Every year we make them; mostly we break them.
Do you remember, nearly a year ago now, the goals, dreams and aspirations you had for the year that's nearly over. In the euphoria of New Year celebrations, amidst the cleansing feeling of making a fresh start, we seem to take the barriers off our minds and picture the life we'd like to live and the person we'd like to be.
We think of the money we're going to earn, the wealth we'll build, the body we know we should have, the fantastic lifestyle with abundant time for the family and, of course, the freedom that we'll have to control our own lives.
One of the things we either fail to recognize, or just push into the background with the thought of "we'll get to that later", is that, to achieve any of these things, we're going to have to make some changes. The hard truth, which we instinctively know but don't want to admit, is that all we have done in the past and are currently doing has got us to where we are now and, as a very wise person once said "If nothing changes, nothing changes".
If you want that healthy body, you will need to change your eating and/or exercise habits
If you want more money, you'll have to change jobs or maybe start a home-based business.
If you want better relationships, you may need to change the way you look at things or mix with different people
I'm not trying to scare you; attack your self worth or take away the fun that you have every New Year with this process.
But what if you could succeed? What if you successfully achieved even half of the New Year's resolutions that you have in mind to put out there again this year? Would that differentiate you from at least 95% of the rest of the population?
Do you think, at the end of the coming year, you would have a real sense of achievement and a feeling of personal growth in yourself? Do you think you'd feel like a winner? Do you think it would be worth making a few small changes to fee like that?
By now, of course, you're probably thinking "what he calls small and what I call small are probably two very different things" - and you may be right!!
Here are 4 key tips for getting maximum benefit and satisfaction from your New Year's resolutions:
Don't make too many - this will vary with the individual but you will know from previous experience how big a number that is. If you make lots (maybe to impress your partner or your peers), when you wake up in a day or so and look at your list, the mountain will seem so huge that you won't even take the first step on any of them.
Start work one at a time - trying to do several things at once splits your focus and severely minimises your chances of success at any of them. Have, at least, a vague idea of where you are going to start before you put anything down or share with someone else. For instance, if you want more money, you might think of going on the internet to check out home-based business opportunities.
Your very first resolution should be to start immediately (well, at least, the next day) with some action toward your first goal or dream. It doesn't matter if it's only a small one because the sense of achievement you get when you complete that will spur you on to the next one.
These principles and techniques are only a small part of what is known as Personal Development and...
How about having access to an award winning Personal Development home study course that has been put together by coaches who have achieved significant success by applying the principles PLUS the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of these high-achieving entrepreneurs?
You can develop a winning attitude and mind-set that will give you the chance to look back at the end of next year and say "WOW!!" because you are well on your way to a significant income and lifestyle that you thought was only for the "lucky ones".
