New Year resolutions are unrealistic…
If, like me you are heartily sick of all this New Year, New You stuff then let’s fast forward a month to when all this hoo hah about new year resolutions dies down. Now then, maybe you are looking back on January and thinking…oh dear, not one of those resolutions is working out.
Reason? Perhaps you didn’t really want a “new” you..the old you just wasn’t that bad…could do with a few tweaks… maybe…
The problem with New year resolutions is that they are manufactured often out of guilt, the “I OUGHT to change this” instead of “I really want to change this.”
Change is good…when it’s the right time for change and just because it’s January doesn’t mean it’s the right time.
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
Wanting to change and making new year resolutions are not necessarily a bad thing but sometimes we just feel vaguely that something needs to shift; if we could only figure out what!
I like this quote from Tolstoy because I see it as your need to align to your values being the change catalyst- not the tradition of new year’s resolutions forcing change.
The changes in our life must come from the impossibility to live otherwise than according to the demands of our conscience not from our mental resolution to try a new form of life.
If you’re not sure exactly what you want right now, I’ve got something that can help. It’s a short assessment that will help you see whether you’re ready for a change or you just need a wake-up call that life is pretty good but you need to look at it through a different lens. It’s my Midlife Crisis or Midlife Shift Assessment.
There are some great questions about values, legacy, health and fulfillment that will give you a clear picture of where you stand right now. Don’t worry, if you score low and realize something does have to change, I’ve got a special offer for you that can help.
