Warning Signs for the New Year: January 24

Being lactose intolerant is one thing. But being intolerant of other people is another. Was yesterday’s post something that makes you sick to your stomach? Today’s post is something that requires even more of an intentional heart behind it…

So let’s get to the next of the 31 Warning Signs. What do you need to be watching out for as you are attacking your New Year’s Resolutions this year? #31WarningSigns

DAY 24

Major Cause of Failure Number 24:

Intemperance. The most damaging forms of intemperance are connected with eating, strong drink, and sexual activities. Over-indulgence in any of these is fatal to success.

– Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich

Just a reminder that this book was published in 1937. Hearing that overeating was an issue back then as well is interesting. Alcohol and sexual activities are always an issue in cultures. Do any of those have clutches on you? It is hard to get away from things that are so the norm in our own lives.

Another thing that I can bring into today’s conversation is technology. We are so busy staying connected on social media venues as well as spending hours upon hours playing video games and binge-watching our most recent addiction on cable or internet streaming services. #31WarningSigns

I guarantee you that if you cut the cord from cable, you’ll have more time. If you use that time to educate yourself, you’ll have some victories. But you have to want it.

Are your New Year’s Resolutions that important to you? Create space and time to continue to plug away at your resolutions. Don’t let overindulgence take away life and energy from you accomplishing your goals today.
