You have the power to take action and change.
As the year draws to a close, instead of making a resolution, take an action to change your life.
A resolution is merely a thought, and maybe an emotion. I resolve to eat healthier. I resolve to go to the gym regularly. I resolve to put more money into savings. Resolution is thought and the feeling it will bring about. Resolution is a step in the right direction, but it lacks motion, it is lacking in necessary action to make it actually happen.
Action is what we need to really change. We can think about and feel change all we want, but the ACTION is often neglected. This is why resolutions are often forgotten or otherwise don’t work as intended.
I resolve to eat healthier. Instead of making a drastic change, take a smaller action. Stop eating cookies or don’t drink soda or something small to start with. You can always build on it.
I resolve to go to the gym regularly. Rather than intend a daily trek, start small. Hit the gym twice a week, at least 20 minutes a session. You can build from there, expand upon the action and make it more.
I resolve to put more money into savings. Start with fifty cents a week. It may not seem like much, but it’s a start. You can increase it as time goes on, but so long as you have a minimum and a date to deposit to savings you have action.
We think grand, we want huge results, but even the grandest notions start small. Little attainable actions are far more powerful than grand soon-neglected resolutions. You have the power to completely control this and effect change as you best want it for yourself.
Small, easy to maintain actions are a huge step towards building greater positivity. When the action is easy to do we feel success more readily. When we feel success we feel more positive. Positivity builds, and the more positive we feel the more we spread to those around us.
I think if we focus on attainable New Years’ Actions rather than grandiose resolutions, we can build far more positivity in our lives, and get more of what we want from the world.
Finding positivity is not hard, it just requires action. Knowing that you have the power to take an action for the new year rather than make a resolution, you can change anything. When we act on change, rather than just think and feel change, we make things happen, we build success and consequently empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
This is the one hundredth entry of my Positivity series. It is my hope these weekly messages might help spread positive energies for everyone. Feel free to share, re-blog and spread the positivity.
