One of the hardest parts about being a parent is, if you want to be a good one, you have no choice but to be the kind of person you hope your kids will be. The problem? You are not that person. None of us are!
As we get close to the end of 2021 and the start of 2022, it’s the perfect time to assess where we are. What flaws, what habits, what patterns are you struggling with? What behaviors are you modeling…that you shouldn’t be? What potential do you have that’s sitting unfulfilled? What steps could you take to become a better you, a you that not only would you be happier with, but that your kids deserve?
Now stop putting that off. Stop letting yourself get away with less. Get better!
Here’s one way you can do that. For the fourth straight year, Daily Stoic is running the New Year, New You Challenge. It’s 21 actionable challenges—presented one per day—built around the best wisdom in Stoic Philosophy and backed by painstaking research, timeless science, and feedback from thousands of past participants.
Every year, we talk about how this is going to be the year. The year that we become our best, most disciplined, most productive, most resilient, most inspiring selves. The one where we become the person our children deserve. And here we are again, staring down the barrel of another new year. Make this the year you stop talking about it and start being about it!
The Daily Stoic New Year, New You challenge was made to help you do that. It was made to help you:
- Take control of your time
- Quit harmful vices
- Be more patient and understanding
- Break negative thought and behavior patterns
- Prioritize the things and the people that really matter.
And much, much more…
You should think here near the dawn of 2022, what are the risks and downsides of NOT striving to reach your potential? Of NOT modeling the behaviors you hope your children one day routinely display? Of another year of NOT being the you your kids deserve?
You have to always be striving to be your best self. You have to show your kids someone who seeks out challenges and ways to get better. You have to demand more of yourself in 2022. And one of the ways you can do that is by signing up to take on the Daily Stoic New Year New You Challenge!
