The first day of the year is a bit like the first day of school. Everyone is motivated, ready to do everything the teacher asks. Resolutions, spiritual or otherwise, start to line up like the gifts we had under the tree just a few days earlier. For example, working out three times a week, eating a more balanced diet, stopping an addiction, changing an attitude, etc.
But, because there is indeed a but, I’d like to point out that making a resolution is good, but persevering in it is better! 😊 That’s why habits, more than resolutions, are hugely powerful. They create a model, like a daily grid, that largely determines how we’re going to live our lives.
Thus, developing good habits gives you the means to keep good resolutions! For example, I’ve personally put into place good habits for continuing long-term with “A Miracle Every Day” because it’s an important daily investment. And it’s been 776 days now that I’ve sent this daily message of encouragement with, of course, the precious help of my team (that I thank from the bottom of my heart!)
And what motivates me is seeing the good fruit produced in the lives of readers. When I read your testimonies, it gives me a boost to keep going! 💪 So, I write, and I research videos and books that could interest you. But above all, I keep the vision of changed and transformed lives before my eyes. Just like Habakkuk 2:2 says: “Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.””
Write down your resolutions and refer to them regularly. Because we’re together day after day, I deeply desire for you to be able to succeed in your life as a Christian!
