One of the most popular instances of creating a resolution is during New Year’s Eve. Although it is easy to make a resolution, be it to get fit by the end of this year or stabilize a business, it's far easier to break it. In fact, most people break their resolutions within just weeks or even days after keeping them. Be it a New Year’s resolution or any other, it’s crucial to stay consistent and persistent with your resolutions because self-discipline will contribute to its success. Here’s a checklist of the ways you can remain in line with your resolutions.
Unattainable goals are broken the fastest. When you set a resolution, it should be realistically sound. You shouldn’t just put a resolution on the charts because you need to achieve a goal but also take consistent action towards achieving your resolutions too.
Instead of going overboard with vague resolutions such as "get in shape" or "take business to the topmost level," it’s important that you start from the ground up and devise small yet achievable goals. As you complete them, you can still have another resolution and complete it before moving on to the next one. Continue this and you have manageable resolutions in place.
Often, people set out with several resolutions at the beginning of the year only to realize that they won’t be able to fulfill them all. Instead, go for a single resolution at a time or one with tiny sub-resolutions. It could be daunting to do it all together, so it is better to fulfill a single resolution before heading on to the next one.
While it’s true that most people tend to make resolutions just ahead of New Year’s eve or at the beginning of the month, it would help if you were well-planned and prepared for a resolution ahead of time. In its essence, you can create resolutions any day of the year before you have to work towards fulfilling your goals.
You might have planned several resolutions over the years only to break them midway. So, when setting up a new resolution, you must gather the confidence and the motivation needed to keep yourself well-tugged to the goal. The temptation to break a resolution will exist, but that’s something you can counteract with motivation and sheer determination to succeed.
Change is the only constant, and you should remember that every bad habit or ill practice you do and have decided to steer away from will be challenging to do. Once it has been days and weeks of patience and determination, you will feel rewarded that you were able to withstand the urge and temptation and continue holding onto the resolution. Perhaps, it also depends on how dearly you follow your goals.
If resolutions are a battle, you cannot win it alone. You still need help from your friends, family, mentors, coaches, and other individuals in your life to keep up with the resolution.
