As we approach the end of January I believe this question is at the forefront of most peoples minds, even more so than the beginning of the month. I mean how likely is it that anyone ever successfully starts their New Year resolutions on the 1st of January? You need to at least give yourself a day or two to get a feel for the New Year, right?
“New year, new me? Surely I should have got the figured out by now?”
Panic mode is on, it’s almost the end of January, you still haven’t got it figured out yet so what hope does this give you? Well if it’s any consolation, you’re not on your own, I don’t know my year plan yet, in fact, I don’t really desire to have one, but anyway less about me more about you because that’s what you’re here for right, the answer?
If this is the year you have decided to make a change, I praise you. I mean let’s face it most of us aren’t 100% happy with the way that we look or how we feel physically or mentally, we spend hours scouring, wishing. hoping and comparing ourselves to others in magazines, on Instagram, adverts, films, and so on, we’re exposed to so much exposure it’s overwhelming. However truth be told most of the people you desire to look like or want to be more like have their own self-doubts and hang-ups anyway, so comparing yourself to others is a big waste of time “Comparison is the thief of joy” so Roosevelt once quoted. So what exactly is it you want to change? What does it mean to you to change? Why do you want a “toned tummy for the beach”?
These are all of the questions that you should be asking before you make any kind of commitment or promise to yourself.
You must ask yourself “Why?” and some examples of that would be:
“Why do I want to change?”
“Why am I not happy with how I look and how does this make me feel?”
“Why is changing my appearance/health/fitness so important to me?”
“Why now, why not 6 months later?”
Intense, invasive and prompting questions will provide you with something very special. Dig deep and you will find the answer they say, well whoever that ‘they’ is it’s a matter of fact. If you dig deep enough you will find the answer to help you get to the destination, will you be happy? Probably not, but let’s not go there today – let’s just provoke an idea of achieving destination unknown for a moment.
