“I believe in the person I want to become.”

New years resolutions are aspects of yourself and life that you want to improve on or add to. It’s an opportunity for greater success with some people but for others, it may be a sinking pit to an inevitable failure. Here is how to set goals for the new year that will last.

Firstly it is essential to realize the things that you have held yourself back from this past year, things like speaking to people, taking a chance or building a career. There are millions of reasons(shyness, laziness, fear) that may have stopped you from doing them and it is important to recognize those factors so you can improve on them this year.

Secondly, think about the new traits/actions that you want to adopt into your life. Use the habits that successful people in your niche have incorporated into their lives. Remember not to use like 100 ways to upgrade yourself as that is not very realistic. Pick an amount that you feel you will stick to and achieve.

The last part of making real new years resolutions is writing them down. Creating some type of physical list with your resolutions allows you to visibly see them every day which will be a constant reminder of who you want to become. A crucial part of writing each one down is to also write how you’re going to accomplish each goal.

Examples:

1. Begin working out, I will start by going to the gym every weekday

2. Not letting fear control me, I will do something that scares me every month

3. Make more money, I will work overtime and make money online

Let me know if you found this advice helpful and comment what your new year’s resolutions are!!

5 Steps to Better and Healthier Resolutions (2 min read)

The holiday whirlwind has officially ended with the ball drop on New Year’s Eve and the reality of New Year’s resolutions is starting to set in. Social media is filled with all types of resolutions, especially when it comes to health. Many resolutions are arbitrary statements, like “I will eat healthier” or “I will exercise more” with no clear, measurable goal. Or, a resolution may be adopting an eating pattern that’s too restrictive, like “I’m cutting out sugar.” None of these are the true recipe for health.

Happy New Year’s everyone!  The New Year brings with it an opportunity to start anew.  In our culture, it is quite common to make New Year’s resolutions.  The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a resolution as “the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc.”  A resolution is basically a goal.  I think it is great that people use the New Year to make resolutions.  Having goals for oneself is always encouraged.  People relate well to cycles; a new year is essentially the natural beginning of a cycle, thus a relatively convenient time to set goals.  Obviously, we should not confine resolutions or goals to New Year’s Day.  We should all be in a state of continually developing and progressing ourselves.

Shut Up and Drive (3 min read)

If a close ‘friend’ told you that you were never going to make it in your profession, be great at your hobby or do well in life would you actually believe them?

I guess the obvious answer to all of the above is, well maybe. But when this number starts to grow and things look tough it can be hard to be positive, go against the grain and take on your own personal challenges. That’s why remaining positive, determined and having that drive are sometimes harder to find, I’ll admit personally the whole idea of this gives me anxiety but for some miraculous reason I just have this driving force to keep me moving forward.

Firstly when tasked with attempting to take on this blue, unmotivated feeling you’re likely to get comments such as ‘just smile’ or ‘you shouldn’t think like that’, feeling motivated yet? Probably not. But if you begin to picture the end goal and the feeling of this moment then things start to feel a tad more achievable, so say I wanted to get an A in my next test the initial thought of this may be quite daunting and demotivating in itself. However look at it this way, first of all, ask yourself ‘is this goal remotely achievable?’ No? OK so I aim for B this is definitely more within my reach and I’m only averaging a C.

Next, once you have created this realistic personal goal you may want to assess the time frame, in this example, it would be the test date. So from this, I can take the time to mentally or physically plan ahead and meet the self-created or set deadline. Not pushing on yourself, but then not completely ignoring the fact that THERE IS A DEADLINE! To put it simply put say a few hours aside each weekend before the exam to properly study and remove social media, your phone and any other distractions from the scenario. It may be helpful to beforehand plan how you may use the time you have so say this week I’m going to focus on topic A because this is the one that I most struggle with.

Finally the last thing to do would be refresh and remind yourself during the week for example if you picked up the studying you had done or the work you had completed and just went over it for say ten minutes just to ensure that it was stuck right there in your mind and that your brain hadn’t forgotten about all the ‘supposed’ hard work you had done. Allowing for that thought to be mentally instilled in your mind, almost forcing your brain to store the idea, plan or studying at the forefront of your mind.

In summary, the situation and positivity you feel are relative to how much time, and overall effort you want to possess to be at the desired end point.

Key points (if you don’t have the time to read!)

  • Positivity = the key
  • Picture and feel the end goal
  • THERE IS A DEADLINE!
  • Refresh and remind
  • Have fun whilst doing it 🙂

S.M.A.R.T. Goal Setting: How to Achieve Your Goals (1 min read)

SMART stands for Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Time. When setting a goal (long-term or short-term) it needs to be specific, the more specific the better. For example one of my goals this year is to get down to a BMI of 20%. Measurable for my goal means to be able to check in weekly (weekly weigh ins) and see if I am coming any closer to my BMI goal. If your goals are more mental try keeping a journal to track yourself. Is your goal achievable? It is great to set high goals but…you want to be able to check it off. Something that would be a good example of this is if my goal was to get a BMI of 20% by tomorrow…probably not going to happen. Which brings us to being realistic.

Mom always said, I was not OK, and I needed to improve a lot.

An imposed discipline, a forced regime, an apologetic promise were created to assure her, that I intended to be good.

The New Year Resolutions were framed and hung on the wall, to remind me of my inadequacies.

I can’t recall when Mom’s/ Boss’s voice became my inner voice, and I continued to rebel against myself.

Resolutions, like promises, are meant to be broken. After all, I’m OK.
