What will be your New Years Promise?
Yep promise, not resolution.
You see the former means more and is not so easily broken.
The latter on the other hand, we’ve been binning those off for years without any consequence or second thought because it’s the expectation that it will happen.
Our history will often define our future.
Your history will often define your future, is that what you want?
One of the best indicators of a persons future performance is to look at all their past ones because you will see a trend, a pattern.
Of course people can change, people do change.
Not that much though.
Do you want to be something more than your history or are you happy with living the same life on repeat, much like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day.
We all get stuck in a loop from time to time.
It’s a far more comfortable place to be, I can personally attest to this because it’s so much easier to stay in a place we feel safe, protected and emotionally satiated.
That’s often what it comes down to in the end.
We all want to feel something, something nice, warm, fuzzy and generally safe.
There is nothing wrong with this you know.
If that is the life you choose and make that choice willing without hesitation or any ambiguousness then you my friend are someone very rare indeed because you’re someone who knows themselves.
I can’t help but respect that deeply.
Say that isn’t you and there is a deep sense of longing, wanting more, yearning for something you can’t quite place your finger on, then this is worth exploring further.
Ask yourself this –
‘What am I searching for? & Why am I searching for this?’
You don’t need to share it with anyone, it’s for you to know and act on if that is your decision.
Half the battle is knowing.
The other half, doing.
To achieve this, in 2020, instead of making a new years resolution try something a little different instead.
Make yourself a New Years Promise.
