Do you treat the New Year like a new slate and make a list of things you want to achieve, places you want to visit and people you want to connect with? And if so, is this a recurring list? Items that you’ve planned to do year after year? Items like lose weight, write a book, learn to play the guitar, visit Mexico, learn Spanish, return to school …
Could it be that you are afraid of achieving them and then having to deal with success?
Or perhaps you are afraid to try and then you fail? And yet, the refusal to try is silly because 1) you could actually succeed and 2) if you fail, you’ve still learned something along the way, met new people, and grown in one way or another.
Some people make outrageous lists that are too daunting to approach. Others make lists of one or two items that are completed immediately with a whole year ahead and no challenges.
What’s your approach? Do you even bother with a resolution?
If you’ve made resolutions, were you successful in achieving them?
