Don’t make a resolution – make a commitment

It is already 2017, the start of a brand new year. WOW! Are you just as shocked as I am how fast time just flies by?

With the start of this New Year, most people are making their resolutions and plans for improvement. Sadly, most of these resolutions are the same exact ones that were set last year and either given up on or never started.

I have a challenge for you this year! Instead of making a resolution, make a commitment. Now, I know you are thinking, “What is the difference”?

A resolution is defined as: a firm decision to do or not to do something

A commitment is define as: the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause/activity, or an engagement/obligation that restricts freedom of action.

The difference? A resolution is simply a decision to make a change, while a commitment is a sacrifice that helps keep you focused on the long-term result by making consistent step-by-step changes or improvements.

Don’t make a resolution to lose weight, make a commitment to changing the way you live.

Don’t make a resolution to stop eating out, make a commitment to choosing healthier foods.

Don’t make a resolution to go to the gym, make a commitment to living an active lifestyle.

The list could go on and on, but you must shift your focus. You must stop making resolutions year after year and start making commitments. Commit to yourself, you are worth it. Commit because YOU want to. Commit because you are ready. Commit because it’s time.

There are so many things out there at the beginning of each year promising you great results, with little work. Don’t fall victim to these products or services anymore – find yourself someone who can help you commit to a process that will give you long term change with improved health, fitness and self confidence.

You can do it! Happy New Year!
