My New Year's Resolution--To Gain

Traditional New Year's Resolutions have a common theme--to break a bad habit, such as smoking or drinking. Although the intent is rooted in a desire for self-improvement, this type of resolution also carries a bit of negativity.....which can be counterproductive. The problem lies in the focus. The typical New Year's Resolution is often framed in the light of having to give up something rather than on gaining a healthier attribute.

This point is emphasized well in the new ad campaign for Kellogg's Special K products, "What Will You Gain When You Lose?". Although I'm not promoting their products for weight loss, I do very much believe these ads stress the right attitude about making a lifestyle change--a focus on what is to be gained from the new habit. 

As you get ready to step into a healthier New Year, I propose that you put a positive spin on your list of Resolutions. Write down what you will gain from achieving your goals for the New Year. Keep in mind perspective is's what you gain, not what you lose.
