      Why does everyone think they should just make resolutions on New Years Day?? Should be done every day!

          I hate the few weeks after New Years bc all the salads are gone from the store and the gym is crowded with people who can’t even use the equipment

            any change is 20% head knowledge and 80% behavior.

              Well last year I actually wrote down my New Years resolution and it was “find a way to control my anger” and I did it lmao.

              So glad this new evidence-based understanding of behavioral self-control is finally reaching the wider public!! Thank you Dr. Phil for using your platform to spread the most important ideas psychology has to offer, even ... (especially!) ... when they challenge conventional wisdom.

                  I rebuilt my rotary engine, but I took a lot of time and acknowledged when I didn't want to do it and said oh I'll get to it tomorrow.

                        @Loachspider No one said that therapists were rare. Also, you don't even give examples of mistakes he makes. Also, the fact that his sessions are being recorded is not an argument. People appear on the show of their own volition, and he does show discernment between those who want help and those who are clowns.

                        NintenFan I know, he’s trying to be a therapist. Apparently that’s supposed to be some rare thing that no one knows about (it’s not). But in almost every episode he either makes some massive mistake or doesn’t even try, just the fact that everything’s recorded should’ve been bad enough. Not to mention the fact that he treats people that are being dead serious the same way he treats people who are joking and looking for attention.

                        @Loachspider There are multiple definitions of "doctor", ranging from medicine to professionally.

                          Phrixis He doesn’t warm hearts, he puts people on stages so he can make them look bad. In fact, I’d bet billions that he isn’t even a real doctor.

                        I started naltrexone. No more drinking. I've seen two die. One on Christmas. I start the shot tomorrow. This is not a resolution. This is my LIFE.

                          silverpairaducks you can do it! Just remember, making the choice is half the battle! Just stick to your plan and you will be fine! Good luck to you! And perhaps you can find a new hobby to take up your extra time! Fishing, surfing, painting, welding, etc. You might have a soul searching moment where you look in the mirror and not know who you are anymore because you were this other person for so long. Don’t be scared if this happens. The great part about this is you can become a brand new person; a much better person. Try new things. Things you wouldn’t typically have done. Make new friends. Good ones too! And always remind yourself that you are in charge of your decisions and your future. Don’t let yourself down.

                          Good luck to you and I’m so happy for your future!
