Revolutions, Not Resolutions

This year, instead of resolutions, make revolutions. What's the difference? Instead of talking about things you would like to change, just dig in and do them. Don't promise to do something because someone else wants you to. In the end, the only changes you will stick with are the ones you choose to do because you really want to make these changes.

It is far better to just have one or two things on your list that you really will do, three at most, rather than make a list of 5 or 10 things and then feel disappointed because you did not get them all done.

If you focus your efforts and you are successful in making even one change, you will feel proud of yourself for what you have accomplished, and then it will not be empty talk. When you actually make a change, you will have created a revolution in your life, whether your focus is to work out at least 3 times a week, build your business so that your income doubles, or whether your goal is to write something every day, only choose to do something that is so heartfelt and such a strong desire that you really will follow through.

If you want your life to change, you need to create revolutions, not make resolutions. Notice the difference and feel the joy that comes from taking action.
