Wow wow wow!!!
Isn’t it amazing that everyone reading this made it to the new year?
Am super excited, how about you?
Many draft out plans few days to the New Year, some as soon as the year begins while for others its like a custom to them.
Some call it ‘My new Year Resolution’
However research has shown that 80% of people give up on their New Years resolution by the second week of February!
And that’s because what most people call ‘resolutions’ are really just desires they wish would happen.
The majority of people aren’t actually resolving anything within themselves
If you want to be part of the few that do versus the many that talk, you need to be crystal clear- what specific results will you accomplish?
What’s your WHY(your reasons should come first and answers second)?
How will you do it?
What tools, strategies or resources do you need to make it happen?
1. EVALUATE YOUR LIFE NOW
When writing out your new year’s resolutions, looking at your current situation is the absolute place to start.
You should rate certain aspects of your life- such as finances, personal growth, spiritual growth, health, family, relationships, career.
Recognising the areas you want to focus on can help you determine the goals that will make the impact on your life.
2. START SMALL
Using your overarching resolutions as a starting point. Create a list of smaller steps you can take in making them a reality.
For example, if one of your goals is to reach a target weight, create a list of healthy and measurable ways that you can embrace a healthier lifestyle.
Complexity is the enemy of execution
3. KEEP A GRATITUDE JOURNAL
Taking time each day to recognise the good in your life is a great way to keep a positive and healthy mindset.
That gives you an opportunity to pay attention to the beautiful things in your life and continuously motivate you to create even more positivity moving forward.
Use this time to be kind to your mind as a response to your goals- reflecting on opportunities for growth, celebrating the progress you achieve and cheering yourself on every step of the way.
4. CREATE A MANTRA
Creating a phrase that inspires you can help to remind you why you are pursuing your resolutions.
Write it down and put it on display or say it to yourself everyday whenever you need to be inspired.
Most times a few positive words are all you need to keep your goals in motion.
5. CHECK YOURSELF
Plan a weekly or monthly self-check to keep an eye on your progress and get back on track if you fall off the wagon.
After spending 3-4 months living out life in the new year, take out time to reevaluate and readdress the resolutions you’ve set.
This will allow you focus on what goals have been achievable.
What goals are still achievable and what goals may require a change of approach.
Can a year actually be a supernatural one? YES and a thousand times YES
A new year can seem overwhelming. But it also can be beautiful, exciting and supernatural.
Above all, its a great time to recognise the accomplishments we’ve had in the past and the successes we want to achieve in the new year!
Dont just make your year beautiful, make it supernatural and memorable.
