New Year Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions ~ Are You Smashing or Crashing Yours?

It’s the last week of January 2018 … Remember New Year’s Eve? … Remember those resolutions you made? … How’s that going?

If you are still committed to your resolutions, congratulations !! I recently read an article that said January 17th is “Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day”. If you “ditched” it, that means your resolution didn’t even last for 3 full weeks ☹

It can be very discouraging, that is why I have changed my thinking/opinion on the topic of New Year’s resolutions. I do like to take time to reflect at the end of each year. I try to take stock (so to speak) of my intentions that I set out in the beginning of the year. I try to think rationally, not emotionally (a skill that I am constantly honing it all aspects of my life). I try to keep things in perspective – everything is not always black & white. Then I plan for the future … what things are important to me to achieve?

That’s why I like to make Goals … not resolutions! To me, resolutions can almost seem like wishes. Goals (again to my thinking) are like having a game plan to get were you want to be. I try to break the main goal into “bite-size”, doable tasks. As you know, I ♥ checking things off my to-do list ?

So, let me rephrase … where are you on your road to achieving the goals you made for yourself on New Year’s Eve? Call us, we can discuss the ways we can “help” you achieve your goals 🙂
