How to make sure you achieve your New Year resolution this year

Let’s help you check off a New Year resolution off your list as soon as possible

The beginning of a new year is a great time to reflect on the past 12 months and assess your values and priorities for the next 12. This is an opportunity to learn from your mistakes and strive to be a better, healthier you. However, the biggest challenge with choosing a New Year resolution is actually working toward achieving it.

Here's some advice to help you achieve your New Year resolution goal or goals for the new year:

Motivate yourself with meaningful goals

You'd be shocked at how often people make a New Year resolution they’re not genuinely passionate about. A resolution has little chance of success and may even be doomed from the get-go if it’s not close to your heart.

Ensure that the goal you're setting is meaningful to you and that reaching it will help you grow. If your resolutions line up with your values, objectives, hopes, and desires, you have a good chance of achieving them. Making a personal growth plan is an especially wonderful approach to motivating yourself while pursuing career-focused goals.

Set manageable goals and expectations

Setting too many goals can be distracting and overwhelming. You know yourself better than anyone else—you know your limited attention span and commitment, so trying to achieve too many things at once is only setting yourself up for failure.

If you want to be successful with your resolutions this year, keep the list small. Realizing the importance of setting goals and sticking to a schedule is crucial here. Begin by listing general self-improvement goals on different post-its and then arranging them in order of importance. Now that you know what's most important to you, you can start thinking about your strengths, weaknesses, limitations, and potential to achieve those goals.
