Another rotation of the sun has come and gone, with it, another year crossed off. For some it was great, to others it was meh; regardless, I hope everyone learned something new and grew with it.
For many, a new year is a great time to choose new resolutions and/or goals. Whether your goal is to travel somewhere new, determine a new career path or get on a healthier track, there’s always room to grow.
Keep It Simple, Silly. When you pick your goal, make a step-by-step list of how you want to achieve it and when you want to accomplish it. For example: if you want to lose weight, the first step would be adjusting your diet and simply cutting out excess sugar (no candy, desserts, added sugar into coffee, etc). If you’re looking for a new job, create a list of what makes you happy or what you want to achieve within the job – financially or personally.
Next, decide when you want to see results and mark it down in your calendar. Keep yourself accountable to your own goals.
Everything in life takes time, but more importantly it’s the will of creating a habit (one that becomes second nature) that will ensure success. Stick with it. Results don’t happen immediately – change takes time and patience. If you fall off the wagon one day, hop right back on and repeat it the next.
Stay happy and smile!
