Self-Resolution

Abraham Lincoln once said, “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.”

What is the definition of resolution?

1. The state or quality of being resolute; firm determination: faced the situation with resolution.
2. A firm decision to do something: made a resolution to get more exercise.

b. A course of action determined or decided on: His resolution is to get up early.

Of all the personal traits to have personal resolution is one that is ranked up there where it needs to be if one is ever to accomplish anything in life.

You’ve heard the saying, “If you want something done right you’ll have to do it yourself.” Well, when it comes to wanting to be successful in any endeavor, I’m afraid this saying rings loudly true.

However, self-resolution or determination  is not something that people are born with.  I believe it is a learned behavior, and like any other behavior it can be mastered over time.

Begin to put this behavior into action one step at a time.  Be determined to get into physical shape by eating right and hitting the gym on a regular basis.

Begin a personal development regimen by reading books that build your mind instead of watching television or playing video games.

Begin watching your self-talk and be on guard when destructive thoughts of self- sabotage enter in and replace them with thoughts that are positive and constructive.

With practice all these can be developed over time.

Do it!  Because you can.
