So you've set your New Year's resolution by now? Maybe you've already decided that you won't keep it/given into the temptation of not doing it. If it was to diet, maybe you've already eaten two big slices of that chocolate cake or you will now I've mentioned it. If you haven't or won't then good for you! You have strong willpower. Power to you.
It's Ok if you let it slip once, but you do need to be strict with yourself if you want results. This is a time when it's not bad for you to look ahead to the future, because while it might give you satisfaction for a milosecond or longer, how will you feel about it in a day or a week's time? Making little changes is more beneficial than making a mega change which you'll only do once in a while. Little changes make more difference than something you do once in a blue moon. Persist with a small thing until it becomes part of your every day routine. Resillence also plays a part here. Resillence is the courage to continue down this path, even with the obstacles that life presents. To keep going no matter what and know that obstacles will come to try slow you down takes a really strong person. I know you have that strength inside.
So, are you going to give up at the first hurdle, or are you going to keep going to see how many hurdles you can overcome?
Hurdles = obstacles or temptations.
Hope tis helps!
