There is a new year and a new opportunity to do something different to get different results in some areas of our lives than we have done so far. I really like a quote: “If you keep on doing what you have always done, you will keep on being what you have always been. Nothing changes unless you make it change”.
Exactly. We are talking about change here. And New Year is one of the occasions to change things. I say one, not the only one. I’m sure you have set many times on various resolutions to start or end up doing something in order being more satisfied than ever before. And then, within two months, the set resolution suddenly dissipated like steam above the pot. I know at least one such person �� We simply do not realise that change and its successful completion requires time and effort. We want everything right now, and we do not realise that patience is one of the most important features to meet our goals.
Creating what we want to change has taken some time. But we would like to change it overnight. Just before falling asleep place a wish and waking up in the morning as someone else. But ouch. In the morning we find that nothing has changed itself that we will have to do something again and again to change.
Motivation “Whoever wants to win must start.”
I think the most important part of fulfilling our resolutions is why we are doing it all. Yes, it’s our motivation. What do we really want? What should be at the end of our efforts? How does it look and what do we actually feel? Can we be specific enough to target our next destination? What, then, is our need to be fulfilled? It’s a lot of questions. Only when we really know why we do or don’t do it can motivation arise. But don’t get mistaken. Nobody else can motivate us. It is not possible. We can only motivate ourselves. Someone or something else can only help us, support us. But the main part of the job is just ours. And then thanks to motivation, we start the action, do anything needed and set out on the road. Did you ask yourself the inquisitive questions that show you the way?
What do I really want?
When I want it to happen?
What does it look like?
Is it really about me?
Is the fulfillment of my goals a benefit to me and others?
If you have answered your questions clearly and specifically, we may step to the next level to set our goals up. And we will do it next time …
