It is a bit late to post for the New Year, but some people are still attempting to make their New Year’s resolution or desperately trying to implement whatever seemingly hopeless goals they came up with.
The truth is that nothing is impossible, unless you’re trying to grow wings or something, the trick is to keep yourself motivated and set goals that are difficult to achieve, but by no means impossible.
Common goals might include financials, physical appearance, intellect, health and so on. Self-improvement is a must for a successful trend of New Year resolutions.
After you came up with a resolution your aim should be to maintain the path by which you were heading, the first step is to write your goal or goals on a piece of paper and hang it somewhere you see first thing in the morning, such as a fridge or bathroom mirror.
The point of this is to keep your goals in your head and not to simply forget them two weeks after you came up with them.
From here we can move to the next step, tell your friends and family about your resolution, it has been scientifically proven that people who set goals and tell others about them are more likely to try and implement them.
If it is possible, try to find a close friend that has the same or similar aim you came up with, that would encourage you to go on and increase your motivation, stay away from the people that drag you down though.
Before you go to bed at the end of your day, try to review how your day went, and see how you deviated from your objective, write down your comments and review them weekly.
Keep this up for 56 weeks or 12 months and you will come to the end of your goal deadline, other than preparing the resolution for next year you should review your previous resolution and see how far you made it.
These are basic steps for you to follow, they key is not to get tired and give up, good luck.
