2 Critical Steps for Achieving Your Goals that You Could be Missing
Resolutions are not just for New Year’s. We are constantly making resolutions, goals, and setting intentions. It just so happens that the new year is a time when we put a LOT of attention on the topic. It is the season of review and resolve. And the big question I have is... do your resolutions stick? To you set goals and achieve them? In truth, the odds are against us. According to research from the University of Scranton, 92% of us fail. And I have a feeling I may know why. It is a little-addressed yet critical factor that could be hanging us all up. Read on for two steps to help you beat the odds and set a goal that succeeds!
Let go of what no longer serves you
It is no surprise that when we want something new we have to give something up. Want a new, smaller house? You gotta down-size your belongings. Want a slimmer figure? You gotta give up those treats. The idea is that we have to release the objects, thoughts, or behaviors that are getting in the way of achieving our goals. Out with the old, in with the new!
2 Steps for Success with Your Goals and Resolutions
When you think about your goals, ask yourself what you need to let go of to make them happen. Are you ready to let go? There can be emotions attached to the things you need to let go of, be they physical objects, ways of thinking, or behaviors. So, try these two steps to help you let go and go after your goal!
If you do these two things, your likelihood of success will be SO MUCH HIGHER. Trust me...it is easy to get lazy and fall into old patterns...easy and tempting. It is familiar and comfortable. So be strong. Say goodbye with love to the old, and say hello with your powerful imagination to what you are creating.
