How to keep those New Year resolutions
- Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t. “Giving up” something will never work because of the way our minds work – every time you think about stopping something, your mind will crave it more. Replace both the habit, the pleasures you gained from it, and your reasons for doing it, with positive results.2.Decide whether you are in control of your mind, or if your mind is in control of you. For example, if you decide to eat more fruit associate massive pleasure to the fruit, and enjoy each and every bite – as opposed to feeling you have to eat it because it is the right thing to do.
- Reward “small” successes – if your resolution is to go to the gym more to get fit, going on that first occasion, taking that first action, is a success in itself. Many people, whose own resolutions may be falling apart, will tell you that one visit to the gym will not make a difference – it does, so reward yourself.
- Be absolutely specific about what you want to achieve – if you have decided to earn a certain amount of money in 2006, then how much?
- Make a true decision – that this is what you are going to achieve, and close off all other possibilities.
- And finally, to fast-track – the fastest way to make any change in your life is to act as-if that change has already been made – act as-if the change you wish, is happening to you now. So often in our lives we live do-get-be – if I do something different, I will get different results and then I will be something different. Acting as-if means be-do-get – by being it now, I will do different things and achieve different results.
May 2006 be the best year of your life – right now.
