2017 is right around the corner, and it is the perfect time to talk about New Year’s resolutions.
Have you already set your own New Year’s resolutions? A lot of people don’t set theirs anymore. They kind of get tired setting them every single year because eventually, they figured out they are not achieving them. So, they do not bother setting them in the first place.
Statistics show that 95 percent of the New Year’s resolutions, people just break them by January 15 which is only two weeks after the year started. So, why do people set New Year’s resolutions? When the New Year comes, there’s this kind of energy and a vibrant atmosphere that people acknowledge for them to have a fresh start.
People look back at their previous year, and thought of the things they have achieved and didn’t achieve. And then, they look forward to the New Year filled with hope that this time it will be different.
Most people fail to achieve their New Year’s resolutions because they already focus on the outcome instead of the progress. They see themselves in their new house, new car, new looks or whatever they want to achieve this year. But you should focus more on your progress. It is the only thing you can control.
You need to take control of your progress and shift your New Year’s resolutions from something nice to have to something you must have. It should be something that will become a part of your life moving forward. You do whatever it takes to achieve it. Again, focus on the progress over the outcome. That is the difference between a wishlist and a resolution.
The term resolution comes from the word resolve. When you resolved something in your life, it becomes a part of your reality. And that shows how determined you are to do something and make it a part of your life. Treat something not only as something nice to have but as something valuable part of your life. That is how a wish becomes a resolution.
In order to shift things from your wishlist into resolutions, you need to raise your standards. Expect more of yourself on what you can achieve. Also, you need to know the control you can take in your life.
Once you raise your standards toward yourself, the world and on the things that mean to you, that is when you feel the change working.
Here are three steps in creating your New Year’s resolutions.
The first step is to define your resolutions positively. For example, if you want to create a new income stream, you can say “I want a new income stream to cover my debts.”. Another way of saying it is “I want a new income stream, so I can provide for my family.” or “I want new income stream so I can travel the world with my family.”
Instead of focusing on your debts, you seek the positivity it can bring to your family, And that increases your energy and fills you up with determination to do whatever it takes to achieve that resolution.
The second step is to figure out the reasons of your resolutions. Chances of achieving your resolutions are higher when you have good reasons. Think about it and make them sincere. If you want to go on a diet, think about what it would benefit you in the long run instead of focusing on just looking good.
The third step is to put it on your schedule. In that way, you can concentrate on your resolutions even if you don’t have the exact steps on how to achieve them. Because when you think about it every single day, things will be a lot easier for you to achieve.
