The ritual begins, for me, right around Christmas. I find myself wondering about the coming year. Indeed, as I write, 2022 looms before me like a blank canvas. And I ask myself—how do I want to fill it?
Thus begins the Annual Writing of My New Year’s Resolutions. I suspect many of you may be doing the same.
We do it even though we know that New Year’s Resolutions rarely bear fruit. Most of us (80%) give up by the second week in February.
So this year, I’m approaching my Resolution Ritual quite differently. I’ve discovered a better way to bring my dreams and goals into reality. I invite you to join me.
Don’t just Resolve…Rewire! Most resolutions focus on changing your behavior…an incredibly arduous task. Rewiring, however, focuses on changing the cause of your behavior—your thoughts.
Here’s how it works. List your resolutions (or goals) for 2022. Then ask yourself this question: What thoughts are coming up regarding this Resolution?
If you notice any negative thoughts that conflict with your desires, immediately replace them with more beneficial ones and continually repeat them. Instead of “I’m not smart enough,” keep telling yourself “I know I can do this.”
Granted, this can take concerted effort at the outset. But I promise, it works. You’ll be amazed how quickly and efficiently your behavior will change as your thinking shifts.
I’d love to hear what you are resolving to accomplish in 2021? Share here. It would be my joy to help you bring your Resolutions into reality.
