58: How to make your New Year’s Resolutions work. It isn’t Willpower.

Elephant Journal: Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis show

Summary: Cheerful New Year from Waylon Lewis! In this episode, Waylon discusses what New Year's Resolutions often lack. Willpower breaks, falters in the warm trance of the present moment "maybe I'll just eat that entire cake." Motivation comes from empathy, from appreciation, and from the feeling that we can be of benefit. "What is one thing I feel compassion about?" Ask yourself, "What is one thing I'm grateful for?"
