What comes to your mind when Christmas is over and New Year’s Eve approaches?
For a majority of Americans it’s College football and the NFL playoffs. So, aside from that,
what comes to your mind? I think for most people it’s a time of reflection of the previous year and looking
forward to the New Year.
I do firmly believe in making New Year Resolutions. But if you really think about it most of these new goals and commitments are usually never followed through on and we fall right back into the norm of making ends meet, doing the 9 to 5. I read a report a few days ago that memberships to fitness clubs soar in January and that by Valentines Day it’s all back to normal.
A friend of mine , Joel Comm, started a New Year’s Resolutions Facebook page on Dec 27th and it already has over 8000 likes! Yes, I liked it because I firmly believe it making theses resolutions for the New Year.
Another friend of mine from my High School days, Sean Salisbury, a former NFL quarterback and present sports announcer made a post on Facebook which took a different approach to New Year Resolutions. I also ‘liked’ it because it holds an incredible amount of truth in it.
I’ll give Sean’s post and the description of Joel’s Facebook page.
Let’s go Unfiltered on this: New Year’s resolutions are nothing more than a fad diet for procrastinators. Been there! If you are going to make changes no need to wait till midnight on New Year’s eve, get our ass moving now. And if you want to really change your life then think BIG. Quantum Leaps. Put Deadlines. Cross off little wins along the way. And dominate this change. And make these changes because your damn gut knows you have to for a better life. Not because someone told you too.
For resolutions to become accomplishments your CORE must change. So when you’ve had enough—-start/attack/finish!!!!
Are you ready to make changes in your life? Perhaps you want to lose weight or get physically fit. Maybe you want better relationships. It could be that you want to connect more with God. Whatever your resolution, this is the place to post the change you want to make in your life and get support from a global community!
Both of them are great. Inspiring. It’s 2014, Now go make it happen!!
