Welcome to 2017.
We’re only a week into the New Year and 30% of people who set New Years Resolutions have already given up (Statistic Brain, 2017).
Less than 10% will make it to end of the year.
More than 90% won’t.
Well, one big reason is the focus is on what they need to do as a person instead of who they need to become as a person.They focus on changing a surface level action instead of shifting their thinking, their beliefs and their values.
It’s a strategy that is destined to fail the moment things get a little tough.
So what can you do to ensure your New Years Resolutions and any other goals and dreams that you have actually become a reality?
Here’s a 5 step approach that will help you succeed…
#1 A Why Big Enough To Handle Any How
When the reason why you’re going to do something isn’t big enough, you’re going to be relying on ‘PUSHING’ yourself to get things done and there’s only a limited capacity to that strategy before you burn out, give in to temptation and go back to your old bad habits.
Instead, focus on developing a really strong why… one that feels like it’s ‘PULLING’ you along and can handle anything that might have otherwise gotten in the way.
#2 Certainty In Your Outcome
If you don’t develop the certainty (ideally from yourself) in your ability to achieve something, there will be the constant nagging doubt in the back of your mind… that little voice saying ‘you’re not going to succeed, who do you think you are’.
By developing the certainty in your outcome, you move forth with confidence and belief that this time it’s going to be different, that you were born to succeed.
