During this time of the year, one of the common things I hear from people is they want to have a New Year’s resolution. I think that almost everybody hears that. Among the people that I know, patients, family members, friends, a lot of them, when they say New Year’s resolution, it comes to my mind how many of them do they actually get that done. I want to help with this. I am going to give you a few tips on how to make your New Year’s Resolution a success. You can also watch my video about this blog here.
Tips on How to Make your New Year’s Resolution a Success
You have to just make a goal that’s realistic. Don’t say “Hey, I want to lose 50, 70 pounds.” The goal too big. You have to be realistic. You have to be forgiving to yourself, and be understanding of what you are able to do. So, I recommend starting small. Start with a few pounds, if that’s your goal.
Or if it’s, let’s say, to gain weight, be in better shape, be better in sports, or something, start with something small. That way, you’ll be able to achieve it faster, and then you can go for the next step, okay? So, be realistic, start with something small, and then be consistent with it. Whatever steps you’re taking, be consistent, because a lot of times, consistency will be the key. Lots of times, the goal cannot be achieved overnight. So, start with small steps, and then be consistent until you reach your end goal.
If you don’t achieve it, or you fail to achieve that landmark to go to the next level, don’t be too hard on yourself. Don’t beat yourself up. Try to be understanding, forgive yourself and then try again. That’s where consistency is going to play a factor. So, you try again, and then just keep trying, and the next time you learn from the past, and then maybe you’ll be able to achieve it on the next time you try.
Once you start making progress, I want you to track your progress, because it’s easy to be discouraged and say “Oh, I’m not making that much progress.” If you track it, then you’ll see, “Hey, you know what? I’m actually making these small gains.” And if you keep adding these small gains, at the end, when you look back after eight weeks, you’ll see that, yeah, you actually achieved a lot more than what you thought. So, track your progress.
Then the last thing that I want you to do is you have to talk about it. You have to voice it up. And what I tell people is you have to claim it. Because once you voice it out, you’re voicing it out to the universe, there’s something that happens there.
And also, if you don’t believe that aspect of it, when you tell your friends and family about it, they’ll support you. Everybody needs that moral support. Everybody needs that support for them to continue in trying to progress and keeping track of the progress. They’ll help you with that. It can be moral support, can be physical, can be financial. Once you tell people about it, they tend to hold you accountable, they tend to help you more.
So, those are a few tips, a few things that you can try and do, and hopefully you’ll be able to achieve your resolution for next year. And not only a New Year’s resolution but anything you want to change.
