We hope that you all must have geared up for celebrating New Year’s Eve and step into the year 2019 with your new year’s resolutions. But we understand that keeping up these resolutions can get difficult.
Here are 7 simple ways that can help you follow your New Year’s resolutions and ensure that you achieve all your goals:
Choose achievable resolutions
Many times it happens that instead of lifting your spirits, the resolutions that are hard to attain leave you distressed and dishearten you. The best way to keep your resolutions is to choose them keeping in mind the following points:
- Choose realistic goals
- Choose clear and focused goals
- Do not choose resolutions under any social pressure
- Pick up limited resolutions
- Prioritize your resolutions
Brace yourself to achieve the goals
Merely setting the targets is never enough. You should have the determination to achieve the set goals. You should prepare yourself mentally to follow your new year’s resolutions. You should indulge in careful planning while choosing the resolutions and also while following the set goals. It is said that it takes a minimum of 21 days to form a habit. So brace yourself to achieve your targets and fulfill your new year’s resolutions.
Share your resolutions with your friends and family
Once you have chosen the resolutions and set your mind to achieve them, you should disclose them to your close ones. Sharing your resolutions with others is a great motivation factor. It’s a constant reminder to keep working towards your goals in order to satisfy not only your wishes but also to keep up to the expectations of people with whom you have shared your resolution list. Sharing your resolutions will instill a sense of obligation in you. Also the admiration you would receive on completing your resolution will keep you motivated and in high spirits.
Do not hesitate to ask for help
One thing that many of you do is try to figure out things on your own. While this is a good practice, but, when you are in a pickle or you feel that a little help can make things smooth, you should never hesitate to ask for one. Your friends and family members are always there to support you. You should be open to them and seek their assistance upfront if you need help.
Take liberty to appreciate yourself
You should break your larger goals into smaller ones. For instance, if your resolution is to read 1 book per month, you can break this down to reading 30 pages per day. And once you achieve this goal take the liberty to appreciate yourself. Boast about it on your social media accounts and celebrate this little victory. It is rightly said that little drops of water make a mighty ocean and thus you should appreciate the strength of these droplets i.e. achieving smaller goals that lead to a bigger goal.
Be a part of a community
One way to ensure that you are on track to fulfill your resolutions is to join a community where people with similar interests as yours can motivate you to work rigorously to follow your new year’s resolutions. You can share your doubts, your achievements, your failures, your queries with the community members and move towards achieving your goals gradually and steadily.
Never give up
Sometimes it is okay if things don’t go as planned. You should accept these setbacks and move ahead. If you give up after one failure, you will be further away from realizing your new year’s resolution. You should be determined to follow through your resolutions irrespective of any failures or setbacks. You should just keep in mind that these failures are the stepping stones that help you make progress towards your goals.
