Welcome to the new year! A time when people deep dive into trying to adopt new workouts, new diets, new personas. Whatever that new thing is, it is incorrectly thought of as a new you.
What do I mean?
We all know someone who walks around at the end of the year saying something along the framework of, “New Year, New Me.”
Well… this is wrong!
You can’t create a new you. It’s quite silly to think you can.
You should be saying, “New Year, Better Me!”
Your goal should be to get a little better each day. Not to try and be a different you. You haven’t even mastered the concept of being you.
You walk around all day long arguing with yourself about trying to be true to who you are. On the outside you try to give the illusion of one thing while wrestling with your identity on the inside.
This isn’t healthy!
Now is the time to scrap that thinking and work on becoming the real you. A better you.
It’s okay to choose a new diet. But, for what reason? Are you doing it to get noticed? Or, are you doing it to feel better and to take better care of yourself?
It’s okay to use the new year as an opportunity to launch into a better version of yourself. But, don’t use it as an excuse to wait.
Waiting was the old you. The better you starts now!
So, the next time you hear someone say, “New Year, New Me”, flip their script and say they’re wrong. Why? Because, New Year, Better YOU!
