A very happy (nearly) new year from Ann and me!
As 2017 rolls in, perhaps you’re thinking about setting some resolutions. Maybe you want to change your eating habits, start a new fitness regime or commit to a meditation practice.
And that’s truly fantastic. We applaud you for wanting to progress with a healthier outlook and positive new habits. Ann and I will certainly be setting our resolutions, too. January 1st, with its fresh energy, is a powerful time to create positive change.
But have you ever got all excited about your resolution, only to fall off the wagon by January 15th? Haven’t we all! It’s a disappointing feeling, but it can be avoided. Let us share with you our tactics for sticking with those new positive habits and creating the life of your dreams.
The reason resolutions slide is that people don’t put a strategy in place after setting their goal. It’s only natural that, as normal life resumes after the new year celebrations, the resolution gets forgotten and old habits slip back in.
That’s why a clear action plan is essential here. Brian Tracy, the father of goal setting, underlines that a goal without an action plan is useless.
An action plan is essential for concretising a large goal like ‘lose 20 pounds by summer’, by breaking it down into smaller, actionable steps. It also keeps you accountable to your goal, since the action plan is a written document, preferably displayed prominently.
In today’s video we delve into the science of achievement. We explore the art of goal setting and how to establish that all-important action plan.
We also share some surprising ways to maintain your enthusiasm for your resolution as the weeks go on. These spiritual practices may seem unrelated to success, but they are truly effective for staying on track and checking in daily with your goals.
