New Year’s Resolution Tips

 new year resMillions of people use the New Year as a time to reexamine their lives and set new goals for themselves oftentimes to no avail.

People  set unrealistic goals and end up disappointed. Changing your lifestyle is not easy but if it something you want to do bad enough it is possible.

Statistics show that 75% of what we write down happens.  So, grab a pad of paper and start listing all all the things you would like to change about yourself .  From that list pick one or two things that motivate you.

If you want to lose weight– start out with a low goal so that you don’t let yourself down.  If you want to write a book start by writing one page a day. If you start now by this time next year you might have a best seller!

Creating resolutions for things you cannot change is pointless.

New Year’s Resolutions are about personal improvements. Remember where there is a will there is a way! ! Focus on things that you have the power to change and remember it is all about you and how motivated you are to do something about it.

Mark your calendar or put an alarm in your phone to remind you of your resolution six months from now.

Know your strengths and weaknesses.   Set realistic expectations for yourself.  Are your resolutions important enough to you to want work on them?  Take baby steps to help you meet your goals.  Taking small steps towards your goal is better than doing nothing at all.

“A paragraph a day is better than a blank page”

If you can successfully change a behavior that is a problem for you then you deserve to reward yourself!

Making a list of resolutions is easy but  accomplishing those resolutions is not.  Be patiently tenacious with yourself.  It takes about a month to change a behavior but 4 days to fall back into your old way of doing things.

Remember you are the only one who can make your resolutions reality.

Happy New Year!
