New Years Resolutions

So how are those New Year resolutions working for you?

On being human and our immunity to change…

So how are you doing with those New Year’s resolutions and other goals you set for yourself last month… making progress? Some of you may be doing really well and if you are – congratulations! But there may be others of you that no matter how simple or complicated, personal or professional, your resolutions and goals are – you just can’t seem to stay on track.

When that’s the case, it’s easy to blame ourselves for lack of will power, not ‘wanting’ the change/goal/new thing enough, or any number of reasons for our failure… but just for the next few moments, try to stop the blame game with yourself and instead, ask a simple question.

Why? Why I am not succeeding with this resolution/goal?

Could be a couple of things… it’s not a good goal – like maybe it’s not really YOUR goal – maybe it’s really someone else’s that you have taken on as your own? Or maybe it’s too big… too small… or not connected to YOUR vision? Or maybe it’s a good goal, but staying true to accomplishing it means fighting one of the most fundamental neurological systems in the brain… a HABIT. Most often, a Habit of Thought! Research has determined that no matter how sincerely we want to break a habit, we have an inherent immunity to change. In other words – our underlying conditioning, thoughts and attitudes prevent us from changing.

Genuine leadership is defined by heart, integrity, honesty, courage, compassion and those many intangible qualities of being and creating the most authentic person and leader that resides within each one of us. It takes time, awareness, knowledge and purpose to build our inner leadership and leadership in others. And, it takes grit. It requires a willingness to be vulnerable and show our true selves to the world; strength to speak our mind clearly and with confidence; empathy and compassion for ourselves and others while staying strong and determined; and the focus, faith and belief to do what we know is right even when it is the most difficult thing to do. Its a fascinating journey and one I have traveled for decades. The further I go, the more I realize how much I still need to learn and experience. It seems like just when I reach a new level of self-awareness, something comes into my life that reminds me I still have much to learn and many more levels to ascend. Exciting? Yes.
