A new year signifies a new beginning. So many of us quit our New Years Resolutions before the end of January. Why is that? More importantly, how can we prevent it from happening?
Here’s a brief list of my suggestions:
- Find an accountability partner. This person will keep check on you, and help you stay on track.
- Decide to accomplish the goal. When you make the actual decision, there’s no longer time for leniency.
- Make a timeline of tangible steps. When you break a task down, it can appear much less overwhelming.
- Do it despite your fear. Most new things are uncomfortable and scary. As a species, we immediately begin doubting ourselves with all the what-ifs. Let’s try to replace that with “Let’s see how far I can get!” That’ll encourage us to try again.
- Celebrate every step! You working hard on something is worth celebrating. Even if no one else does with you, or even knows, take a minute to be your own cheerleader. You deserve it.
I would like to close with this writing I published just this morning.
Have a great Wednesday and stay Safe!
With Love and Light,
