Your New Year’s Resolutions will fail.
Count on it.
Either today or tomorrow or in a few days, you’re toast.
At least if you are like vast majority of people who make resolutions.
Change isn’t easy.
Old habits die hard.
For some reason we’re wired to believe that Day One of the New Year is the ideal time to make a change.
And when we revert to our old ways we stay there for a long time.
But remember this…
The calendar doesn’t determine the new moment, the new day.
This is your life, this is your dance, this is your movie.
And every moment is the new moment.
Every moment is your opportunity to become the best version of you.
Your quest is heroic.
The epic battle is you versus you.
Will your higher self or your lower self prevail?
A lifetime of trends can be vanquished with your will, your heart, your faith and your refusal to play small.
So when your New Year’s Resolutions fail…
Remember the Japanese proverb: “Fall down seven times, stand up eight.”
Dust yourself off.
And begin again.
This is the sacred moment.
