The New Year will be Just Like the Old Year, Unless…

It’s not logical to repeat the same behaviors while expecting different results. For those of us who are motivated about a new beginning in 2013, I applaud you. However, be aware that if your work ethic, personal habits and spiritual focus are the same as they have been in 2012, 2013 will probably be a repeat.

Resolutions can be a great tool in assisting us in improving our life situation. We should use personal goals to motivate us toward behaviors that change our conditions. Most people require accountability both in the setting and keeping of goals. I highly recommend that you set goals and share those with someone you trust. Be realistic, make tough decisions about important issues and have a long-term perspective. Your chances of success will increase dramatically.

The truth is, if you can’t bring yourself to make any changes, get ready for more of the same. There really isn’t any reason to expect improvement. So, New Year, same old results, unless you change your approach!

There are some positive changes I plan to make for next year, so I fully believe that 2013 is going to be a great year – even better than 2012! Join me!

    So true…I’ve been making dietary changes over the past few months and am realizing even more the importance of not just setting goals, but also the importance of associating with people who strive for similar ones.

    Megan, it is difficult to change personally unless you are part of a culture of change. Like you, I find it much easier if I have the support and accountability of others with similar goals. Here’s wishing you a happy and successful New Year!
