What is Resolution vs. Being Resolute?
The simplest difference between the two is that one is a noun and one is a verb. But taking a deeper look, is it better to have resolutions or to be resolute? It’s a pretty easy answer, isn’t it? To be resolute means, you’re taking action. The problem with resolutions is they’re just a thing, just a noun, and are nothing without taking action.
The Inherent Problems With Resolutions
The problem with resolutions is that you don’t see results right away. I’ve been a wellness center owner for over 16 years, and we work predominantly with morbidly obese people. You can imagine how difficult it is for them to make a change because they probably reached that state of morbid obesity after an extended period. That’s not something that happens in months or even a year. They became stagnant or set in a certain way, and it becomes more and more difficult change the longer it goes on. It’s wonderful to work with them, I can’t tell you how rewarding it is because they have so much gratitude for the help they’re getting. But it’s still tough for them.
When Can Resolutions Be a Good Thing?
Resolutions are only good, in my opinion, in two ways. You have to dig deep and decide what a resolution is going to be and understand your “why,” why you want to make that change. You have to pour through a great big list of reasons why and how you’re going to feel once you get to the other side of accomplishing that resolution. However, we still have to be resolute; we still have to take action. We have to will it into existence almost. If you have a difficult change to make, the second way a resolution can be a good thing is if you find someone to come along side you.
So be resolute! Don’t just set a resolution or look at just one year. Look at your life over the next ten year period. Make long term goals. Work with people who will support you and remember that the most important thing of all is to be resolute, and to take action on your resolutions!
