Instead of Resolutions, Create Change and Growth

I worked at a family practice doctor about fifteen years ago. It was the last week of December and a patient came in to discuss with the doctor about losing weight for the coming year. This is a common resolution that usually ends in failure. This patient seemed determined. She told me that she planned to eat an organic, raw diet and no sugar. I may have been convinced she could do it, but she came into the office with her snack, a diet soda and a bag of chips. I asked her if she ever ate that way before and she said no. Unfortunately, she did not keep her resolution because she committed to do too much, all at once.

I failed many New Year’s Resolutions, myself. I pledged I would exercise everyday, eat healthy (similar to the patient we had), not watch TV or be off social media, and/or not overspend money. These resolutions would have been huge to accomplish individually, but I tried them all at once. And I failed each of them within the first week of the new year.

Last night, I took part in a webinar by my friends, Roland and Galina Denzel. They talked about this very thing regarding New Year’s resolutions. They entitled the webinar, “Instead of Resolutions”. Here is a link to their website

I highly recommend them. I am not getting a kick back or paid to endorse them. They are good people who truly care about coaching people to live their best life.

I wish for you this new year and decade of 2020 be the beginning of positive change and growth! May you give yourself space to incorporate change.
