New Year, New Resolutions 

[1:50]

Every new year we all are inspired to start fresh, create new resolutions for ourselves, and turn the page to a clean slate.

[3:00]

People often pick what they “should” do as their resolutions, rather than what they actually want to do.

[4:33]

Start a resolution with one specific thing you’d wish to accomplish. It will alleviate overwhelm and be more sustainable into the new year.

 

On Your Own Terms

[7:10]

Your resolution must be something you have decided to do for yourself and not someone else. 

[11:00]

Sticking to your resolutions is about doing it on your own terms and in a way that is in alignment with you.

 

How To Stick with Your Resolutions

[17:00]

Give yourself space, a new year’s resolution doesn’t have to start on January 1st. A resolution can start whenever you want. 

[18:12]

Accountability matters. When you have someone or something holding you accountable you’re way more likely to fulfill your goals. 

[28:50]

Have a system and a strategy of how to stay accountable to your goals. You can do this by creating new habits, a routine or rules that you live your day to day by. 

[35:35]

You have to be grateful for where you’re currently at in order to be grateful for where you’re going in the future. 

In summary, here are the top 6 steps to help you stick with your resolutions:

  1. Figure out what you actually want
  2. Have a system and strategy for accountability 
  3. Invest in yourself and pay attention to who is investing in you
  4. Create systems and strategies 
  5. Make small changes at a time
  6. Be grateful for where you’re at and where you’re going
