Happy New Year!
Do you make “new year resolutions”? If so, what are your reasons for making “new year resolutions”?
Is it out of guilt about not living a life that is more responsible and respective of yourself? We all fall short and can do better.
Any time during the year, we can making new resolutions that will improve our life.
A new calendar year provides us all the opportunity to evaluate our lives, regardless if we make new resolutions or not. If we are not genuinely ready to make the changes in our life, then, we will be more successful if we wait to make the resolutions.
How to be more successful with your follow thru on resolutions.
- Make a list of things you want to change “new resolutions”.
- Develop a plan for each resolution.
- Separate each resolution into its own category of easiest to implement (incorporate into your life so it feels like a “normal” part of your day) and maintain.
Implement each resolution one at a time.
Slowly, thru ought the year, incorporate each resolution into your life.
Trying to make all your changes at once can be overwhelming and frustrating. Once you have integrated the first resolution into your life and your life is feeling “normal” with the new resolution, implement the next one.
It is ok to stop a resolution if it is not working just right. The action plan may need adjusting. As long as you are moving forward, you are moving and to be commended. We are all a work in progress.
May you discover the person you want to be and are meant to be.
