Build Resolve!

Resolve is one of the best characteristics you can teach yourself in order to reach goals, persist through obstacles or simply complete projects.

But what’s Resolve really?

R - Responsibility for your situation as it is present ( you are where you are because of the choices you made leading up to this point)

E - Energy caused by Frustration ( be frustrated and upset with the status quo )

S - Satisfaction from small Accomplishments ( acknowledge your success to build momentum )

O - Open-mindedness to new Education ( is there a popular self-improvement book that could teach you a skill you need? )

L - Love and accept yourself despite any mistakes you’ve made. You can never love anyone more than you are able to love yourself

V - Validate your efforts by continuously reinforcing to yourself “Everyday I am getting better and better, everyday I am stronger, everyday I am making the best of it”

E - Evolve out of the old ideas you had about who you are and become someone you would admire, someone who is everything you never thought you could attain.

Set yourself up for success and commit to building the resolve that creates true satisfaction, pride and a feeling of mastery!

Happy Monday!
