Earlier this week I posted an article on New Year’s Resolutions, what they are, general types, are they successful, unsuccessful, etc.
We are going to dig a little deeper to see how prepared everyone is to follow through on those New Year’s Resolutions.
So you have decided this is the year you are going to __________________.
(fill in the blank)
Have you thought how are you going to accomplish this? Before you definitively decide on a goal, have you thought about why you want to do this?
One of my goals is to get my real estate license. Why? I need it for my job. Why do I want to lose weight – better health but being more attractive man is in there but not the first 3 reasons. If it was the first reason, there may be some concern about losing weight for all the wrong reason.
One life coach that I spoke to suggested taking a plain white sheet of paper and writing down everything that was bad in your life. Then on a pretty sheet of paper, write down how to change the bad into good. Sounds very good but it can be deceptively difficult.
Another way to do this is by an annual theme. The idea behind an annual theme is to provide yourself a unifying idea or motif that you can return to and interpret over the course of time and to help you connect any specific goals you might create with your highest desires for yourself.

In any event, I wish everyone health, happiness and prosperity in the New Year!
