Waking up with motivation, trying to force yourself to get up extra early and exercise… to leave off the desserts… to quit your job and become an English teacher in Taipei… or whatever it is you want to do with your life, is easier said than done.
It’s possible that you did this last year. You’re lucky if that worked! Now you know what to do. If it didn’t, then that’s probably why you’re reading this. Do not be afraid. There’s hope. Here’s how to make your New Year resolutions. that won’t just make you stick to them, it will make sticking to them easy and convenient!
You’ll find yourself coming up with ways to stick to your resolutions almost without thinking about it. In fact, this formula has been used for over 40 years by people who — as long as they followed every step — found themselves getting everything they ever wanted.
The Best Way to Make 2022 a Successful Year!
1.Note down your resolutions for the new year
Each one should be written New Year ResolutionOn paper, it’s down
Are you unsure how to create a resolution that is effective? Here’s what you do.
Begin by listing everything you will need. Next, create a list that includes everything you desire: your abs, car, charisma and the freedom to read a book in the afternoons without worrying about money.
Consider these questions when you are deciding on your resolutions.
1.Are these things really what I want? Or is this just to “sound good,” or because I think it’s easy to achieve?
2. Does this contradict any other resolution? If it does, you can adjust the other.
3. Would this conflict with others — like others around me? If you think so, try to work with them.
4.Are you able to see the positive in it, rather than the negative? It is about you, and not what you are trying to lose. Not a slimmer stomach.
5.Are you sure it is detailed? Include all details, including model numbers, if you really want it.
6.This feat can be done by an individual. Leaping tall buildings in a single bound — maybe not. Owning a helicopter, though…
7.Are you satisfied with the amount? If you really want something, you’ll find a way to achieve it. But if you set the bar low, you’ll only limit yourself.
8.Are I making the necessary personal adjustments? Chances are, you’ll need self-confidence and determination, among other personal qualities, if you’re going to achieve your goals.
9. Have I written each resolution as if it’s already accomplished? Don’t say “I want,” “I wish,” or “I need.” Say “I have,” “I am,” or “I own.”
2.Reread your resolutions at least twice per day
Your resolutions should be read every morning as soon you wake up. Then read the resolutions once more just before you fall asleep.
For future goals, make sure you leave ample space in your notebook or on paper for any new ideas. As you progress towards achieving your goals, you’ll come up with new ones.
3.Make sure to read your resolutions aloud!
It’s possible to do this in front of a mirror or directly to your face, but you should read the words out loud. You will be more likely to remember the words if you say them out loud. This keeps your focus on what you are working toward.
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Making mistakes is a sign that you’re learning new things and trying new things. You are also pushing yourself to improve yourself. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” – Neil Gaiman
4.Imagine yourself reaching your resolutions while you read
Visualize yourself accomplishing each item on your list every time you look at it. Visualize yourself staring into the mirror. Feel the smooth leather upholstery and acceleration of your car. Or, imagine the ocean crashing against you as you relax on the shore. Your visualizations will work better if you are more specific.
5.Be positive in your resolutions
This is something you have already learned. All resolutions must be positive. You should think about the things you desire. Resolutions to get rid of something don’t work.
When you make your resolutions, you probably have things you do want to get rid of, but don’t write them that way. Figure out what getting rid of those things will bring you… and write your resolutions about that.
6.Only make them about you
You can’t resolve to change other people. Sorry, but it mostly doesn’t work — and when it does, there’s always so much “blow back” you end up two steps back for every one step forward.
7.These should be detailed
Just like with visualizations, the more detailed your resolutions are, the better you’ll be able to achieve them.
In many respects, you’re writing a “purchase order” for your mind. You’re telling yourself what to go out and get… and when you’re in the thick of it during the year, all you’ll be referring to is this list. You will know exactly what to do, so be clear with yourself.
Ah, I almost forgot. One more thing. Get started now. You can’t procrastinate or drift along if you don’t want to achieve your resolutions. Make sure you write your resolutions now.
