Resolutions~ Goals~Intentions: it doesn't matter what you call them its the follow through that matters.

I've never been inclined to make resolutions in the past because, to be honest, I haven't had much success with them. I used to put a lot of pressure on myself by attaching a specific date, time, and set of expectations to these resolutions. Consequently, if I didn't manage to execute them flawlessly on the very first day, I would feel like a failure. The truth is, once that January 1st has passed, you can't turn back time.

It's important to realize that whether you call them goals, intentions, or resolutions, their success ultimately hinges on follow-through. To achieve that follow-through, having a well-thought-out plan in place is crucial. Sometimes, it's necessary to grant yourself a bit of flexibility when it comes to timelines. After all, January 1st is just one day, with only 24 hours. Trying to make significant changes all at once on that day can feel overwhelming.

A more effective approach is to break down your aspirations into manageable steps, allowing yourself the time and space to work towards your goals steadily. Remember, success isn't about a single day but the journey and progress you make along the way.

Believe it or not most people don't start their new goals until mid~month. We talk about them and procrastinate a little then we get going.

Top 3 Resolutions:

#1~ Save Money

#2 ~ Lose weight/get healthy

#3~ Quit.....something

What are you working on? Here's a way to get organized thoughts and follow through.

  1. Set Clear and Specific Goals: Encourage your readers to define their resolutions with clarity. The more specific and measurable the goal, the easier it is to track progress.

  2. Create an Action Plan: Suggest breaking down larger resolutions into smaller, manageable steps. A step-by-step plan makes it less overwhelming.

  3. Accountability Partners: Emphasize the importance of having someone to share their goals with, whether it's a friend, family member, or a coach like yourself.

  4. Regular Check-Ins: Recommend regular check-ins to assess progress and adjust their approach if necessary. This keeps them on track and motivated.

  5. Visualize Success: Encourage visualization exercises where they imagine themselves successfully achieving their resolutions. This can boost motivation and self-belief.

  6. Celebrate Milestones: Remind them to celebrate even small achievements along the way. Celebrating milestones reinforces the feeling of progress.

  7. Learn from Setbacks: Explain that setbacks are a normal part of the journey. Encourage them to view setbacks as opportunities to learn and adjust their strategy.

  8. Keep a Journal: Suggest keeping a journal to record their thoughts, progress, and setbacks. Writing can be therapeutic and help maintain focus.

  9. Stay Flexible: Emphasize the need for flexibility. Sometimes life throws curveballs, and it's okay to adapt their goals accordingly.

  10. Self-Compassion: Remind your readers to be kind to themselves. Self-compassion is crucial during challenging times.

  11. Find Motivation: Help them discover their intrinsic motivation. Ask questions like, "Why is this resolution important to you?" to uncover their true reasons.

  12. Visual Reminders: Encourage them to create visual reminders of their resolutions. Post-it notes, vision boards, or digital reminders can help keep their goals top of mind.

  13. Seek Professional Help: If their resolutions involve health and wellness, like weight loss, remind them of the benefits of consulting with a professional like yourself for guidance and support.

  14. Peer Support: Suggest joining support groups or online communities with people pursuing similar goals. Sharing experiences and tips can be motivating.

  15. Review and Adjust: Recommend periodic reviews of their resolutions and progress. If a goal is no longer meaningful, they can adjust it to better align with their current aspirations.

To ensure consistent follow-through, having a support system is key. Always On Your Side Coaching offers various opportunities for you to connect with an accountability partner or join a group.
