When did you resolve it?

Specifically, was it before, during, or after a New Year’s party? If so, you might need to re-examine your goal.

What is the overall goal?

If you realized that you did make your resolution in a bad mindset, or even if you didn’t, the next step is to figure out what your overall goal is. Because it’s that, not your methods, that are going to help you lead to success.

“There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same.”

There are many paths to success, just as there are many paths to the top. If you get fit through working in a warehouse instead of paying for a gym, it doesn’t matter. So what are you trying to accomplish?

Are you thinking too big?

I get it. Big goals seem grand, impress people, and are a massive catalyst for change.
