New Year, New YOU
January is just around the corner and with it fast approaching comes the usual empty promises that we make for ourselves: Join the gym, save money, lose weight, stop smoking or cut back on the booze.
Considering life coaching is a great way to maintain those goals. Life coaches advise people how to make themselves happier through positive changes in their lifestyle.
Here are some tips on how you can become the person you want to be by setting small attainable goals, and making yourself accountable for them, whether it is writing them down or sharing them with friends or family to make sure you achieve these goals.
The fewer things you have on the brain, the better. Which means narrowing down that list of ten resolutions to only two or three you really want to achieve.
Create a clear goal and a plan
If your goals are a bit vague, you won’t really know when or if you have succeeded. And without a clear plan of action, you won’t either. By creating a plan you will be able to keep track of your progress and your goals, and you find the motivation when you are feeling lazy i.e. to go to the gym. Track it by keeping a diary and ticking off the days you want to go / or have gone – if you can see the days when you’ve stuck to your resolution, it’s much harder to break it and it will then become a habit rather than a chore.
Do it with a friend
When you have someone with you to support and motivate you and vice versa sticking to your goals becomes easier as you firstly, don’t want to let them down, and secondly, you have someone cheering for you to succeed. Most activities are far more fun and varied when you are in a pair or a group. If you’ve decided to take up a new hobby, for example, you will definitely have more fun if you can do it with someone you know.
Create a Vision Board
A collage of images, pictures or quotes to keep you inspired and motivated of your goals is a great way to use the law of attraction to attain your goals.
It’s OK to Fail
So you have completed all the steps to try keeping you on track but you have started to fall off track, what now? Don’t sweat it – give yourself a break, we all fail at times, the most successful people in the world has also faced failure and have gone on to achieve even better and greater things, so get back on the horse. Try asking yourself what you would say to a friend or family member who has failed at something. Now… say it to yourself.
So start your resolution and smash them – you’ve got this…!
