If you’ve already slacked off on your New Year’s resolutions, you are not alone. According to Statistic Brain Research Institute, more than 40 percent of people who set goals for the beginning of the year abandon them in the first few months. Here are some ideas for getting those goals back on track.
Remind Yourself Why You Wanted to Do This
Making lasting changes in our behavior can be uncomfortable, and when we feel discomfort, our natural inclination is to move back to our comfort zone. Remind yourself why your goal is important.
Look at Your Stumbles in a More Positive Light
Nothing teaches life lessons better than failure. Take a look at your situation and try to find the important lessons in it so that the next try will be more successful.
Tweak Your Goal
Sometimes your goal is not formulated correctly and you are focusing on the wrong thing. If you goal is to make more money, how are you going to get there? Perhaps a goal of finding a new job combined with reducing expenses would be a better way to go.
Ask for Help
We can’t do everything on our own. If your New Year’s resolution was to lose weight, it can be easier to do with a friend. The two of you can keep each other motivated to go to the gym and watch calories.
