Let’s think about what you want to accomplish in your life. How about dreaming big! Something about starting over gives us the permission to dream big. We think about the changes we want to make and make a resolution list. Resolutions are fun if they are kept, but not so fun when interest is lost. We all start off with the best of intentions and then something happens and we can’t keep our commitments. According to statistics, 80% of resolutions fail by February. Oh boy! I have heard of many excuses, some I have given myself. Instead making excuses, let this year be your LEAP year and do something out of your comfort zone.
Stop standing on a CLIFF and take a leap (small leaps are good too)! What does CLIFF mean?
C – Can’t find the time (Too much trouble, effort, and too much money)
L – Lacking the motivation to keep you going (You have to know why do you want this to begin with)
I – Ignoring your commitment and falling into old patterns and habits (Laziness)
F – Frustration because you aren’t getting the instant gratification
F – Forgetting why you started. This is common. Know Your why you are doing this.
