A resolution isn’t a goal, it isn’t temporary, and it isn’t a solution to make for any past laziness or excuses. A resolution is a resolve to change. It is a commitment of mental fortitude and awareness.
This year, in 2012 I resolve to change my vocabulary. From now I will will always say “I can” and will refrain from use of any negative use of the word in any circumstance. I have forever eliminated the “not” or any uncertainty used along with “can,” in both written word and spoken word, for as I train my mind to transform its thinking I must be vigilant and conscious to my resolve.
Resolutions give us a tangible way to mark and water our own personal self-development of character. Make this year the year that your resolution isn’t just a goal, but rather, a change of lifestyle, thought and commitment that lasts more than just a few months and instead lasts a lifetime.
