New Year’s Resolutions!

January 3, 2008

One thing that people do habitually every year is they make a resolution for the New Year.  They want for this upcoming year to be better (or at least different) than last year.  This is an interesting and noble ideal, unfortunately, those who engage in this practice usually never see any gains after a short period of time. 

In theory, these resolutions are great.  Sadly, the challenge is that these resolutions never work.  They never make or keep the changes.  And usually people end up with the same challenges, if not worse, than the year before. 

I always wondered why this happens.  Many times it seems that the person is resolute, determined. Many times they make great efforts and strides.  They may have plenty of motivation and gumption, fatally, the “I’ll make it happen this time” strategy never works well, nor does it last in the long run.  It is never about wanting to make the change it is always about the right strategy. 

Ultimately, the right strategy is very simple.  The people who make resolutions never make and keep those changes for one very simple reason – they never become a different person, they remain the same.  Neurologically, they are the same person, with the same emotions, and the same strategies.  Is it ever a wonder why they continually end up with the same results?  Of course not, they are the same person who would get those results. 

As you probably know, per Tony Robbins, “the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again, expecting a different result!” 

If you want things to change, you have to change.  If you want things to get better, you have to get better.  As quoted from Albert Einstein, “no problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”   Basically, things need to change in order to create a different result and again, the simple message is that you need to change you. 

It is not the desire for change that changes you, but rather the shift itself.  It is the realignment, the changing of the neurological associations that produce a change in the pattern.  Remember, New Year’s Resolutions are not the answer, you (and your new psychology) are the answer.  

You may ask how does one quickly change?  There are many technologies available.  And there are many great resources if you are open to the possibilities.  All stem from the concept of rewiring your nervous system, which establishes your resulting psychology.
