You might as well not even have a New Year's Resolution.
Resolute to lose weight but ya never do. Resolute to pay off your debt but, if anything, you go into deeper debt. Resolute to find true love but you barely even go out on a date yet alone find a serious partner.
Every year it's the same damned thing and every year it's the same damned result.
Say you're gonna do this really ridiculous HUGE thing...
...then not make it. Like...not even close.
It's a waste of time to make a NYR. Just take the "L" and say fuck it.
I mean seriously, why even try? You know you're not gonna make it happen anyway.
...And that's why it doesn't.
See, you KNOW you're not gonna make it happen. You believe it won't happen.
You believe you're too fat and out of shape to exercise and lose weight. You believe you're too much of a spendthrift to be able to save money. You believe you're too much of a loser to date anyone.
And thus, it's the belief itself that prevents you from achieving any sort of Resolution you set yourself out to attain.
Resolutions are bullshit because Resolutions are sort of backwards on principle.
I mean what is a resolution? A self promise to take certain actions and perform certain behaviors in order to change.
Instead of adopting the mindset first, you attempt to change habits and behaviors right off the bat, without really doing any of the mental growth necessary to achieve the sort of behaviors you ideally would like to have.
Change doesn't work that way.
Change flows from the inside out, not the other way around.
I mean you can reach your goal weight but still see yourself as the loser fat kid, ya know?
There are people that do the thing, but don't FEEL the thing.
You have to feel it and believe it first.Adjust within. Less action. More thought.
Less get to it and more lay back and relax.
The behaviors you want to adopt in your New Year's Resolution are more easily attained when you become it, mentally, first.
See yourself as a fit guy or gal and then you'll find working out and eating healthy not some sort of arduous task, but something you naturally do. It's part of who you are.
We're procrastin8rs, we're not designed to work hard towards anything, yet alone an annual commitment that we'll never fulfill.
Relax. If you want to change, do it slow n' steady. One step at a time.
The first step is to change your beliefs.
Don't go about trying to change your behaviors without first changing your beliefs.
Don't change what you do until you change who you believe you are.
