We are all at the metaphorical start line to the 2020 marathon; How you choose to run this race is entirely up to you. Many of you will make a New Year’s resolution others may have a goal or two, there are the dreamers and schemers who will wish or con they way to the finish line. How many will “score a personal victory this year?”
That depends everyone starts the year wanting to lose weight, get healthier, quit smoking, find a relationship, go back to school–You get the picture. The problem is they only half want it, because they don’t want to give up high caloric goodies, get up early to workout, go through nicotine withdrawal, get their heart broken, or have to study. We all want things but we rarely are willing to give up the comforts of our ruts.
People who are willing to change have a higher purpose for that change. They want to lose weight to feel better, be around for their children to grow up, be able to do more and live more fully. People are willing to change their current habits to be better because they have come to a realization they can have more and be more if they are willing to let go of past beliefs and stories. They must be willing to put themselves first, in order to give fully you need to be full.
So here is my question how are you going to run 2020? If you’re not willing to run it; It will run you…
As an aside my word for the year is Patience, I will deal with life moment by moment by putting one foot in front of the other. This philosophy has done me well in running, I don’t see how it won’t work in 2020.
