It’s That Time Again…….
New Years Resolutions…….
It’s that time of year when people make their “To-Do” list for the following year. All of the things they have been meaning to change, but have been able to put off until the new year. It’s easy to do that because you feel like you’re making a plan. In reality, you’re just procrastinating.
Like my friend posted earlier, “New Year’s Resolutions go in one year and out the other”
Resolutions boil down to “Wishes” or “Good intentions”. If they aren’t nurtured or driven by conviction they tend to fizzle out a few weeks into the New Year if they make it that far.
Another friend of mine always says you need to be pulled by your vision, not your circumstances. Having a strong vision will allow you to stay on the course of reaching your goals when life throws it’s inevitable curve balls at you.
This year instead of making resolutions I am going to write down my goals. According to a study done by Gail Matthews at Dominican University, those who wrote down their goals accomplished significantly more than those who did not write down their goals.
Once I have an idea of what I want to accomplish, I am going to break those things down into small “actions” that will keep me on the path of achieving them. Instead of a wish list, it’s more of a map to make my goals a reality.
This year I will:
1. Get on an actual schedule. I will wake up early at a consistent time and follow a schedule so I can make the most of my time.
2. Journal every day and read/listen to something that will help me to grow emotionally and/or spiritually.
3. Continue working out daily and drinking Shakeology every day.
4. Grow my business and help others to make money from home and grow their own businesses.
5. Donate more to charity and find ways to volunteer. I will get my children involved so that they can more fully appreciate what they have and learn how good it feels to donate their time and help others.
6. Plan out meals so that there will be less “let’s just order out” or “What do you want for dinner?” ” I don’t know, what do you want for dinner?” “I don’t know…”
That’s good 🙂
Have a wonderful 2016!
