As the new year begins, some of us have made resolutions that we probably will quit on by the third week of January. As if we weren’t already struggling with the many responsibilities of adulthood. But, it’s good to have resolutions that’ll help better ourselves as individuals. Now the question is how do we follow up on those resolutions. Here are five easy ways this can be done:
Write down everything
Writing everything down put things in perspective. I usually have a little notebook that I keep with me at all times, so I can go through it and make sure that I’m on track with my goals and anything else that needs to get done. You can try doing that or you can even download and use an app, since majority of us are on our phones ninety percent of the time.
Think short-term, not long-term
Don’t try to do everything at once, take baby steps instead of trying to make a big leap. If your goal is to become a doctor, you first have to enroll at a college or university. You then proceed to taking four years of classes and completing your degree even before you get into medical school. This example is to show you that whatever goal you set is not gonna be achieved immediately. You have to go through certain processes before reaching that goal. So, don’t rush the process.
Have a reward system
Who doesn’t like to be rewarded, right? Rewarding yourself when you accomplish a task whether small or grand, will make you want to keep working at it. So, reward yourself every once in a while.
Share the experience
Whether you decide to enlist the help of a friend or a family member is totally up to you, but don’t go at it alone. Having a support system goes a long way, because from time to time you need a little push and those close to you can help give you that push.
There are going to be days when you just don’t feel like it, but one sure way that’ll get you going is by motivating yourself whether you read motivational quotes, books, or just give yourself a pep talk.
YOU GOT THIS!!
