New Year, New You

Don't stop transforming

For many, the new year means a new beginning… Until February. Studies show 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by the second week of February.

This is discouraging news. Especially for those of us who set New Year’s resolutions.

You may have set a resolution to:

  • Lose 40 pounds by July
  • Learn a new craft or skill
  • Treat your family members with more respect
  • Start a new business

But by the second week of February, you’re feeling discouraged. The progress you thought you would have made by this point hasn’t been realized. You feel like a failure.

Why We Fail At New Year’s Resolutions

We get discouraged when we don’t see progress. We believe we should see extraordinary progress. Reality is you will see incremental progress.

The Habits Of A Disciplined Leader

1. They practice self-care

The first habit of a disciplined leader is the habit of self-care. This isn’t a call to be selfish. This is a call to make sure you and your body are in optimal condition.

Disciplined leaders know they have to do a couple of things to make sure they’re the best that they can be. To practice the habit of self-care, a leader must:

Regularly exercise
Renew his mind
Eat healthily

Basically, self-care means you take care of your body and mind. You don’t do drugs, drink alcohol in excess, or over-indulge. You also make sure you’re inputting good things into your body and mind.
