Whether you are inclined to make New Year’s resolutions or not, surely there are areas of your life that you desire to be different. But how do you bring about change?
Start with your character.
At the foundation of every positive change in our lives is an improvement in character.
That may seem surprising, but think about it. When you consider the top New Year’s resolutions – like spending more time with friends and family, exercising and losing weight, or getting out of debt – they all call for better character.
You want to spend more time with your family and friends? Then you’re going to have to sacrifice some of your favorite time wasters. You’d like to get more fit? Then you’ll need to acquire better discipline. You want to overcome some debt? Then growing in contentment may be very important for you.
See the point? If you really want to change some of your ways, there’s likely a character issue that needs to be dealt with first.
So, how do you deal with those character issues?
