So here we are…the start of a new year, a new decade, time to create Positive Resolution Reward
We have set our goals and those of us who are going to be successful have:
Becoming UnBusy, it’s a Movement
#1. Changed our consciousness. We have looked inside, we have identified what needs changing, we have done “the work”! Check.
#2. We have an accountability structure to help us sustain change. We have recognized we cannot reach our goal by our “lonesome” and have surrounded ourselves with our own cheerleading tribe! Check.
#3. We have defined barriers real and imagined. We know we are worthy of success, we recognize we are not selfish for wanting different than before, we understand that change does not bring greater burdens-things will just be different, and that is OK! Check
We Are Ready!
…but what happens when the New Year’s cheerleaders go home, take a nap, or go on vacation? What can we reward ourselves with after the positive FB meme’s supporting our new year’s resolutions are gone? What can we do when the “collective we” gives up, and the individual “me” needs a boost? We have defined reasonable goals. We have faith in our abilities. We’re a month into the new year and the ‘sparkle’ of our resolution may be a little dull.
We need a little motivation, a reward, a treat, an incentive that is important specifically to “us” the proverbial “carrot” but we don’t want it to affect our waistlines.
