It’s the beginning of a new year. Many of us have made New Year’s resolutions and set goals.
Each year some of us tend to go through the motions of setting goals, making resolutions, and making promises. But how many of us actually follow through with them? How many of us really have the drive and motivation to carry them out? Surprisingly there are a lot of people who lose motivation with in the first week of the new year.
The beginning of the year is not necessarily the best time to making resolutions because this is the time of year that most see it as “tradition”. There are two main ways to ensure yourself of carrying out your plans and goals. 1. Change your mental attitude. 2. Write them down.
Changing your mental attitude
The first step in accomplishing what you set out to do is getting your mind right and believe in yourself. No person had ever achieved their dreams or accomplished their goals by not believing in themselves. You must believe with all of your mind and heart that you can do what it is that you want to do. Remove all debris from your mind. To do this you can go for a quiet walk and practice thinking about what it is you want. Ask God to help you have a clearer thinking. Clear your mind of all doubts and disbelief and you can obtain anything you want to do in life. Your only limitations are the ones in your mind.
Many people give up prematurely because they fail to believe in themselves. You must realize that we are all born with the ability to believe and the ability to make choices.
Napoleon Hill talks about taking possession of your own mind. He states ” Whatever the mind can believe the mind can achieve”.
Get a clear picture in your mind of what you really want and then as I talk about in my next section….Write it down.
If you believe it I can happen for you.
Write it down
A goal is not a goal unless it is written. Once you have decided what you really want , write it down in a notebook or better yet make a vision board and put them in a place where you can see it consistently.
Read over your desires at least 3 to 5 times daily. Look at your vision board as often as possible at least 3 to 5 times daily as well.
Develop this habit by doing this everyday until it becomes a part of you, until it becomes second nature. You will eventually see a change in the way you see yourself. Do it until it seems automatic.
The main key is Don’t give up!
