Give Your New Year’s Resolutions a Second Wind

I’ve scheduled a few calls this week to keep you motivated toward your goals.

Studies suggest that most people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions within 30 days. You don’t have to be like most people. This year can still become your best year. Now is not the time to give up. Writing your book, starting a non-profit, expanding your business, saving money and advancing in your career can still happen.

By February 1st you will be 1/12 of the way toward the end of the year. Do you feel as if you are 1/12th of the way toward reaching your goals? Will the month of January be a reflection of the rest of the year?

Here are a few quick tips to keep you motivated all year-round:

1. Be Gentle With Yourself. There is no need to beat yourself up for not maintaining a weekly or daily goal. Guilt and shame are counter-productive emotions that keep you stuck in a rut.

2. Observe What Did NOT Work. What were some of the distractions that held you back during the first 30 days? Begin to keep a time log on how you are really spending your time.

3. Implement a New Plan of Action. You learned a few great lessons about what to do and not to do. Now is the time to develop a new strategy that will keep you on track.

4.. Read a NEW Book. There are hundreds of books about goal setting and motivation. Ask your friends for a few suggestions.

5. Make Your Vision Plain. Place your goals in a picture frame and look at them everyday. Learn how to create a vision board.

6. Get Support. Hire a life coach or get an accountability partner.

7. Be Flexible. Always be open to changing your approach along the way.
