January is such a lovely, idealistic month.
We enter it with grandiose ideas and bold resolutions designed to make our lives better.
We buy gym memberships and matching outfits.
We purchase personal development books and enrol in expensive courses.
We drink less, go to church more, swear less and eat more leafy greens.
And then the weeks tick over and the momentum falters.
We’re not quite as motivated as we were and the results are taking longer to arrive than we anticipated.
Then January ends and February begins.
And so we stop.
The goals become a distant memory.
The dreams remain dreams.
And the year ends up being just another ordinary, unfulfilled year.
But not this year.
This is the year of no excuses.
This is the year of pushing through the hard times.
This is the year of keeping our goals in sight so that we can stay focused.
This is the year when resolutions become habits and aspirations become a part of our daily routine.
This is the year that builds a strong foundation for future success.
And if you have already faltered, don’t be too hard on yourself, just start again.
Now the grind begins.
Now the winners are sorted out from the also-rans.
Will you be one of them?
