New Approach To Resolutions

Have you ever set a New Year goal only to find yourself giving up after a week because the goal was way too hard!


If so don’t worry we all have been there.


Maybe your goal was to work out 5 days a week, or avoid all carbs, or give up alcohol for a whole month.


All of those goals were probably set with good intentions but in reality, they set you up for failure.


It is easy to fall into the all-or-nothing mindset at the beginning of the year.


This year it is time to do something different.


I want you to first create your resolution (If you have one), after you do that you are going to ask yourself a few questions.


One a scale of 1-10 how confident are you that you can achieve this goal.


1 meaning “absolutely no way I can do this ever!”


10 meaning “this will be a breeze I pretty much do it now.”


In the beginning you will probably be on the lower end of the scale. And that is perfectly okay and normal!


I want you to start asking yourself a few questions. These questions will help you get the number much higher.


Ask yourself:


What do you think will move you one step closer to 10?


Can you keep the goal but adjust how often you do it? (Instead of working out 5 days a week, you aim for 3)

Is there anyone with whom I can work on this goal? (Having a support system is huge!)

What am I willing to give up and what am I not willing to give up? (This might help you realize your goal is not as important as you think)

These are just a few questions but what we are trying to do is simply adjust the dial so you make your goal attainable.

You want to end up at an 8 or 9 out of 10.


Why not a 10/10?

Then you wouldn’t really be challenging yourself. If you are absolutely confident you can do it it’s most likely something you are already doing.

Your goal should have you step out of your comfort zone but not be too hard that you can’t reach it.
