New Year Resolutions stay exactly that – mere resolutions. We all start the New Year with excitement and vigour but it soon dies down somewhere in March (even in February!). So how do we achieve our goals if we give up on them so early? Well, here are some simple tips to help you successfully accomplish your New Year resolutions in 2018.
1. Make a vision board
It doesn’t matter what your resolution is; losing weight, gaining weight, getting a job etc. Making a vision board helps you in more ways than one. You can keep your eyes on the goal (literally) when you wake up everyday and see your vision board. And when you do manage to accomplish it, there’s no better feeling!
2. Motivational Quotes
Quotes have inspired and motivated us since time immemorial, so why not use it for our New Year resolutions too? Make a folder of images on your phone with super motivational and positive quotes and set the best picture as your wallpaper. Remember to take a look at it every time you feel like you can’t do it! You can also download an app about inspirational quotes and turn on the daily notifications. It will surely fill your mind with positive thoughts.
Hard work plus consistency equals success. How do you ensure that you don’t give up after a few attempts? Reminders! Set reminders on your phone to do a certain task. Keep multiple reminders if you think you’ll ignore it the first time. In the end, you might just get annoyed of the reminders and do the task you need to do!
4. Positive Thinking
No matter how many motivational pictures or vision boards you make, in the end, it’s all about positive thinking. If you think negative thoughts and put yourself down all the time, there’s a high chance of failure. It’s easier said than done, but it’s important to constantly think positive. Don’t forget to work hard along with it too, because only positive thinking will get you nowhere. It’s a balance of both. A clear, positive mind will pave your way towards your goal.
A combination of all of the above points can help you accomplish your 2018 goals. What are your new year resolutions? How do you plan to achieve your goals? Do share in the comments! Here’s to a wonderful 2018. Happy New Year!! 🙂
