It’s a new year, which is the traditional time to start deciding how you’re going to change up your life. As much as I’m a “New Years Resolutions are bullshit” kind of person, I am a fan of self-motivation and sometimes giving an arbitrary date emotional significance is as good a way as any to kick off a self-improvement plan.
Most of the time.
See, there’s one type of person who’s never going to get better, no matter how many plans they make or how many resolutions they pledge. They’re the ones who have what I call “the objection mindset”. You may know one of them. You may be one of them. If you’re the sort of person who is always thinking “This would never work for me because reasons,” or you’re always telling people why you’re the exception to this advice, then odds are good that you have an objection mindset. And that means you’re never going to improve. Unless, of course, you work to overcome it.
Already sounding impossible? Welcome to the self-fulfilling prophecy. Let’s talk about how you can change your mind and make some real, substantive improvements in your life.
