New Year’s resolutions are typically burnt to the ground with the first opportunity of an easy way out.
I’m going to eat CLEAN…oh hey look someone brought donuts. One won’t hurt me.
I’m going to work out more…alarm goes off and you casually roll over to hit the snooze button like its no big deal.
I’m going to be more personable and less distracted…arrive to an event and everyone has their phones glued to their face, I guess I might as well do what everyone else is. Nobody here must want a social interaction.
Stop this nonsense of starting and stopping something so quickly.
Many of us are very accountable when it comes to others, but what about being accountable to yourself? My month of December was so consumed with everyone else, which is great, but it’s not what is always best for everyone.
- How are you going to help someone out financially when I myself am broke?
- How am I going to inspire someone when I haven’t succeeded at anything in my own personal life?
- How am I going to raise my children to be the best men possible when I have screwed up so much and done many things I’m not proud of?
- How can I impact others if I never have time to be productive myself?
And, the one question that always haunts me in the back of my head and is the single greatest motivation for EVERYTHING I do to move forward…
What happens if I don’t take time to care and better myself, and in return causing me to not be alive to see my children turn into men, husbands, fathers, supporters, leaders, and greatest versions of themselves? I can’t stand the thought of not doing EVERYTHING in my power to be around for my family as long as possible.
This person, here in the picture, is the only one to ever truly DEFEAT me or talk me out of anything. I HAVE to stop letting this person get in my way of what needs and has to be done in order to be the best possible, most present, and provide the best opportunities for my family as absolutely possible. .
2020, I am here. I am ready. I am ready to make you the year I will always remember as the one that propelled my life to new heights. Lets go.
