The New Year is going to be different. You’ve set a Goal to make a change. Nothing can stop you. You’ve set your intention, planned out your moves, and set a time limit.
What could go wrong?
Every year, millions of people around the world make a resolution to change. Many actually commit these resolutions to paper. They are written down, planned out, and waiting to be executed. The minute the New Year rolls around, they will take action. Unfortunately, within days or weeks, these goals and resolutions fall by the wayside, defeated, and knocked out.
It’s not from lack of trying. The punches were thrown hard, and at first it looked like an easy win. It’s not from some dumb move. Many of these goals were S.M.A.R.T. But the fight was won by the opposition through a steady and determined battle. Each time the goal missed its mark, the habit took a little. An extra punch here, an extra punch there. The habit had one thing the goal didn’t have… stamina. The habit had patience on its side. It wasn’t a brash up-and-comer. No, it was a tried and true entrenched fighter. Street smart. Prepared.
We’ve all seen fights like this before…
