Happy New Year! Resolutions??

Every year you set new goals for yourself. If your like most people, by February your resolve is waning, and by May you don’t even remember your resolutions. Then on Dec. 31, you find yourself saying, “How did I waste a whole year?”

This year can be different! Pick at least two or three strategies from my list below and implement them starting today. Then, instead of scolding yourself on Dec. 31, 2011, you’ll be saying, “Look how much I accomplished this year?”

-Write it down: The truth is by writing it down on paper forces you to get clear about your goal and what it is you want to accomplish. This simple physical act helps cement the desire in your brain.

-Find a replacement: What can you choose to add to your life that will fill the void left by eliminating a bad habbit? Example; TV time with family time, candy with fresh fruit, music with personal development audios.

-Tell someone: Talking about your goals to someone allows other to encourage and help you by providing resources and information you may need.

-Take baby steps: Even small steps daily toward your goal consistently will move you in the right direction. Once you experience small wins, the bigger steps become much easier.

-Take BIG steps: DOn’t taske all year to do what you can accomplish in a day. Once you’ve written down your list of goals for the year, figure out which goals could be accomplished today, this week, month…

-Decide & Act: Mental hurdles will keep you from making decisions and taking action. Get over it! Make a list of all the reasons you want to accomplish your stated goal. View this list daily to assist you in staying accountable to yourself…

-Team Up: Even if you don’t share the same goal, having a “success buddy” can keep you accountable. Meet on a regular basis (in person or by phone) to check in on and encourage one another.

I wish you all success in the upcoming New Year and may it be a Prosporous on as well.

*God Speed*
