Not just in one thing but every facet of my life; faith, fitness and finances. I want to keep the momentum I vowed on the first day of the year to propel me throughout the year that will ultimately translate into being a better person and more successful at all my endeavors.
I could make a list of resolutions of trivial things that I want to change however, without consistency all those pseudo-goals will go in vain. I have been shaming myself and blaming all my shortcoming, missed opportunities and fails on procrastination. After pledging to excel pass that as last year’s resolution I realized procrastination wasn’t my problem or what was holding me back. Along with poor time management I fail to remain consistent once I’ve met a goal or seen results. I get things done and actually do all the things that come to my mind or “talk” about but I don’t do what it takes to maintain all the hard work and time I put into something. My inconsistency have left bridges uncrossed with friends & family, excess weight regained, sweats as my stationary uniform and budget forgone. Then, I’m back to being mentally and emotionally disheveled trying to find a starting place to get everything back on track.
To make a resolution and to be successful at upholding it is 100% being honest with yourself about your imperfections and weakness to pool your strengths. Only you know what you’re capable of therefore your plan for success should be foolproof. Life happens, that understandable but what are you doing to keep it from getting in the way of your aspirations? I’m beyond comparing myself to others, question my talents, wondering what if and limiting myself to circumstances. This time it’s all about doing the work so I can have everything I want.
We can’t break ourselves down into singular categories when we are so much more and it will take all of our being to plan and accomplish what it is we desire. I sometimes can be too involved in the details of a problem to look at the situation as a whole: I become completely succumb in trying to figure out where I went wrong to get off track that I couldn’t see the forest for the trees; not realizing that it wasn’t something I done but something I didn’t continue to do.
No matter what keep at it; unless it’s eating, then give that up. Now that’s a real new year’s resolution.
