Happy New Year ya’ll, I am very excited for what 2017 will hold for us all. Keeping with the New Year’s theme I want to discuss New Year’s Resolutions.

What is a New Year’s Resolution? A New Year’s Resolution is simple, it is a change in behavior. Sounds easy right? Well not so much. According to an article written by Forbes in 2013 only 8% of people who have a resolution will succeed.


Why do they fail?
  • You have too many goals or try too hard.
  • Your goals are too broad.
  • You expect instant success.
  • You don’t enjoy the process.
  • You don’t track your progress
  • Lack of motivation
  • No accountability 
  • You don’t believe in yourself



What do we do to succeed?
  • Be specific. Success is not possible overnight. Take your goal and turn in it into smaller goals to follow and those smaller goals into specific time frame. Don’t forget write them down. The more specific you are the easier you will be able to stick with it. Take it a step further and put together a calendar.
         -Goal: To treat myself better 
         -Specific goals:
               Manicures – Once a month
               Pedicures – Once every 3 months
               Yoga – Once a week
               Massage – Once a month until knots are worked out then, once every 3 months.
               Water intake – Six glasses daily.
               Women’s group – attend the women’s group at church once a month.
               Husband/wife spending time with God – Begin with reading a marriage book together. Three                  chapters a week.
  • Make your goal easy to measure. Use must track your progress which will allow you to always know where you stand. Evaluate and reflect your progress and determine if you need to make changes. If your goal is diet or exercise related keep track of what you eat or your exercise habits. If your goal is a behavior change or mental stability keep a journal. 
  • Motivation is a must, this is what keeps you going. Find this motivation whether it is weight loss, health, an emotional boost, or your family. 
  • Find a friend or a family member that helps keep you accountable. Go public with your goal to a select few. Other people knowing will help you to keep going.
  • Celebrating between milestones well keep your spirits up. Goals can be very difficult so we all need to celebrate even the most minor successes. **DON’T CELEBRATE WITH WHAT YOU ARE CHANGING – don’t celebrate with chocolate or a steak and potato dinner if you are on a diet. 
  • Focus on the behavior you are trying to change and not the result. Chances of you relapsing is higher. Once you reach your goal weight or save a certain amount of money you may slack off. Make what your goal a behavior change, make it a habit. 
  • You must believe that you can do whatever you set your mind to. Without the confidence you will likely give up.
  • This is going to be a long process so make it enjoyable. Having a good time will keep you in good spirits and keep you going. 
  •  If you work too hard you will burn yourself out. Always remember to take small steps, celebrate your wins and have a good time!!

Have a happy and blessed new year!

Thank you for these tips that you've written here. Almost all people have their own versions of new year's resolutions. Some were able to do what's on their list, but some failed after trying. It's a good sign that we make a list of something that we wanted to do for a coming year, I just hope we'll be eager enough to fulfill what we promised to ourselves. It's true that a big achievement comes from the smallest goal!

We can't avoid being too ambitious. I mean, it's free to dream a dream, so why not dream for many things to happen. If you are like that, you just need to simply your goals. Also, arrange your goals, like you need to accomplish things one things at a time. Well of course, you can not do all things at once, right? You'll get confused and overwhelmed when you try to be a hero and do it all. Remember to just focus on one thing firsts before proceeding on to the thing. Having many goals is not bad, you only need to know what your priorities are on that moment and you should do that first.

Before the year started, I planned so many things to happen in my life. I listed them one by one so that I could see if they are coming to life. In my surprised, I am almost done with the list. Only three are left. I cannot wait to finish this year with a blast! I know beautiful things are coming my way. I believe and claim it!

New Year Resolution is not only the time to party, but it is also the time to bring new things into life. At the same time, keeping in mind that the changes we march towards should be good and dignified. An idea that shapes and reflects you in a better way can be considered a New Year Resolution. Every year, we can make our mind ready to accept good things that are difficult though and leave off the bad ones that are hard to leave though. Setting New Year Resolution is a good habit to renew ourselves year after year.

This resolutions don't really work for me. It is better to stay persistent and just do what you need the whole time.

I have two: Eat less, study more. If I can do those things it'll be a productive year.

I believe that to achieve all of its goals it is necessary at the time when the new year has come to drink a glass of champagne in which to prematurely throw a burned note with wishes like the Russians do. They say heartburn contributes to the fulfillment of all your desires, there are many examples.
