I can’t buy into this “New Year, New You” hype.
I just can’t. I’ve been inundated with a lot of quick fix programs, 21 day challenges, and quick fix products and promises since we turned the calendar page. It’s not that I don’t like a good challenge, it’s just not the way to lasting change.
That’s one reason why I’m waiting to February to launch the next six month Recalibration group (with some fun freebies this month to gear up).
I want to take the time and space to ease into the year. And I want the people I work to have the same opportunity.
WHY is it six months?
In my experience three months is usually too short to see REAL LASTING results.Sure you can get a quick fix, but will it last?
Six months allows you to TRULY step into a new season. It goes deeper than just setting the goal and identifying the action steps to achieve it.
I’ve been there, done that, and I know that lasting change comes from creating the energetic imprint, solidifying a new mindset and story, and a commitment to change, coupled with support.
The intention and energy BEHIND the goal or habit change is the foundation.
I began facilitating change workshops and teaching goal setting in 1996. I loved this work because I had been setting goals for myself for over a decade before that.
As a corporate trainer specializing in the design and delivery of executive development programs, I routinely watched teams and executives go through a program and emerge with great hope and enthusiasm.
Whether it was a half day workshop or a three-day executive retreat, I observed a similar pattern of old habits creeping back along with overwhelm, lack of focus and hopping back on the hamster wheel, wishing things were different.
Let’s stop that, shall we?
No matter how you move forward into this year…whether you set goals, or make resolutions, whether you enlist support of a group, a coach (or both), remember that change can take time.
What will New Year’s Eve of 2024 feel like if nothing has changed?
Commit to your growth. Commit to your freedom.
I want this for you. The question is, do you want it for yourself?
