Why intentions fail
Intentions must have a chance to succeed. But two reasons prevent many intentions from actually being implemented. It is worthwhile to question your own habits. What about our ability to tackle new things?
- Reason one: Resolutions are rarely goals. A little more exercise, quitting smoking, more time with the kids, losing weight ... are the most popular resolutions. They all have something in common. They are inaccurate, cannot be measured and have no target date. “I am until December 31.12st. next year at least 10 kilos lighter ”is more accurate and binding. But that alone is not enough.
- Reason two: Resolutions only work if they make sense. For me, the goal must be personal Sense surrender. I have to see a decisive advantage for me. If we pursue goals, because we think that this is expected of us, failure is inevitable. As long as we run after goals that are not our own, we will rarely achieve them. So the crucial question is "Why and why do I want to achieve the goal?" It depends on what we make of it.
The turn of the year is usually the time when you stop for a moment, look back and risk a look ahead. Instead of blindly going into a resolution, it would often make more sense to invest a full hour (or more).
To calmly and thoroughly think about what you really (!) Want. Concretely with a resolution and what should effect its implementation in one's own life. What is important to me? Many think that's banal. Absolutely not.
To take responsibility
Very few people know exactly what they really want in life. Everyday routine determines her existence. Many go to work because they have to. They're cursing again on Sunday afternoon over the coming Monday.
But the responsibility lies with everyone. Yes, we can change something. It is often not easy. But it's worth it. After all, whoever does nothing for a lifetime, which does not fulfill him, sells his own valuable life. Our lifetime is limited. It depends on what we really want.
Practical life art
We all statistically have only 30.000 days to live. Would not it be worthwhile here to reflect on something in which the meaning of one's life really exists? Do not worry, this question is not just for advanced philosophers.
Thinking about this question is a practical way of life. Because the meaning of life is absolutely individual and unique.
The meaning of life is individual
The meaning of life is hardly to watch TV for 3,5 hours a day and with woman swapping, jungle camp and farmer woman is looking for "partying". When we are 85 years old we will not be able to remember all the TV shows.
In the memory rather remain - hopefully - many beautiful lived moments in life. A life in which we did what we really wanted. A life that was fun and fulfilling for us.
The best time
So when is the best time to think about the meaning of life? The best time is always when you really want to change something yourself.
When a goal is sought. If this goal makes sense for you personally. It does not have to be New Year's Eve for that.
