I want to look at why resolutions fail.
Soul Food: Get serious with your life
This week, I want to use two words as the precursor to everything that we talk about.
There are so many aspects, or areas of life that require attention but this week, I want to focus on you getting serious about yourself, getting serious about your health, your future, your goals, and your faith.
We all have patterns and habits that shape the way that we manage our resources and one of the most important resource that we have to manage, is time. The problem, of course, is that you can't really manage time, because it just moves forward.
Moments turn into minutes, minutes turn into hours, then days, weeks, months, years. There's nothing any of us can really do to manage time, everyone has the same amount - 24 hours in every day, you can't buy time, you can't really save time or make time.
If you can't manage time, you need to learn how to manage and improve what is happening with your time. This is a simple but challenging exercise and what it really means is that you need to learn how to manage and prioritise yourself.
Irrespective of your life circumstances or whatever process you are in at the moment, you were the one that got you in and you have the ability and the potential to get yourself out.
The decision is to invest in the change of thinking that's going to affect the results that you have going forward.
I don't know if you've ever had the opportunity to see some of these great domino displays that they have. One domino can literally create an amazing pattern by knocking over a sequence of other dominoes. In lots of ways, the lives that we are building are based on the domino effect because what you do today does impact tomorrow.
If you are in a circumstance where something in the past has dominated or created a domino effect that has led to where you are now, and you aren't in a pleasant circumstance, it doesn't mean that you don't have the opportunity to use the same domino effect to put into place a course or sequence of actions that can change your life forever.
So what's your coaching takeaway? There are no rollover minutes in life and we don't get to keep the time we save. So do it now.
