? February 17th? August 17th? Did you lose the weight you resolved to lose at the beginning of the year?
Probably not and here’s why.
You weren’t committed. You know you needed to lose the weight. That’s why you made the resolution but you weren’t committed to the actual weight loss. You weren’t dedicated to doing the necessary activities to reach your desired goal.
This year make the resolution AND make the commitment and recommit as often as you must to make it through the year.
