We’re getting very close to ushering in a new year, which is exciting. Many of us will set goals, but many of us will have forgotten about these goals even before next year is even halfway completed.
Why does this happen?
I believe one of the main problems with goals and new year’s resolutions, is the overwhelm from not having an action plan. People set goals such as “get more healthy” or “lose 15 pounds” or “get my career on track”, but with no action plan or steps, how can we get there—and how can we know if we even have arrived?
Instead of the simple goals themselves, it’s good for us to break things down into steps, habits and behaviors. Do you want to change your spending habits, eating habits, how you spend your time? Ultimately it is our habits that give us results one way or another.
To help you visualize and focus on behavior for success, I’ve created affirmations for a prosperous new year. I zero in on some of the behaviors that really lead to us living our best life—being accountable, being creative, being open to constructive criticism, and more.
I know what it is like to have huge goals set before me, and while I really want to accomplish them, I often get overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin. It is common around this time of year to either lose momentum or get sidetracked.
You set those goals for a reason, and I know you can get there with the right mindset, preparation, and planning.
I created this video to encourage you and help you get back to where you need to be.
I had a little help from my adorable niece who can be seen (and heard) in the video. She’s getting so big!
Feel free to comment and share some of your 2016 goals!
It’s not uncommon for people to fall off from their newly set goals by about the 2nd or 3rd week of the new year. After a month, many will have given up. I made this video to encourage you and refocus you if needed. Please share with others who are setting out to reach new heights with their fitness goals this year!
