Anyone give up on their resolutions already? Or maybe you haven’t quite managed to start yet? I know people in both camps! There are also some people that are committed to making their resolutions stick. As the Cowardly Lion asks in Wizard of Oz, “What have they got that I ain’t got?…Courage.” Or more accurately, belief.
Belief will get you started, but it won’t always be enough to keep you going.
That’s where support comes in. We all need somebody to lean on. *spontaneous song break!*
Becoming the best version of yourself doesn’t happen at the stroke of midnight when the calendar changes from 2020 to 2021. It happens slowly over time as you begin to embody your new intention and identity.
My dream of becoming a bestselling author didn’t happen overnight. It was a day-by-day activity that I had to keep showing up for, even when it was hard. Some days all I could muster was a single new sentence. Some days the words flowed through me like a torrential downpour. No matter the day, I had to keep the promise I’d made to myself and show up.
The same is true for those big dreams you’re trying to accomplish this year. Your resolutions need you to keep showing up. Daily.
But showing up isn’t usually easy or fun.
This is why you need support! Share your dream with other people so they can encourage you. There will be days when you want to give up, but having the support of someone else can give you the lift you need to keep at it.
In order to make my bestselling author dream a reality, I had some good people cheering me on that wouldn’t let me give up. They helped me find the resolve to keep making progress when I would otherwise not.
Support can be the difference between becoming the new you and reverting back to old habits and patterns from last year (and let’s be honest, no one wants to go back to 2020!!).
#PositiveAction Tell your resolution to one other person and ask them to support you on your journey.
You’re ready to create your best life, your dream job, and the best version of you. Except there’s that voice in your head, telling you that you can’t. That you won’t be successful. Just like all the other times you’ve tried. But that ends today, because with change coaching, you have the support and accountability you were missing all the other times you’ve tried.
This time will be different, because you’ll have the secret weapon: change coaching.
