New Years Resolutions: The Plan & The Aftermath

Starting over is not usually an easy thing to do. Whether you are starting over because you have made a conscious effort to, or because you are forced to start over – it is generally challenging. The main reason why it is a challenge is because it requires you to change what you have been doing – and change in general is difficult for most people.

You hear the same resolutions every year from your friends: they want to lose weight, quit smoking, get in shape, quit drinking, get out of debt, get organized, help people, spend more quality time with family, learn something new,  and enjoy life more. Why are so many people unsuccessful with their new year resolutions? Why must they start over every single year?

In order to start over, you must be committed to what you are doing. Get organized and make a plan, this will assist in you being successful. Treat this as a project, everything is essentially a project. Set goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. Keep your goals and attitude positive, I firmly believe in the laws of attraction. Focus on your end goal, picture it, do it.

Personally, I use starting over as a positive challenge. It’s an opportunity to start new, fresh if you will. By committing to start over, you are already taking the first step.

You are the person in control of the project, it’s your plan and it’s your actions. If your plan isn’t working for you, it is time to revisit it.  The key is getting it right!

“Maybe it’s not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it’s about starting over to create something better.” – Mark Samson
