Year after year, most of us set resolutions and attempt to keep them up all year. Some of us succeed, while others forfeit along the way. Those who end up forgoing their resolution before the year’s end may feel discouraged when the New Year comes. However, there are effective ways of setting and reaching goals that can be implemented with New Year’s resolutions.
If you haven’t thrown in the towel yet, here are some tips on how to set realistic New Year’s resolutions for 2016.
Prioritize Three Goals
Of course, you likely feel inclined to make a list of all of the things you want to resolve to change in the New Year. The problem is that there may be too many things for you to focus on, thus dampening your success. Instead, focus your top three goals on something you want to stop, start, and continue.
STOP: There is likely a bad habit or more that you want to stop. Narrow it down to one habit and focus on eliminating it.
START: In the same vein, there are good habits we want to start or pick up, but we just haven’t gotten around to it. Pick one of those things to start in 2016 and stick to it.
CONTINUE: You should also acknowledge the things you are doing that are helping you succeed. Keep up your hard work and continue to be met with success.
Visualize Your Wins Use your imagination and visualize yourself achieving your goal. When we can picture our success, it automatically increases its probability in your mind. This also helps to make the goal a little less
Replace “What If I Fail” With “What If I Succeed”
Positive thoughts breed positive outcomes. Once we can start to see our goals being met, we must now change the way we speak to ourselves. By asking yourself, “What if I succeed?” you will find that this can change your whole mindset for the better.
By engaging our trusted friends and loved ones, you are enlisting a positive support system. They can hold you accountable for your actions, and help to encourage you along the way.
Track And Celebrate Your Rewards
An easy way to stay motivated is to reward yourself. Keep track of your progress and celebrate the milestones. By acknowledging these smaller feats, you are reminding yourself that you are getting closer to completing your goal.
