Resolutions are for suckers!  Pretty big words from a guy who’s industry pretty much depends and banks on New Year’s resolutioners each and every year.  We prey on and pray FOR the people who flood the gyms every January.  But these people who are the life blood of our winter are also the bane of our spring!  The definition of the word “Resolution” is as an INTENTION to do something (as formally agreed on by a legislative body or other person or organization).  I don’t want you to make a resolution.  I want you you make a COMMITMENT!  Commitment – dedication; application.  People who make resolutions break them.  According to statistics, about 1/3 of resolutions are broken by the end of the month, and 80% don’t survive the year.  Not good.  Not good odds, and not good resolve.  I want a commitment.  Commitments are meant to last.  Marriage is a commitment (unless you’re a Kardashian).  Hell, 50% of marriages end in divorce.  Still not a good number, but absolutely glowing, when compared to New Year’s resolutions.  So, this year, don’t resolve to be better.  Commit to being better.  Don’t resolve to lose weight, commit to weight loss.  Resolutions are for suckers.  Don’t be a sucker.
