Research tells us that by this point in the year over 80% of people have given up on their New Year’s resolution. The resolutions, the goals people have set have been given up.
Maybe you’re in the same boat. You resolved to lose 30 pounds by June. You weighed yourself and you’re up 3 pounds. So you give up. Or maybe you decided to learn how to play guitar. It’s now February 21 and you haven’t touched the guitar. You’ve given up. Or maybe you wanted to read 36 books in 2018. You’ve only read one and you feel it’s too late to catch up. So you’ve stopped reading.
For each of these failures, you’ve begun to play a soundtrack in your mind. A soundtrack of negativity.
