New Year's Resolutions - Five tips to succeed

Its time again for New Years Resolutions. Many people make them and just as many break them. So, how do you keep to your New Years resolution?

Here are five tips to stay on top of it this year:

1. Make a realistic goal.
It is no use making a goal that you know is unattainable or that you have never even been close to achieving. To say, “I will climb Mount Everest”, if you have never taken a climbing lesson in your life is a little far fetched. Perhaps, a goal such as “I will take a climbing lesson” is a better goal.

2. Set a date to reach your goal.
If you set a date, you have a period in which you are working towards your goal. Having an open-ended goal allows you to have wiggle room to delay getting started.

3. Get other to help you.
If you goal can incorporate others into it, then they can help you reach their goal. How many people do you know who may have the same goal? Enlist them in tackling your goal; together you will both achieve your goals.

4. Write out your goal.
Take a blank sheet of white paper, write your goal down in thick black ink, and keep it in a place where you can see it everyday. This can serve as a reminder of what your goal is and the time you have to complete it.

5. Do not plan to fail.
Make a plan to achieve you goal. Think about it for a week, write it down, enlist others to help you, keep track of your progress and remind yourself of the promise you made to yourself. Do not fail.

New Year’s resolutions are a great way to start the year of on the right foot. If you are one of the few who will succeed in your resolution you will have achieved something most only dream.

Best of luck
