New Year’s Resolutions – Part 1

Have you started thinking about New Year’s resolutions? In some cases, holding off on a resolution may improve your chance of success.

For many of us, once a goal gets off track, getting back on is tough. Worse yet, some people beat themselves down with negative self-talk and that’s never a healthy option.

Now I’m not saying don’t make a resolution, but depending on your goals, the best first step could be to not step just yet.

You may increase your chance of winning by waiting for the right time to start and when you’re ready, here are a few tips for success.

  • First, plan. Victories don’t come without a strategy, a solid game plan, and an accountability partner or two. Good intentions and willpower alone won’t cut it.
  • Second, forget the quick fix. Lasting change requires long-term effort, so don’t fool yourself into thinking success will be instant.
  • 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 and motivated, then forget resolutions. But if you are ready, celebrate your successes, even little baby steps.
