If you made a New Year’s resolution this season, then chances are you may be among the many people who swear to make a change but often end up giving up at some point in the first quarter of the year. New Year’s resolutions come with the right mindset, a person wants to be better, do better and such but they lack the necessary thought process to ensure their resolution sticks. Today, I am sharing some tips on how to stay strong with your resolution this year.
The first steps to ensure you stay strong with your resolutions this New Year is to commit to small changes. Perhaps your full resolution is larger than life and in turn, you’ve set yourself up for failure. Take that resolution and break it down into smaller changes and you’ll remain strong.
As you achieve each small change during the process of staying strong with your resolutions for the New Year, reward yourself. Having some sort of reward system in place for every successful step will ensure your mind stays on the ultimate goal; your full resolution.
Have a pad of small note paper near your desk or in the kitchen, keep it in a place where you can access it on a regular basis. Write your resolution every day so that your mind is focused on that end goal of whatever you’ve set your mind to for the New Year.
Know the Why
Anyone who remains strong with their resolution in the New Year has a strong why behind their resolution. Think about why you want to achieve this resolution. Once you have your big why write it down and keep that reason awake in your mind so that you remain strong and committed to this change.
Consider gathering a group of people who want to stay strong with resolutions for the New Year too. This group will help you to hold yourself accountable as you travel along the path that is a positive change in your life.
There you have it, a few tips on how you can stay strong with resolutions for the New Year. Each of these tips will surely help you be successful with whatever you’ve set your mind to achieve this year.
