13 reasons you struggle to keep New Years Resolutions…

New Year’s resolutions are simply brain teasers!

This is a brain teaser to me lol

Struggling every year to keep your New Years Resolution? What exactly is a New Year’s Resolution to you? I like to think it’s a promise to oneself to improve their lives in one way or another for the new year.

Don’t believe the hype people talk is cheap.

My issue with it is it’s really a trick we play on the brain, not so much a resolution at all. Mind over matter, right? We tell ourselves we want to change for the better, yet we also plan a day in the future to do it on. The brain just does not work that way once you speak it you move into action. Our attention spans as adults shouldn’t be that of a child’s but due to drugs, alcohol, cigarette and whatever other horrible stuff you put in the body it is. Many adults suffer from ADD and sugar doesn’t help as it to is a drug that kills off millions of healthy brain cells.

Change today not tomorrow. You don’t even know if you’ll make it to the date you set. If you were serious you wouldn’t have to pick a date. If you were ready you wouldnt need to pick a date. So throw out the date right now!! Were not doing that mess this year. Start today with whatever you want to change for the better. Set a big realistic goal for yourself and 3 tiny goals to reach it.

If you really want to act on a desire or thought you must do it when you’re the most motivated. How do you know if you’re the most motivated? The most motivated you will every be about something is at the time of excitement. The first initial thought. Well if you think it you can achieve it, right?

Thinking about the way the human brain works…

At the moment your mind is telling you to lose weight for example that is when you should start creating a plan and putting it into action. They say it takes about 30 days to break a habit or make a habit routine. Why would you wait until you are no longer motivated such as next week or next year? Why would you allow the brain to go on to its next thought without acting on the thought before?

What happens psychologically speaking is…

Your body falls back into the normal routine you have set for yourself prior to your great idea to change. When the New Year comes your motivation is just zapped, you waited way too long. Your mind forgot how very important your thoughts at the time were to you. Then you start feeling worthless or weak because its no longer important to you but is important for you to change. Now it feels forced and nobody likes that feeling…

About that word, change…

Change tends to stay around much longer when we are naturally more motivated & when the change is not intimidating. Starting with small goals while working up to one big goal is the way to change. The failure to act right away can mean the difference between you walking to your destination vs you being dragged against your will.

What I am struggling to say is…

Normally when you want to do something and your motivation is all the way there you don’t need any help. Once you wait you will need someone to pretty much drag you kicking and screaming to just complete one small step towards your every goal.

Too much thinking and not so much doing is the road to failure and I don’t think you want to go that way. It is what it is, we are just so busy doing things we don’t want to do, spending time with people we don’t want to be around, and helping others way more than we help ourselves. You guessed it, it’s called work. Many of us have to prepare ourselves to go out in the world and work a job that we don’t like at all, that preoccupies our time.

This year & every year after, ditch the resolution and just start. Let’s agree a New Year’s Resolution is an excuse to not start something right away. A form of procrastination at it’s best! For example “Ill pay you back when I get my income tax check” you know how people say that just to make you feel better, then they get that income tax check and forget you existed.
