Let’s Keep This New Year’s Resolution Thing Going – Danny Dreyer’s Thoughts on Creating Real Change
Most of you know I am a ChiRunning® Instructor. I've been one since 2005. I love the ChiRunning® form, concept and teaching it to others. Danny Dreyer, the founder of ChiRunning® has a blog that is always worth checking out. Hopefully you read my post on January 1, 2014 about writing down your goals and planning your races. If not check below this post. I want to add to those ideas by posting other helpful ideas in achieving your goals. Danny wrote a great article on: Creating Real Change: From Resolutions to Reality in 5 Steps
Creating Real Change: From Resolutions to Reality in 5 Steps by Danny Dreyer Jan. 2, 2014
Why is it that every year we all come up with great resolutions, only to see them slowly evaporate in the subsequent weeks and months? I’m guessing that over 90% of those who’ve made New Year’s resolutions don’t even remember what they were by the time December rolls around. And, I’m as guilty of this as anyone.
Is there anything we can do to “guarantee” that our resolutions stay alive and eventually come true? The short answer is yes. But, the way to get those changes to happen is not a short answer. I’ve taken the answer from the ChiWalking book which involves five steps to achieve a goal - from walking your first 5K to dropping 15 pounds, to getting out of debt. If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get down to a deeper, more mindful approach to change, we can almost guarantee you’ll be high-fiving yourself come next December.
The Five Steps I’m talking about offer a great way to ensure the success you’re looking for, whether your goals are physical, emotional or spiritual.
