It’s Groundhog Day which means January has come and gone! And if you made a New Year’s Resolution, I’m curious about what you have learned so far. If you didn’t make a resolution, I completely understand and want to hear how you successfully implement improvements in your life!
According to Statistic Brain:
- 41% of Americans usually make New Year’s Resolutions
- 17% of Americans infrequently make New Year’s Resolutions
- 42% of Americans never make New Year’s Resolutions
- 9.2% of these people felt successful in achieving their resolutions :-(
- 48.4% of these people have infrequent success
- 42.4% of these people never succeed on their resolution each year
I stopped making New Year’s Resolutions a long time ago because I fell into the 9.2% category. Looking back, I realize I failed because I decided to make a resolution at 11:59 PM, a minute before the darn ball dropped. I mean how much thought did I really put into that decision? Zero thought. In a rush, I followed the pack and promised to exercise more, eat better, or have more fun. Sound familiar?
When we put little to no thought into what we want and/or how we can realistically get there, we set ourselves up for failure. As your coach, I want to help you achieve thoughtful and highly achievable improvements in your life, all year long!
My passion is helping people move forward with courage. You increase your courage by remaining curious about the life around you and taking the time to consistently look, learn, and live.
Here are my tips for achieving ongoing and lasting improvements in your life:
1. Identify and clarify what you want to achieve --- not what someone else is doing and not what someone else thinks you should be doing,
2. Explore all the feasible options and paths that you are willing to pursue
3. Commit to learning every step of the way--- Observe what works for you, what you like, what you don’t like and accept that it’s okay to refine your path and/or your goal until it meets your needs
It’s only when you're honest about what you want for yourself and what you’re willing to do to get there, that you're more committed to keeping your promises and more likely to be successful.
So, tell me, what have you have learned?
