New year’s resolutions

Every time we reach the end of the year, we think about everything that happened over the last 12 months, and what’s coming in the year ahead. “I’m going to lose those extra pounds. I’m going to quit smoking. I’m going to start a new sport. I’m going to spend more time with my family.” These resolutions might sound familiar, as they may be similar to the goals you made this time last year. Here we are again, one year later. Did you manage to achieve your goals? If the answer is yes, you should congratulate yourself. If the answer is no, it’s good to note that you aren’t alone in this. Most of us try to keep the promises we made for the new year, at least in the first few weeks of January, but soon enough, the incentive is lost. What can we do to achieve better results in the future?

According to experts, any decisions that make enormous changes to our lifestyles require a great deal of commitment, so the more you believe in yourself and the power you have over your actions, the easier it will be to achieve your goals. A positive attitude is one of the key ingredients of success.
By following these steps, you will definitely bring yourself much closer to success!

  1. Choose your goals based on what you truly want, and not what you feel you must do.
  2. Think of a plan that will help you to achieve your goals and take small steps every time.
  3. Monitor your progress, e.g. by keeping a diary or sharing your experiences with friends. If you have a friend who has similar goals, you can support each other.
