Here’s how to turn a “Have to” into a “Want to”

Be honest.

Do you find yourself thinking, “I have to do this! while deep inside you are dragging, resisting, or avoiding every possible step to actually do the task at hand?  

Do you ever think, “they are making me do this?”  “They”  could be your teacher assigning you homework, your boss giving you an undesirable project, your parents requiring some family obligation, or your church group, friends, or the I.R.S. requiring some action on your part.

Remember those New Year’s resolutions you set back in January 2016?  

Remember how important they were to you and how determined you were to achieve them?

It is time to take an honest look at where you are now in completing those goals.  

According to John Norcross and Dominic Vangarelli close to 60% of people will drop their resolutions by 6 months reverting back to old behaviors and habits.  Peter Herman concluded that many people don’t achieve their goals because of “false hope syndrome.” This means that there is a fundamental difference between the goal and your personal belief that you are capable of reaching it.
