Day 5: Why Your Resolutions Always Fail
It’s Day 5 of the Challenge, and today is all about making resolutions we can actually stick to.
In our efforts to flee from sin and temptation, people often have a lot of resolve at the beginning, but that resolve tends to dwindle after a while. This is why we need a long-term strategy for change.
We must remember this truth: When you are at your best, plan for your worst. When your resolve to quit porn is high, it is important to remember a day will come when your resolve will not be as high, and we need to have a plan in place that carries us through those days.
Read “Why Your Resolution to Quit Porn Will Fail Miserably (and how to succeed instead).” The article covers some principles you already know (like having an “exit strategy”), but goes beyond this to the long-term plan: how will you stay motivated amidst all of life’s ups and downs?
Remember: After reading the article, take some time to write down the most memorable take-aways in the 40 Day Challenge Journal. Make sure to fill out your self-assessment charts for the day as well.
