You started off 2020 with a solid New Year’s resolution — but a few weeks in and you’ve already dropped it. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. In fact, over 40 percent of goal-setters stop following their resolutions before the end of January. If you want to get back on track, though, follow these tips.
Remember your reasons behind the resolution. When you set a new goal, it’s likely going to be out of your comfort zone. This discomfort can lead to resistance. Make sure you remember the reason why you want to make this change to help you succeed.
Try to stay positive. When you find yourself facing setbacks, it can be easy to become negative. Instead, try to stay positive and view how these seemingly negative experiences can help advance your resolution in a positive way.
Look for help. Sometimes, your goals will require help. Don’t be afraid to reach out to others around you to succeed. Use a direct, honest approach, whether you’re trying to lose weight or advance at work.
Reconsider your goal. Is it possible that you’re looking to reach the wrong goal? Rather than looking to do the same resolution over and over, select a different resolution all together. Consider focusing on specific characteristics that can help you improve yourself. For instance, if your current resolution is to lose weight, consider making your resolution something more specific like going to work out four times a week or cutting down on sugar.
