Most of us like to make New Years Resolutions, maybe not every year, but certainly from time to time and we promise ourselves, that we will stick to them all year, or until they are complete and that we will benefit enormously from the advantages these resolutions will deliver us. Realistically, odds are; that some people will barely stick to any of their resolutions at all, odds are even higher that many people will not stick to most of their resolutions and odds are stacked in the favour; that barely anyone, will stick to all of their resolutions.
Why is that? Are we not committed enough? Is it because we procrastinate? Is life just so busy these days, that we don't get the chance to reflect on our values and the things that are meaningful to us? There comes a time when we realise that Christmas is upon us and we realise that we never spared the time, for those elusive New Years Resolutions. Perhaps we should share our resolutions this year, telling someone else, will make us more accountable, won't it? Should we put it in writing? Or should we back ourselves, believing we are a winner?
Then there are those people who vigilantly, write out plans, set them out on goal sheets, with the pathway laid out before them, each step noted with pitfalls and benefits, they factor in barriers, such as not dedicating enough time, or not making calls, or not sticking to the budget, sneaking too many treats in, which hijacks the diet. These talented people seem to have this vision and the commitment to put in the required effort, to achieve the desired results. These are the same people in life that we come across, who have this level of accountability to themselves.
They can say no when a no is desired and they will act, take the next step and do what it takes to place themselves in the right position to attract all that is beneficial to them. They stack the odds in their favour, by making sure they follow through with their intentions, they do what needs to be done, even if they know they won't like that step.
The fact is, if they don't take the steps they don't like, they can't take the next steps, that bring them closer to their desired outcome. Before they know it, they are standing victorious once more, while others look on with green envy and some pat them on the back and genuinely say, that's a job well done, you deserve it.
How does any of this fit in with Deaf Lottery's Draw No 162 you may be asking? Well there are a lot of metaphors in there about stacking odds in your favour, committing to something you value, people having to get through the steps they don't like, such as speech therapy, group therapy, recognising and accepting that one would achieve a better outcome if they could recruit help and actually reaching out for assistance. It's one thing to say you want to improve things, that you want more for yourself, a better life for yourself. Isn't that what everybody wants? But some of us can just pick up the phone and make that call, most of us are highly independent and don't require input from others. But it is incredibly important, that when someone does reach out their hand for assistance to improve their world around them, that someone is there to point the way, to show them tools they can use to their advantage, give them encouragement and celebrate their achievements with them.
Communication is such a fundamental and established daily prerequisite, most of us don't give it a second thought. A majority of us wouldn't have clue what it is like, to go about your day and communicate with others in a world without or with very limited sound. It is almost beyond our imagination unless we have been blessed to know someone who opened our eyes to another worldly perspective.
