In the effective living side of my stress management programs, I always recommend people skip the New Year’s Resolutions so many believe in. Instead, I recommend listing the qualities we want to embody in the New Year: vitality, integrity, faith, consistency…fill in your own.
I bring this up now, 50 days into the New Year, because it’s about the right time to ask ourselves: how are my New Year’s Resolutions going? Am I keeping my resolutions and making progress with my goals?
The German poet/playwright Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, usually referred to simply as “Goethe”, said:
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
Now how do you think you’re doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?
A personal credo can include all the qualities you want to embody for the year.
“For the New Year, I would wish to have
Strength enough to battle with difficulties and overcome them,
Love enough to move me to be useful and helpful to others,
Faith enough to make real the things of God, and
Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.”
So what would your personal credo be? How would your credo compare with his? The more we are in step with our values and desired qualities, the more we find we’re Healthy, Happy, and Loving Lifesm? It’s up to you!
