As the year 2018 draws to an end, we start preparing for welcoming the new year with a blast. The year-end get-togethers, parties with friends, dinners with relatives, all are planned during this time. But, it is not just the celebrations which we plan as we also decide our goals for the coming year. So, a New Year Resolution will surely be a part of the festivities this time too. As we know, we all make several New Year resolutions but are never able to follow them. This time we have decided to provide you with some tips which will help you follow your New Year resolutions and make them work.
Here are some easy tips to follow your New Year Resolutions -
Take small steps – It is really important to build up your confidence and get familiar with whatever you are doing. The ultimate goal for the beginning days is to take small steps and move forward. Do not rush to achieve success, try to get accustomed, and enjoy the tasks you are doing. For example – if you want to lose weight then do not work out extensively all at once, rather first begin with some warming up exercises. Slowly, increase the duration of exercises and reach the next level.
Learn from the mistakes of the past – Each wrong attempt shows that you are trying and each wrong attempt teaches you a lesson. So, if you have failed pathetically in the past then don’t lose hope rather take a moment and think where did you go wrong. Also, analyze that have made too big goals which can’t be achieved or were you too weak to conquer a challenge? When you get the answer, start focusing on your shortcomings. Set goals which you can achieve and try to avoid the mistakes which were made in the past.
Treat yourself after achieving every milestone – You deserve appreciation at every point whenever you achieve a goal or milestone. If you are able to take even a small step praise yourself as you have come a long way from the beginning. Remember, don’t miss your goal and never forget the purpose of taking the New Year resolution. Keep in mind to celebrate today and work hard as success is not far away now.
Track your growth – Keep a track of your progress as it serves as a source of great encouragement. Write your intention each day on a sticky note and check it off at the end of the day for making sure you have achieved your goal. Change the plan if you see there is no growth or you are unable to accomplish the goal set by you. Every week, check what you have achieved this week or the previous week. Be your own teacher and focus on your own growth and try to achieve a bit more each week.
Work hard in silence – We often announce our New Year Resolutions in front of people. But we all know we should not. If we want to achieve a certain goal then we should keep calm and continue working on our betterment. Never tell your new year resolve to anyone as on New Year they will praise you for sure but later they will criticize you even if you try hard to achieve your goal. So, work hard in silence and let your success make the noise.
Smile more this year, work hard and be determined. You are surely going to get positive results in the upcoming year.
