Do New Year's resolutions work?
Yes! If you do!
Resolving to do something for the new year doesn't mean that you post it on Facebook, tell all your buddies or girlfriends and then promptly forget about it once Jan. 2 hits.
You must resolve to make this New Year's resolution into a changed behavior.
There's a huge difference between the things you do every day, every single day, and the things you do only when you are inspired.
You will find that once you've committed to doing something daily, the inspiration comes, but only after you discipline yourself to do what you are supposed to do.
I've found that in my life most change came out of desperation NOT inspiration. I was desperate for a change, I made the change and then BOOM, I was inspired.
3 Steps to Improved New Years Resolutions
1. Write down what you want to achieve this year. Yes, writing it down is more powerful then just spouting it out.
2. Put a plan down in writing on what you need to do to achieve your desired outcome in the new year.
3. Schedule it. Yes, open your calendar and schedule when you are going to do what you have resolved to do. Goals are just dreams until written down and scheduled.
I know this sounds simplistic. Because it is.
It isn't easy. If it were easy everyone would achieve all the "said" they wanted to do in the new year.
Since you are reading this, my guess is you are a doer and not just a talker, so take out your note pad and your calendar right now and get to work on making 2105 your most accomplished and fulfilling year yet!!!
