Welcome to 2013! Your new year was probably greeted with exciting cheers as you celebrated with friends and family, toasting to success and happiness in the year ahead. No doubt, someone in the party had to bring up the R-word. Yes, Resolutions – so good intended, yet often amounting to no more than an ill-conceived attempt at self improvement. But resolutions could be so much more than that! The New Year really is a wonderful time to take a step back and consider how your life is going. Take a moment to do some deep self-reflection and follow these tips to develop a resolution that will actually make a difference in your life and create a plan to make it happen!
- Take a moment for self reflection. Look over the last year of your life and take time to evaluate how things are going. What were some of your happiest moments, your successes? Also take note of areas where you could use improvement or things you want to change in your life. Be sure to try and identify the source of those issues. Is this something that keeps re-occurring in your life?
- Make a realistic goal. Based on your evaluations, what can you do to increase the successes and limit the challenges in your life? Be as specific as possible about what real changes need to be made in your life.
- List why you want to make those changes. This is probably one of the most important components, but it’s often overlooked. If you have strong reasons why you want to make life changes, then you are probably much more likely to go through with them and stick to them.
- Make small steps that will help you reach your final goal. Big changes are difficult and overwhelming. Break down a goal into smaller components so you can work every day to make small changes.
- Reward yourself. Be your own cheerleader! Making changes is difficult so reward yourself for your accomplishments and give yourself credit for trying. Just doing something to try and improve yourself is huge so keep up the good work and tell yourself that on a regular basis!
Good luck to everyone in accomplishing all their goals for 2013!
