Can you believe? It is January 1, 2015. 2015 sounds very futuristic, at least for me it does. What is going to be different about 2015 for you?
Each New Year we make resolutions to lose weight, make more money, stop a bad habit, save money, etc. Most of the time the resolutions are not kept. Okay I am one of those people. I want to lose 10 pounds. It is simple all I have to do is exercise more, stop eating sweets, stop drinking lattes, and drink a lot more water.
Only, it is hard to push myself to do all the right things in order to obtain my goal of losing 10 pounds. We are creatures of habit and it difficult to break those habits. It is comfortable and we do not want to be uncomfortable, so we do not take the steps that would allow us to accomplish our goal.
I just watched and listened to a TED Talk by Mel Robbins. She was saying it is simple to get what we want but we have to “force” ourselves to take the steps that will take us there. “Force”, break habits, put one foot in front of the other, do not make excuses and do what it takes to get what you want.
Are you willing to feel uncomfortable in order to get what you want? Are you discipline enough to go outside of your comfort zone? Here’s to “forcing” ourselves to make the effort that can change your life. Here’s to a New Year, a clean slate!
