New Year Resolutions & How to NOT Throw in the Towel!

by Ryan on January 1, 2012

I remember as a child listening to my parents talk about resolutions and as I grew older listening to friends and family vow to lose weight and join gyms.  I get it. I was on the band wagon, too. I have always been one to resolve to do something at the beginning of a new year, a new month or a new week. Every year I have a list and this year, I guess you could say that I am somewhat throwing that out the window or at least I am taking an entirely different approach than I have in the past. I think it’s good to have goals and to be clear on those goals is even better. But, if you write those goals at the first of the year and never revisit them or throw in the towel mid January well that just leads to thoughts of failure and who the heck wants to start out the year with a negative mindset??!! So, if you are a New Year Resolution-er (not really a word, but you totally know what I mean) I’d like to share with you my approach/advice for the upcoming year.

1) Get super clear on your goals. (Write them in a place you can see them daily…I just bought a cute zebra print journal for mine!)
2) Revisit your list daily.
3) Set daily intentions which should be steps to help you reach your goal. For example, my main goal is to live in the present  moment. My daily intention would be “I intend to focus and live in the present moment and live today to the fullest.” (Again, I will be doing this in my journal)

What are your tips for resolution success??
