You need a compelling “why”.
Do you want to do something big this year? Is it going to be a lot of work? Then you should be prepared to remind yourself every day why it’s worth it. Every day.
Would you care to share one of your big goals for the year and your “why?” Frame it in positive terms too (not just negative).
For example, one of my big goals for the year is to help my family (and myself) eat more healthy food. My “why?”- The way I feed my children will impact the choices they make and partly determine their health. It’s kind of big deal. I need to work on making this goal more specific, but it’s a start.
I need a reminder of the high stakes of my goal. Not to make me feel like a failure, but to motivate me to accomplish it.
Let’s do this! 2014 is going to be a great year!
