Fifteen Tips To Help You Keep Your New Year Resolutions



We're one third of the way into the new year. How are your resolutions holding up? If you're making progress, give yourself a well deserved pat on the back. But if you happen to be stuck in a rut, jot down these handy tips:

  1. Write your goal down on paper.
  2. Create two columns - for the pros and cons associated with your goal.
  3. Put all of the pros and cons in the appropriate column.
  4. Look over the list and put an asterisk next to anything that does not directly affect you.
  5. Remove the asterisk marked pros/cons from the list.
  6. Carefully look at what remains on the list.
  7. If very few of the remaining pros directly affect your personal growth, you've picked an unattainable goal.
  8. If you have a sufficient number of pros remaining on your list, then you need to look at how much time you've allowed yourself to accomplish your goal.
  9. Specify your goal e.g. lose 50 pounds by [specific date].
  10. Break the goal down into small, incremental steps e.g. lose three pounds per week.
  11. Record the short term goals in a journal.
  12. Review the journal because patterns will eventually emerge. As you progress toward your long term goal, repeat steps which bring success while avoiding those which cause you to stall.
  13. Post encouraging words on your wall, and on index cards and refer to them throughout the day.
  14. Each morning perform affirmations that focus on attaining your goal.
  15. Congratulate yourself for each small success but don't berate yourself for your failures.


The fifteen tips I listed above will make the journey toward accomplishing your goal a bit easier. Just remember, that nothing in this world comes easy. If you really want it, you're going to have to work hard to get it.
