Try or Commit

Thoughts to consider when making a New Years Resolution

Trying or Commitment

We can try to stop smoking, or we can commit to stop smoking.

We can try to live by our values, or we can commit to living by our values.

We can try to become debt free, or we can commit to becoming debt-free.

We can try to exercise more, or we can commit to exercising more.

We can try to get a new job, or we can commit to getting a new job.

We can try to improve our relationships, or we can commit to improving our relationships.

We can try to stop procrastinating, or we can commit to stop procrastinating.

We can try to manage our stress better, or we can commit to managing our stress better.

We can try to eat healthier, or we can commit to eating healthier.

We can try to take a trip, or we can commit to taking a trip.

We can try to drink less alcohol, or we can commit to drinking less alcohol.

We can try or we can commit.

If you are one of the 45% planning to make a New Years Resolution, then commit yourself to success rather than self-doubt.

When you say you will try, you’re already starting the process with a small percentage of self-doubt.  

Go into action believing in 100% success.

Commit to your goals.

Wishing you a successful 2014!

    I like it. Master Yoda put it this way:
    “Do or so not. There is no try.”

      Ever since you wrote this quote, I’ve been seeing it everywhere – LOL. I guess it pairs quite well with resolutions. Thanks for stopping by Soren. Be safe in 2014.

    Soren, I was thinking of Yoda too ;-) I think it’s also helpful to set specific goals with dates. I’ve been saying I’m going to try to finish my ebook for too long. This time I picked a date… I’ll try to make that work ;-)

      Karin, this is twice now you’ve teased me with this book. Can you shed a little more light on it? Would love to know what it’s about :-)

    powerful words, coach. If you try, you may fail. If you do not try, you will fail, guarantee :)

      Thank you, Lydia
      Everyone boils down to those little voices inside us. Are we going to allow them to sabotage us or coach us :-)
