January 17th is known as “Ditch the Resolution Day”. Most people give up on their New Year’s resolutions less than 3 weeks into the year!
If you’re about to ditch your resolution, ask yourself this, “Did I just change my actions or did I change my thoughts about what I’m trying to do?”
If you were trying to cut back on your alcohol consumption, did you just sign up for a “Dry January” & tell yourself you won’t drink for a month?
You’ve probably been fighting the desire to have a drink.
Thinking, I need a drink.
I deserve a drink.
I want a drink.
I don’t really need to do this.
Just one won’t hurt.
Counting down until you’ll be able to drink again.
If you don’t address those thoughts, you won’t be able to stick with it long-term.
If you want to change your habits, your relationships, your life, you have to start with your mind.
You need to change your THOUGHTS.
As long as you have negative thoughts about what you’re doing, you won’t get long-term positive results. Your mind is ALWAYS listening to your inner voice. You need to make sure that voice is supporting you!
You need to be thinking positive thoughts about what you’re doing.
Believable positive thoughts.
Try: I deserve to feel good in the morning.
I can handle stress.
I can relax without a drink.
I am doing something good for my body.
I am doing something good for myself.
Don’t give up.
You can achieve your goals—even if you’ve tried before and given up.
You just need to change your mind first 😉
