Can you change your entire life JUST because of a page on a calendar? That’s what the old-school idea behind New Year’s Resolutions would have you think. So is it realistic to put all your eggs in one basket and totally buy that?
I doubt it.
That’s a BIG thing that people have told me they don’t like about the dreaded Resolutions: why does it being a certain date really make a difference?
In other words, if you really want to do something, what’s stopping you from doing it right NOW instead of waiting until an arbitrary day? (Or at the very least, taking a step in the right direction?)
If you’re counting on nothing but a calendar page to make you do something (old-school resolutions, that is!)…..well, I don’t have to tell you that it’s probably NOT gonna work. Sound like a recipe for big-time failure. Setting yourself up for the impossible. Why is that?
Because the motivation doesn’t come from YOU….it comes from outside. And from not a very reliable authority, either! (The calendar staring at you can only make you do SO much, believe me!)
Still….I do kind of get why it happens. Who wouldn’t want their New Year to start TRULY fresh? Would old-school Resolutions really mean ditching the the crap that’s been bugging you for YEARS? And FINALLY getting over the things holding you back and having an awesome life right NOW?
Sign me up!
But the thing is….change rarely comes that fast. You usually don’t go from zero to sixty in 5 seconds. I don’t know anyone who went from couch to full marathon in a week.
And unfortunately, just because you SAY something is going to happen doesn’t guarantee IMMEDIATE or LASTING change any more than a calendar page does.
BUT STILL….that does NOT mean that you shouldn’t have big vision. That does NOT mean that you shouldn’t go after your big dreams. And it DEFINITELY does NOT mean that you shouldn’t believe in being ALL that you want to be.
It just means that it might take some time to get there…..and that you can feel FREE to take the pressure off of yourself to be perfect right away!
Now, isn’t THAT good news?
Wouldn’t it be amazing to take the excitement, the inspiration, and the celebratory ceremony of a New Year and combine it with some good ol’ fashioned practical and pressure-free earthly reality?
THAT, my friends, is how BRILLIANT things start to happen. And keep happening.
How? By accepting yourself as you are RIGHT now. Opening up to all of the possibilities for you. And having a BIG and UNLIMITED vision for your life.
And THEN taking it one step at a time.
