Lack of commitment.
Many enter the New Year toting resolutions that were drawn up with a blind eye. You know what you want to do, but you haven’t thought out exactly how you’re going to do it. It’s as simple as this: actions really do speak louder than words, and vehicles don’t run on empty tanks. You can’t get moving if you don’t turn your own wheels, so fuel that engine of desire and get to working towards a bigger, better you.
Which leads us to our next point. Hate to break it to you, but “being more healthy” is not an adequate resolution. You may ask, “But what’s wrong with wanting to be more healthy?” Nothing at all. The real issue lies within the lack of specification of the steps being taken towards achieving your goal. Why do you want to be more healthy, how can you do it and what’s going to help you get to where you want to be? The more specifically you define your goals (maybe you want to consume less fat and thus will opt to eliminate one trip to your favorite fast food restaurant per week), the more realistic they will become.
This is the big resolution killer. Most of the time, we tend to make resolutions based on what we think we should do and not necessarily what we want to do. To obtain something we want is to reap rewards, and where there are rewards also exists dedication. It’s a no-brainer that you’re happiest doing what you love, so why not turn things around for 2012 and work towards something you’re passionate about? Remember that your own happiness comes first before anything. Happy resolution making
