How to Crush Your New Year’s Resolutions

It’s officially 2020 and with the start of a new year comes the addition of New Year’s Resolutions! Many of us make them, some of us avoid them, but there is no doubt that something within us craves a reset at the beginning of each new year. Whether you have been successful in the past with your yearly goal setting or maybe you are looking for new ways to motivate yourself to the finish line, here are some ways to crush those resolutions this year and create a lifestyle of success in 2020: 

  1. Evaluate WHY you want to achieve that goal. Goals are great – but really the motivating factor behind them is what will keep you going. If you are setting a goal, make sure that the reason you are doing it is something that will sustain you the whole year long. Locate your WHY. Figure out exactly what you are looking to gain from creating that resolution. 
  2. Focus on small efforts every single day. It’s easy to set lofty goals, but you won’t crush them unless you make small efforts toward achieving them each day. Every day counts and making those decisions to pursue your goal each day will leave you with a satisfied year of achievement! 
  3. Work with others to hold yourself accountable. Whether you have resolutions to hit the gym more, study and learn more, or business accomplishments you want to see to fruition, sharing those with your friends and partners can help them keep you on track as well. Invest in a friendship or mentorship where you can both share your resolutions and work towards them together, encouraging each other and lifting one another up in the process. 
  4. Write them down. There is power in making something tangible! Writing down your resolutions and placing them in a spot where you can see them is a motivator in and of itself. Although they may be in your head, make it a point to put it on paper as well! 

Do you have New Year’s Resolutions this year? I would love to hear what goals you are working towards!
