A resolution can be life changing or more dreaded than that leftover holiday fruitcake. If you’ve been working on one for the New Year, here are a few tips for success.
First, make a plan. Victories don’t come without strategy, a solid game plan, and an accountability partner or two. Good intentions and willpower alone won’t cut it.
And forget the quick fix. Lasting change requires long-term effort, so don’t fool yourself into thinking success will be instant. You have to ready yourself for a marathon, not a sprint.
Finally, it’s important to realize resolutions aren’t for everyone. If you’re not genuinely ready to change, you’re setting yourself up to fail. If you’re not sincere, then forget it.
