New Year’s Resolution Or New Year’s Commitment?

Do you make New Years Resolutions only to lose interest in a few weeks time?

What’s the difference between a resolution and commitment?


I read a post this morning from Sonia Bueno de la Torre about making a New Year’s Commitment instead of making a New Year’s Resolution. I really loved the difference in the wording. I personally don’t normally make New Year’s Resolutions, I haven’t for many years. A long time ago, I realized that I just don’t really keep to them. And, I figured, why wait until the new year to make a change. I make changes all year long as I feel inspired to do so and I never felt they were any less powerful or any different than making a New Year Resolution.

However, I do like the sound of a New Year’s Commitment vs. Resolution.

So, what is the difference between a resolution and a commitment? 

The definition of a resolution is “a firm decision to do or not to do something” or “an intention”.

The definition of a commitment is “the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc”.

I find that the word commitment feels so much more powerful as if there is nothing that is going to stop you. I feel that the word resolution (intention) feels less powerful, sort of like, “well, I have this intention to lose weight, but, I’m not really committed to do so, and if a piece of cake gets in my way, well, so be it. That cake will win, as I am not committed“.

For me, the word commitment feels more like it’s cemented and sturdy, not moving or wavering.

For me, the word commitment is a dedication no matter what. It is happening, and it is happening no matter what!

Do you have an intention to lose weight, or a commitment to lose weight?

Do you have an intention on to produce more money this year, sort of just hoping? Or do you have a commitment to doing whatever it takes?

Do you have an intention for better health, more happiness or whatever? Or are you 100% committed to make it happen?

Just some thoughts as you begin your new year and make resolutions or commitments for something different this year.

If you are committed to making real changes to your health, wealth and happiness this year, I invite you to visit and make a committment to yourself and work with the most comprehensive method of energy medicine for profound shifts physically, emotionally and spiritually.
