How to achieve your New Year Resolutions

Last Update: December 31, 2021

A new year resolution is a positive change someone makes in the new year. Many find it easier to make a change in the first month of a new year as a sign of new beginnings. New Year resolutions are goals you desire to attain a fresh start, adopt new habits. It has become a tradition over the years, an expensive one in some cases.

The best way to stick to your New Year's resolutions is to break them into smaller pieces and make them SMART.

Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely goals should be the target. For example, Don't just decide to join the gym. Decide on the following:

  • What times you want to visit.
  • Weekdays or weekends and stick to it.
  • What activities to join in order to maximise your membership,
  • Do you need a gym partner for encouragement?
  • What sort of gym do you need and is it within your budget.

  • It's all about having a plan and taking some actions to achieve your goals. Without a plan, then chances are you'll soon get off the treadmill. Why did you want to join the gym, is it to lose weight or to tone up. If you plan to lose weight, gym membership on its own will not do it. You may also need food plans to support your goal. Who or what else in your life will be affected by your membership?

    Setting fail-proof resolutions

    Make a proper assessment of time or things you may need to give up to achieve the goal.

    Believe in yourself.

    Write down and monitor your progress.

    You need to be consistent.

    Be motivated and committed.

    Link your new goal to an existing habit. If you are planning to read more books, you may consider audiobooks. Listen to them when on your walks.

    Perhaps it is best to completely remove the New Year before the Resolution. Why, you ask? After the year has progressed a bit, it's no longer a new year and all the motivations have disappeared.

    Conclusion

    New goals are achievable if properly planned and monitored regularly.

    If possible tie your new goal with a current habit you have.

    What habit/s are you trying to change or introduce into your life for the first time?

    I definitely know I need to improve on my writing and engagement online.

    Publish those books sitting on my laptop.

    Improve my earning potential online.

    Make new friends and acquaintances.

    Visit new places, COVID permitting.

    What are your goals in the New Year?

You forgot to share your goals.
Have a prosperous New Year!
