Weight loss and exercise are the top two, Giving up smoking can be a break through Managing money better is in great style Reducing debt can put a big smile Energized and excited, but with nary a plan Soon fizzles out for many a common man Successful people get a head start Beginning the process with a vision chart Come January 1st, we hit the gym In an attempt to look like the kardashian twin But the next day when the muscles get sore Resolutions go out the proverbial door. To lose weight we go on a diet Is it motivating? We go very quiet The thought of celery makes us cringe As if it was a hypodermic syringe. Why do resolutions fail, you may ask Why is getting results such a big task? I do have willpower, you may say So why don’t I get results, to my great dismay? A lot of us set unrealistic goals And our strategies have a lot of holes Instant gratification is the name of the game The more we want to change, the more we stay the same. It may be the new year, but it’s the same you Unless you change your habits, its as hard as kung fu We usually start with a false expectation Without creating a rock solid foundation Don’t be cynical, small and critical This is not being savvy and analytical Inspiring it is not, nor is it smart Change your habits, before you fall apart An abstract goal is a sure fail It does not motivate, it will not prevail For long lasting results, a habit create With the power to restore the natural state.
Set small, specific and achievable goals Create the foundation, gives you control Forget the excuses and be committed Then, in your mind you will stand acquitted.
Believe in your ability, create a smart plan You will do it, if you think you can. Journey of a 1000 miles starts with a step But it may fail without a proper prep. Habit: stop smoking one cigarette a day Habit: add a small salad before your filet Habit: walk for 15 minutes daily, a child’s play Habit: meditate for 5 minutes, this is the way. Resolve to be kind, lend a hand Resolve to smile, instead of command Resolve to laugh and to understand Resolve to breathe, help your adrenal gland. Live abundantly, avoid deprivation Align with your values, avoid frustration Set intentions, make them meaningful Make life joyous and peaceful. Final thought: The past is gone, never to return Future no one can see, important to discern Make goals, but live in the present This, my friend, to you is my present.
