“Men should pledge themselves to nothing; for reflection makes a liar of their resolution.”
It may be clear by now that resolutions are similar to diets because they do not work.
This is most often true when the resolution bombast is the diet! Resolutions are notoriously short-term.
Diets are based on weight loss versus lifestyle changes – which promotes a series of cyclical events instead of the process necessary for lasting change.
The same principle is applicable to the countless proclamations by people to commence a fitness program each January.
If you inadvertently stuck your foot in your mouth – or your head up your ass – know that humans have the capacity to change their behavior. Whether or not one does it simply highlights one’s belief system.
