CRUMBLING RESOLUTIONS?



RESOLUTIONS AND MAKING THEM WORK






Some resolutions have probably begun to crumble already. By the 8th day of the year, “okay maybe this isn’t my year after all, I’ll begin well next year”, someone says already.
January, which begins every year is known for the rush and the ‘excitement to do’ it comes with. January lights up the ‘to do’ spirit. Nothing seems impossible in January especially during the first week.However, this fire seems to get extinguished with time and people just get back to their old way of life.

There’s nothing magical about a calendar flip. A new year changes nothing unless you do. Resolutions have become known for inability to stick till the end. These 4 points should help them stick.




·         BE SPECIFIC

Vague goals are much more likely to fail. Set a well-defined goal and layout plans to achieve it. Your goal should include methods for achieving them. You should have specific actions that will be carried out in the process of reaching the larger goal.



·         FIND SUPPORT

You could share your goals a loved one so they can remind you about them, check in on you every now and then and cheer you on or collaborate with a friend with a common goal so you can share tips and support one another in your quest to reach the goal. Talking to others about some goals makes them more likely to be accomplished.





·         DON’T QUIT OVER A SLIP

What defines us isn’t how we fall but how we get back up. Made a mistake of some sort already, just dust it off and get back to your resolution. Don’t let one shortfall take a toll on an entire journey ahead. Get back to your resolution right away. Begin again if you slip up.




·         FOCUS
Comparison doesn’t only steal joy but focus as well. Focus less on what others are doing and more on your own goals and making each day better than the previous.
 Just in case you missed the opportunity to begin on the first day of 2018, miss a Monday or a first day of any of the months ahead, you need not wait to begin. Every day you wait is another day you won’t get back. Keep going, remember why you started.
Plan and aim for the goal. Stay motivated. You can do it.  Do not let comfort zones talk you out of where you’re headed.
