Often it is not the New Years Resolution that you need to work at, but your ability to set a goal and work at it.
A New Years Resolution is nothing more than setting a goal and working towards it. People are often inspired to do something special, and many are motivated by the coming of a New Year to move forward and make a difference in their lives.
Here are five simple tips to help you in setting your goals and making a successful New Years Resolution.
1. Start with one resolution.
If you try to make too many, you may not accomplish any. Make your resolution very specific. "Don't say 'I want to lose weight'— instead, say 'I want to lose one kilogram a month.'"
2. Be serious about your resolution.
If you don't take your resolution seriously, it is a waste of time making one.
3. Write your resolution down and post it in a visible place.
If you see your goal every day, it will be in the forefront of your mind.
4. Enlist the support of friends and family.
Bring others in on the resolution so you have a support group to help you accomplish your goals.
5. Don't let yourself quit.
