Achieving New Year’s Resolutions
Goal Setting for Success
Research shows that “Achieving New Year’s Resolutions” are often difficult because they rarely stick. Have you ever thought about why this occurs and how you can make them last? As I write this it’s only 3 short days before we welcome 2019. But it could be 3 days away from 2020 or any New Year for that matter. It doesn’t really matter. The point that does matter is are you making goals that you are able to attain? Are you moving forward with your dreams and aspirations? Therefore the question to ask yourself is are you truly ready to stick to “Achieving New Year’s Resolutions?”
In the past, have you found yourself making New Year’s resolutions and after a few weeks you find yourself drifting back to old habits? Maybe if you’re really super determined, you quit after a couple of months. You’re not alone. This is why I wrote “Achieving New Year’s Resolutions.”
Ready for a Fresh Start in New Year? While many people have good intentions, without a solid plan, discipline, accountability, and a clear mindset, Achieving New Year’s Resolutions can become a thing of the past until the next year. Don’t despair. I’m sharing a few tips to teach you how to stick to them this time around.
Six Tips for Achieving New Years Resolutions
- Create S.M.A.R.T. goals. I’m sure you’ve heard these before but are you putting them into practice? Goals need to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. Here is an example. Let’s say you want to experience less anxiety and more peace in your life. You need to find a way to be specific as to what causes your anxiety. For example uncertainty at your job, finances, a relationship.
Now using a scale of 1-10 to determine where you are and where you want to be. You also need to give yourself time to learn tools to manage anxiety and track your progress realistically. I ask my clients to record their moods daily for at least 30 days and notice thoughts that trigger anxiety or depression.
Keep yourself accountable. If you don’t have the resources to hire a coach or a therapist, ask a friend or colleague to be your buddy. Whenever you need to report your progress or lack of it to somebody you will take your goal more seriously. This person can also help you see blind spots and encourage you when you have an off day.
Daily Acts- Achieve New Year’s Resolutions
Do it daily! If you want to feel better, less anxious and more at peace you need to create healthy daily habits. Some examples are meditation, relaxation, exercise, getting enough sleep and eating nutritious food. Good nutrition is vital and consists of as an example fresh vegetables, seeds, nuts, organic and grass-fed meat/poultry. In addition ideally, you want to dedicate at least 15 minutes in the morning and in the evening to practice positive self-thinking and self-love.
New Year’s Resolutions- Summation
Work on your limiting beliefs. Think about why you haven’t been successful before. Many times, my clients know what the issue is yet they don’t know how to stop or change. If you want to change your beliefs you need to first know what they are. Often, I hear this, “I am not good enough” or “I am a failure.” A great tool is to question your beliefs and ask yourself if they are still serving you. If you determine the answer is it is “not”, now it’s time to create new ones. You see many beliefs, for example, were formed before age 7 when we were young children and didn’t know any better.
You need to believe in yourself and never give up even when you have an off day. Create visual representations that you can see daily such as a vision board. A vision board has been my friend and over the years I have had several of them. I’m a firm believer in using them because they are powerful! My vision boards even helped me find my soulmate as well as enabling me to create a vision for my life. It’s getting closer to my dream every day. Persistence and determination go a long way.
Wishing you a happy, healthy, peaceful and prosperous New Year.
Remember that you and only YOU are the creator of your life, so stick to it!
