I hope all of you had a great Holiday! I hope you got to spend it with those that matter the most to you. I can’t believe 2017 is almost over in just two days! I hope it served you well.
As we all know with the end of a year and a new one fast approaching it wouldn’t be fitting without New Year resolutions. Each year millions have New Year’s resolutions and come mid-February all that motivation, fire and excitement you had in January has died down. Let this year be the year that you finally stick to yours!
Here are 8 ways you can keep your resolution this year!
1. Start small
Whatever it is (let’s say it’s to lose 50 pounds) start with 5 pounds and work your way up.
2. The buddy system
Just like riding your bike when you were a kid. Start with a friend with the same like-minded resolution. Be each other’s support system there is power in numbers.
3. Gave yourself a break
Change takes time. Don’t beat yourself up just because you didn’t hit your goal but a certain timeframe.
4. PMA – (Positive Mental Attitude)
Change can be scary even the ones you chose. That nagging voice creeps in and talks you into doubting yourself resisting personal growth. The only way to beat doubt is to change your thinking and believe in yourself. Who care if you failed a couple of times before that you won’t fail this time.
5. Consistency is key
For true results you have to put in the work. Keep a schedule, a log, make a date with yourself something to keep yourself accountable.
6. Pick a resolution you enjoy
There has to be some enjoyment in what you are doing in order to reach your resolution. If it feels like a chore or a hassle changes are you will not complete it.
7. Have a plan
Without a plan you just have a wish. Create a plan that will help you reach your resolution, write down steps how of how to get the finish line. Break down those steps into smaller steps like daily, weekly, months goals. This will keep you from feeling overwhelmed about how to accomplish your resolution. Remember “itch by itch anything is a cinch.”
8. I got time for it!
Carve out some time to work on your resolution. Maybe you can watch less tv or wake up an hour earlier in the morning and use that time to work on your resolution. Just like in life anything you really want you will make time for and you’re resolution is no different!
