Usually, by this point in the year, most have abandoned their new years resolutions.
Ideas are the easy part.
Most people don’t understand that in order to make changes that last, YOU also have to shake yourself out of the bad habits too.
This effort takes a combination of mental, emotional, and physical ACTIONS committed to and adhered to for as long as it takes.
If you’re faltering or you’ve already lost your mojo, the real question is whether or not you were on the right track in the first place. If the answer is no, then it’s time to re-configure your goals and aspirations for the year.
If you’re on the right track and simply stuck, it’s time to find out why.
The only way forward is to be present with yourself long enough and consistently enough to discover the answers so that you can take the right action and keep moving forward. You can’t do that when you’re too busy being busy.
Stop. Reflect. Write down your thoughts long-hand and then commit yourself to getting back to work. When it comes to your own personal success there is no such thing as ‘auto-pilot.
