- Focus on one resolution, rather than several and set realistic, specific goals. For example: saying you want to lose weight is not specific. Say you want to lose 10 pounds in 90 days. Or I’m gonna walk for 30 minutes every day.
- Like I said earlier. Every day is the beginning of a new day, a new chance to make resolutions. We don’t have to wait till the end of the year.
- Take small steps. When you try to get there fast taking
bigfootsteps, it can require too much effort and action all at the same time. You can get discouraged and tired. You become unmotivated and stop reaching towards your goal. So take small steps.
- Hold yourself accountable or tell the people around you. It has proven that the people around you have a significant impact on your behavior. If you tell somebody about your plan and goal, chances are bigger you stick to your plan/goal.
- Surround yourself with like minded people that have done what you want to do or are going where you want to go. It motivates you to see that vision right in front of you. Knowing that it has already been achieved gives you the strength to continue and to hold on.
- Reflect and be honest to yourself. Unpredictable changes can happen along the way. Don’t be afraid to change your strategy to achieve your goals.
- Enjoy the ride and celebrate your small accomplishments. Don’t be obsessed with your destination. Because it’s not only about the destination, but the process is important to. It’s the process that creates the change. It’s the process that makes you stronger and gives you the life muscles you need in order to get from A to Z.
