It is hard to believe that we enter into a New Year in just a few days from now! I am sure many of you, like myself, have your New Year’s Resolutions all ready for day one of 2017. You may have a special diet to try, a new exercise routine, as well as other regimens planned to ‘improve your body of its imperfections.’ But, as we all know, most New Year’s Resolutions are unrealistic, and more than likely put demands on us that aren’t healthy for own well-being. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for setting goals and having aspirations for self-improvement, but making them reasonable is necessary for success in achieving what you want! There are so many important factors to consider when deciding to make changes in your life. One of the most important is your mental state, meaning, are you truly ready for the self discipline it takes to make changes?
So, let us at a bra palette share some small pearls which may help you more practically achieve your New Year’s Resolutions to avoid the pitfalls of ‘self-sabotage.’ First of all, keep your goals simple and reasonable to avoid self-defeat early on. Thinking in terms of the day’s resolutions and not the year’s also goes hand in hand here. As the Chinese Proverb says, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Procrastination, making exceptions, or the lack of self-discipline are some of the contributing factors to why we give up on our resolutions. Loving and believing in yourself, or ‘self trust,’ will be key in helping achieve your goals. As Jillian Michaels quotes, “It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs.” Stay focused on positive outcomes and celebrate your successes, no matter how small, for they are significant! Finally, make sure you have that special someone to help you along with your progress and be your cheerleader! And remember, we love you!💜
