It’s not too late.
OK, so it's February. You've settled into 2017 and, in many ways, it still feels like 2016. Of all those things you said you'd do, you've done...one? Half of one? You haven't exercised, haven't found time to read, haven't eaten any healthier, haven't started that new hobby.
Sometimes, we start out with the best intentions on things we know will improve our lives, only to stumble right out of the gate and never realize even the slightest accomplishment. It doesn't mean you've failed. It doesn't mean they weren't worth going for in the first place. What it does mean you may not have decided what you really want.
I had a friend once who said, "you really do get what you really do want. You may say you want six-pack abs. But if you don't stop eating chocolate donuts and watching 6 hours of television a day, what you're really saying is 'I want to eat chocolate donuts and watch television more than I want six-pack abs.'"
It's a valid point. You really do get what you really do want.
So with February now upon us, here's some good news about all those plans you made for the new year.
It's not too late.
It's not. It's not too late to rethink all those grand plans you made on January 1, reassess which of them are really important to you and go with gusto for those that still seem important enough for you to pursue. Go for gusto for the things you really want. Pick one. Or two. Create some baby steps, launch a plan and get started.
You won't be sorry. You'll savor some small victories.
And maybe—just maybe—you'll get what you really do want!
