How many times have you made a New Year’s resolution, or a goal, and you’re still waiting for it to happen? You’re not alone, and I’m here to help you make sure that’s not a problem this year.

We all get in those modes. “I’m going to lose weight,” or, “I’m going to finally get my side business going,” or even, “This is the year I organize my garage.”

Then you build up your interest. You research everything you can. You make plans, maybe you even buy into things that should make it happen. Workout clothes, a website domain, or even shelves.

Then they just sit there.

The problem isn’t your interest, it’s not your passion – it’s your commitment.

You need to really analyze your goals. Is it something you are going to want to do even if you are tired? Even when you are sick?

Because let’s face it, if you’re going to make excuses to get out of it.

Results don’t come from whims of inspiration, they come from staying true to your goals through thick and thin.

Commitment is the difference between success and mediocrity.

Download this episode today to learn how you can remain dedicated, committed, and achieve your goals.

3 Things to Think About When Making a Resolution:

  1. Commitment takes more than interest.
  2. Commitment is not based on how you feel.
  3. Commitment means completion.

The Cliff Notes:

  • This is a difficult time of year, and you are not alone.
  • Make sure you are not physically alone.
  • 92% of us don’t stick with resolutions.
  • Shift your mindset from resolutions to getting results.
  • To go to the next level, it can’t be ok to make the same resolutions year after year.
  • Interest is what we do when we just talk about things.
  • Being interested fools you into making you look busy.
  • You have to go the extra mile and show up when you don’t feel like it.
  • We are all exhausted and don’t feel well on certain days,
  • You don’t get to not show up unless you are ok with just being mediocre.
  • You have to be great, even when you don’t feel like it.
  • There’s always someone watching you that has the power to bless you.
  • Be committed to the outcome.
  • If it were easy, everyone would do it.
  • Too many of us give up too quickly.

    Hey Patrice just finishing up this Podcast right now. Girl you almost brought me to tears. AND you got me good because I was on my way to the library to work on my book, but decided to listen to this Podcast first. Now I’m headed to the library and when I get back home I’m listening to 10 Lessons From 10 Years of Marriage! Meeting you at the Dress for Success workshop in Century City 2017 has been a life-changing experience for me. I’m so happy to be able to follow your accomplishments and successes in 2018! God bless you!

    Thank you so much for this. It’s exactly the eye opener I needed. When you asked are you committed to accomplishing your goals or just interested? ? It’s like a light bulb went off. A person can be so busy getting information that they never actually start working towards the goal! Wow.

      So glad you had your light bulb moment, Taccarra! So key!

    Hi Patrice,
    My biggest take away from this episode was that it shouldn’t take 365 days to accomplish your goal. For some reason I always make a few goals and stretch them out for the year rather than just getting them done and moving on. I definitely need to set a time limit and get things done. It’s the procrastinator in me rearing its ugly head. Thanks for helping me get back on track. Zee
