Happy New Year!

"Re" is a prefix that, in Latin, means "again" or "again and again."

If what you have been consistently doing consistentlyto achieve a goal hasn't been working, then stop (ğœğ¨ğ§ğ¬ğ¢ğ¬ğ­ğžğ§ğœğ² ğ›ğžğ¢ğ§ğ  𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐤𝐞𝐲 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞).

Conversely, if it has worked but stopped working, you have to honestly ask yourself...

"Was I consistent in my execution?"

If the answer is "yes", then here is the good news, you just have to pivot and adapt. No different that graduating from basic arithmetic to algebra, you have graduated from one step to another.  

If you have 𝗡𝗢𝗧 been consistent in your execution, then stop and go back. I think we can both agree that saying something doesn't work when the effort and execution has not been consistent, is not the right approach.

So, with the start of 2024. Here is the challenge.

𝐎𝐧 𝐚 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞, 𝐰𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐢𝐧𝐠

"𝐈 𝐀𝐌 (fill in the blank)."  Fill in the blank with what you want to be or achieve.  Example.  If you want to exercise at least 3 days per week, write...

"I AM exercising 3 days per week!"

ğ“ğ¡ğžğ§ 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐧 𝟑 ğšğ«ğžğšğ¬ 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐬𝐞𝐞 𝐝𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲. ğ„ğ±ğšğ¦ğ©ğ¥ğž: 𝐛𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐦 𝐦𝐢𝐫𝐫𝐨𝐫, ğŸğ«ğ¢ğğ ğž, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤 ğœğ¨ğ¦ğ©ğ®ğ­ğžğ« ğ¬ğœğ«ğžğžğ§.

The difference between "I AM_________________" and "I will try ________" is that the latter allows too much room for justifying moments of failure. "𝐈 𝐀𝐌" 𝐢𝐬 ğ¬ğ©ğžğšğ¤ğ¢ğ§ğ  𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 ğ›ğžğ¢ğ§ğ .

Examples:
I AM HEALTHY.
I AM STRONG.
I AM DISCIPLINED.
I AM CONFIDENT.

Versus

I will try to be healthy.
I will try to be strong.
I will try to be disciplined.
I will try to be confident.

See and hear the difference?

Do you know what you want to write down?
