A few days left before we say hello to a new year. Many are getting excited and getting ready to meet the most awaited year with their new set of resolutions.
If you are having a hard time reaching your goals or New Year’s resolutions for the past years, we have listed some easy ways or tips to help you successfully hit the target.
1. Make your resolutions simple.
Sometimes people create unrealistic goals that will only result to guilt or disappointment. Consider your time and other resources and be realistic. Keep it simple and focus on the top targets in your mind.
2. Carefully choose your resolutions.
Choose and concentrate on the things that can have a positive impact on your health, fulfillment, and happiness.
3. Create realistic goals.
Face the reality. It is important to set realistic goals that you can possibly achieve. It is also best to start with a short-term goal that could lead to a big achievement. One step at a time!
4. Break goals in portions.
Plan well as a good planning process can help you attain something you are aiming for. To achieve big results, work on those small portions that you can do everyday, weeks or for months. Like exercising every day, saving $10 a week or losing 4 pounds a month. Plan on how to achieve them one by one.
5. Choose a time-frame.
Just like an alarm clock, you also need a reminder that you have to asses your progress in a given time frame. A good diary or calendar can be a great help!
6. Learn to write notes.
Not just a reminder, but notes can be a motivation for you to work hard every day in achieving your resolutions. Write down your own time frame, details of New Year’s resolutions, and inspirations. A slimmer picture of yourself, a picture of your family, an image of a beautiful house or even a shocking credit card statement can fuel your determination and motivation.
7. Enjoy and treat yourself.
Of course, you deserve a reward for every milestone you’ve achieved. So don’t forget to treat yourself from time to time.
8. Receive support from people.
You will surely face trials and challenges in your road to success. So it is very important that during crucial events, you have trustworthy and supportive family and friends whom you can turn to when times get tough. Let them know your plans so they can support whatever your goal is.
9. Don’t ever give up!
It is understandable to slip at some point but that’s not an excuse to give up. Create more room for strength and self-belief. Be proud of the achievements you have in the past and remind yourself that you can start again!
10. Be in charge.
People can give their support and advise all the time but take note: you are the captain of your own ship and you have the control of your own goals. You take responsibility for your destiny and that is something you should be proud of.
Now that you’ve got the tips to keep your New Year’s resolutions, be excited about the process and, most of all, the outcome. Get started now and good luck!
