Welcome to One Month After New Year's Resolutions

31 Days Later...
Chances are high that you have already broken your resolutions, and have already given up on some of those goals you set.

First - don't give up. It life was easy, if improvement was easy, if change were easy - we would all be perfect. None of this stuff is easy. It takes discipline, perseverance, and the power of good habits that have been built, step by step and day by day.

Second - failure is not the problem. It is your attitude toward failure. Too many people are afraid to fail, beat themselves up when they fail, and dont' know what to do when they fail. The good news is that every failure can be a learning opportunity.

Third - so, if you have already broken your New Year's Resolutions and fallen short on your desired goals, you have to ask WHY? Be sure to see the blog on Problem Solving I posted on January 23 where I taught you learned about the Five Why approach to solving problems. Failing in New Year's resolutions and falling short on reaching VERY GOOD GOALS is indeed a problem.

Four Reasons Why You've Already Broken Your  Resolutions. Check it out. Go back and revisit your goals... or just ONE Goal. Reframe it and relaunch.

Regards and God-speed on your way to your goals...
