Happy New Year!
So, what is your New Year Resolution?
Sorry if that caused you a twinge of irritation! By the first week of January, New Year resolutions would have been made, shared, and broken too! It’s all too common.
Why do we even bother making resolutions every new year only to face the failure of not being able to stick to them?
For the simple reason that a new year represents new beginnings — a good time to make a change in lifestyle, to reflect on the past year, and make new promises towards a healthier, wealthier and wiser YOU.
Few things to note while making your resolutions
Resolutions are seen as an indirect self-improving technique. However, very often your deeply ingrained habits throw them off-track. For this reason, start with a small step to achieve a greater leap.
Setting a small achievable goal is better than big, impractical ones. There is a greater chance of your being consistent and ultimately tasting success if your resolutions are small, realistic, and practical.
And remember, your efforts to bring about even small changes deserve applause.
Don’t set yourself up for failure. For instance, losing weight is probably the most popular resolution. And there’s no way this goal can be attained overnight. Without setting realistic expectations, chances are you will become easily frustrated and this, in turn, will make you want to give up your goals.
One thing at a time
You might want to make a host of changes, kickstarting a number of activities all at once. However, it’s better to focus on one goal, achieve it, and then move on to the next one.
Training your brain to build a routine takes time. So plan and work towards improving just one aspect of your life at a time.
Seek, find and share motivation
Going it alone more often leads to failure. Sharing your intentions with the right people can give you a much-needed boost when you are feeling low and ready to throw in the towel. Discuss your resolutions in the right social circles, gain from the insights and experiences of others, and inspire them with your own resolve and determination, in return.
You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
Be positive and determined
Nurture a strong and positive mindset. Success is the result of long-term efforts and learning vital lessons from your failures. At times, you might need to give yourself more time. Hence, be patient and determined. Giving up should never be an option.
