“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”
Couldda, Wouldda, Shouldda…
I’m going to do this, then I plan to do that, and finally I’m going to do that!
Sometimes I wish people could kick themselves in the rear. I really do. That’s today’s Midweek Motivation. Since we’ve reached the time of the year when most New Year’s Resolutions are “out the window” we can have an honest conversation.
New Years Resolutions suck. They are all about the couldda, wouldda, shouldda’s that we “plan” to do. Why on earth do we torment ourselves? The last week of the year we are looking for great ways to improve our life to have “forgotten” about by the third week in January.
Let’s look at today’s inspiration closely. “You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.” — you honestly can’t! You need to start where you are right now, pick a focus and work to achieve it! Then when you achieve that goal, go for the next.
It’s all about you but it’s all about you where you’re at now.
Your motivation for today and the rest of the year is to pick a goal, work toward it, achieve it and move onto the next goal. It would be like trying to lose 20 pounds and being discourage 5 days later when you weighed the same! Your 20 pound goal starts with a 1 pound loss, then 3 pounds, 6 pounds, etc…
That’s why New Years Resolutions bug me. They set lofty goals with no real plan as to how to achieve. AND they have the unwritten expectation of failing only to joke about it. I mean, how many news stories did you see on December 31 of successfully achieving a New Years Resolution? I didn’t see any!
Start Today. Make a new commitment to yourself to build a reputation that you are a goal achiever not a resolution breaker!
