We all have goals for 2021, whether it has to do with health, wealth, relationships or happiness, but the thing with New Year’s Resolutions are that you make them … and then you break them. Hey, C’est la vie, right?
Why is it that we all start the year with renewed drive and motivation, only to find ourselves drifting aimlessly … round about this time of the year? Life happens and we become side-tracked. Research shows that few people make good on their New Year’s Resolutions. In fact US News and World Report stated that 80% of New Year’s Resolutions fail by the second week of February. Are you still working hard at it or have you become a little off course, already part of the 80%?
In Brian Tracy’s book, Flight Plan, he uses the analogy of a flight to explain the process of setting and sticking to goals for personal success. You can be sure that most flights will be off-course, but they all reach their destination. Along the way the pilot has to deal with storms, turbulence or crosswinds, which force him to make adjustments throughout the journey.
For most of us, knowing the destination is not the problem. What holds us back is making the right adjustments and sticking to it.
You are braver than you think, more talented than you know and capable of more than you could ever imagine – Roy T. Bennett
