I LOVE the idea of goals and resolutions, I always have. NEW YEAR resolutions to live by in my opinion are nothing but a great idea. The beginning of progress first takes a thought. That thought will then be transformed in to ACTION. And ACTION then brings PROGRESS! I posted this quote on my instagram…
WHATEVER WE WATER WILL GROW!
This is so simple, but think about it….. what we give our love and attention to, will undoubtedly GROW! Growing and progressing and flourishing are all excellent ways to take care of ourselves mentally! And good mental health will allow us to be our best and then be able to serve others better.
New beginnings are POWERFUL opportunities to grow and learn. We can look at the New Year as just another day and just another year, or recognize it as being a fresh start! The New Year offers us a chance to reflect and really take a look at our lives and circumstances and perhaps reevaluate and make some changes.
We can’t ever expect progression if there is no action. If we continue to do things the same way, there will never be any progress. ACTION is very key to success when it comes to goal setting. It’s so easy to get stuck in a comfort zone because it’s comfortable! Makes sense, right? But comfort zones aren’t necessarily a good thing. We are meant to be pushed a bit in order to grow.
TAKE TIME TO LOOK BACK AND REFLECT
If you were to look back on 2022, what are the good things about it? Ask yourself how you can have more of that. In turn, what are the not so good things about the past year? How can you eliminate those? It’s a simple exercise and BELIEVE ME, just the self-reflecting aspect can be a very positive thing!
It’s just as powerful to see the changes you want….. CLEARLY! The focus we give to our goals is huge! Remove yourselves from negative mindsets. They can be so debilitating! Focus on the positive. See yourself as the person you want to be. Visualize the path that will get you there!
A great example of this is to take something that you LOVE and are PASSIONATE about. You would work hard towards it, right? You would find a way to learn and grow more in that area. Your FOCUS would be there and most definitely you’d excel and become better and better at it.
Don’t ever under-estimate the POWER OF NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS! It may seem tedious to some to sit and think about, but it will seriously help you become your best self! There’s nothing better than accomplishing something hard! NOTHING!! Work and progress is a great boost to your self-esteem! It’s the best thing my parents ever taught me!! Yes, NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS TO LIVE BY should be a part of your thinking RIGHT NOW!
HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!
