Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead.
What’s It Going to Be?
This is the fourth week since setting your goals for 2017. Just saying you’re going to make a New Year’s resolution really isn’t enough; you must have the right mindset and be completely dedicated to what you want to do. Even though around 60% of people have stumbled on keeping their resolutions by the six-month point, those who make the initial commitment are still 10 times more likely to successfully change their behavior. Congratulations on being that person who is way ahead of the crowd when it comes to change, but you are not out of the woods yet. The first mile marker to yearlong success is to make it 30 days! If you are younger, chances are it’s a little easier. The older you get, the harder it becomes to ditch certain habits or bad behaviors. Middle age is when people begin to slow down on their resolution making. When asked how likely they were to make a resolution in the new year, 54% of people under age 45 said very likely, compared to 37 of those aged 45 and up. Stay strong and ask yourself, “What’s it going to be?”
Something to Think About
Does that mean that we don’t care as much as we get older? Have there been too many failures? Too tired?
It’s time to get re-energized! Regardless of age, or excuses, let’s pump some energy into those goals and resolutions this week!
