Hi there! Are you ready to make a resolution that sticks? Great, because that’s exactly what we’re going to help you do today.
First things first, let’s get into the right mindset. It’s important to believe that change is possible, no matter how stuck you may feel. I know this can be easier said than done, but trust me, I’ve seen firsthand how big of a difference a shift in mindset can make. It’s not about changing everything around you – it’s about changing yourself. And when you do that, the world around you changes too.
So, how do we actually go about making a resolution that sticks? First, it’s important to commit to it. Write it down and tuck it away somewhere special. It’s one thing to think about a goal, but it’s another thing entirely to commit to it in writing. This can help you connect to your resolution on a deeper level.
Next, think about why you want to make this change. It’s easy to start from a negative place – “I hate how I look in the mirror” or “I’m sick of never having enough money.” While it’s important to acknowledge these feelings, it’s equally important to flip them into a positive statement. For example, “I want to feel confident and healthy when I look in the mirror” or “I want to have financial stability and security.” This positive mindset can help propel you towards your goal.
Now, let’s talk about accountability. It’s easy to make a resolution, but it’s much harder to follow through on it. That’s where accountability comes in. This can be a friend, a family member, or even a group of like-minded individuals like you’ll meet in my Mindset School! Having someone to check in with and keep you on track can make all the difference.
But what about when things get tough and you feel like giving up? That’s where self-compassion comes in. It’s important to be kind to yourself when you inevitably encounter obstacles and setbacks. This means learning how to see things from a broader perspective and giving yourself grace when you don’t meet your goals perfectly. Remember, it’s okay to make mistakes.
Finally, don’t be afraid to celebrate your progress and small wins along the way. This can help keep you motivated and remind you of how far you’ve come. Sometimes you can spend so much time giving your time and energy to others, you forget to put yourself at the top of your own list.
Making a resolution that sticks isn’t easy, but with the right mindset, accountability, self-compassion, and celebration of progress, you can do it. And don’t forget – change is possible. Believe in yourself and your ability to make a positive change in your life.
