Taking little steps.
Every new year, billions of people make resolutions and jump into the year with excitement. They use up all their energy in the first few weeks trying to manifest results that should take some months and in some cases, even years to accomplish. When the adrenaline from the new year church service pumps through their veins, they feel invincible, powerful, unstoppable and rush immediately into action believing as they did the previous year and the one before: ‘this is my year!’ But as the weeks pass by, the adrenaline slowly loses its rousing effect on their emotions, reality hits them in the most unpleasant way and it seems as if it is taking ‘forever’ to achieve their goals; that is when many throw up their hands in frustration and revert to their ‘pre-new year’ lifestyle.
It is not easy to break out of the old into the new. Change is tough. Change takes time. Change is a process and should never be rushed. If you rush it, you could easily get overwhelmed and decide to remain in your comfort zone where it is safe and warm.
