You’ve probably heard of “Quitter’s Day” – it’s the second Friday in January and the day when studies show the majority of people quit their New Year’s resolutions.
I have some thoughts about this...
Resolutions are usually about “fixing” what is perceived as “wrong” with us, and very often motivated by a reward that is only available once we have achieved the goal. Let’s say you make a resolution to begin an exercise program. You then look to the so-called experts to tell you what you should do in order to achieve the goal. The operative word here is achieve, and then when the goal is not attained, what follows is “I suck – I failed – what’s the use?”
Resolutions are about achieving and often come from a place of “I’m not good enough as I am right now” and a need to attain this goal to gain others’ approval.
Intentions are about creating a goal that is heart-centered and aligned with your value system – the motivation is internal. In this way, starting an exercise program is motivated by your own desire to practice better self-care and the importance of staying healthy because you value the ability to be of service to others.
Intentions are about receiving and come from a place of “I love and respect myself and deserve to manifest my intentions for my self-growth."
Living a full life isn’t about making some half-hearted decisions based on others’ expectations of you that don’t have any meaning for you. That’s not what truly confident people do.
Instead, make confident choices based on what really matters to you, and trust your heart, intuition and the universe to support you all the way.
