New Year resolutions have somehow managed to develop a poor reputation. And it’s no surprise given that only 8% of people who make resolutions stick to them. In other words, dreams are being ignored because people are afraid they will not be able to accomplish them.
This new year, try a different approach to fulfilling your dreams.
If you waited this long for inspiration to change your life, here are some pointers on how to stick to your resolutions:
The First Month Is Crucial For Your Resolutions
The science of habits shows us that it takes about 66 days to form a new habit. Any changes that you are resolving to make in your lifestyle will take at least 2-3 months to stick.
The biggest challenge is getting through the first month. That is your primary goal. To get through January with the lifestyle changes you want to make.
Create A Structure & A System
Creating a structure keeps you on track for a goal. Creating a system helps you enjoy the process and ensures you are not disappointed when the goal is accomplished.
If your new year resolution is to run a full marathon, the structure you need involves regular training and a healthy diet. But approaching this resolution with a systematic approach will help you handle the post-marathon blues. Many runners experience a crash after the high of completing a marathon.
Focus On Quarterly Goals
Rather than focusing on what you want to achieve by the end of the year, write down quarterly resolutions. You can even break the year into a six-month milestone and have half-year resolutions. Whether you want to publish a book, build your email list or multiply your income, having a shorter timeframe keeps you motivated.
The end of a calendar year presents you with 365 new days of potential.
