New Year's Resolutions

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~ Lao Tzu
The New Year is a time for new beginnings, new goals and new opportunities. Many people use the start of a New Year as a reason to commit to change. People have great hopes of changing what they do not like in their lives yet, within a couple of weeks, they have given up on their New Year's Resolutions. I would like to give a few tips on how to discover ways to help you make New Year's resolutions that will stick.
Don't make too many resolutions.
Pick a realistic, attainable goal with a reasonable time frame.
Choose your own resolution. Make sure your goal is something that you want to accomplish for yourself and not just for friends or family.
Make a plan and write it down. Plan what you'd like to accomplish in a certain period of time, like three months. Achieving small goals over time gives you a sense of accomplishment and motivation to keep going.
Writing your goals down is a good way to keep track of your progress.
Involve friends and family. They can support your efforts and can motivate you to keep going.
If you get off track, forgive yourself. Review your plan and make adjustments.
Congratulate yourself. Remember to reward yourself when your intermediate goals or resolutions are met.
