How are you doing on your goals for the year? Your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you even remember what they were?
So many times we’re hard on ourselves for the early misses.
We say we’re going to eat low or no carbs, three weeks in we’ve eaten some delicious pastry, fries, or even cake and abandon ship.
We say we’re going to work out every morning, wake up earlier, go to sleep earlier, read more, watch less TV, connect more … whatever.
Whatever it is, it’s important enough to declare and make a goal around, but behavior change is harder than that. It can take HUNDREDS of days to break a habit that you’ve had for many years.
So here’s an idea – celebrate NOTICING that you’ve repeated the habit you want to change. Smile and give yourself a pat on the back for noticing that you’re repeating it and change then. Don’t beat yourself up … don’t get down on yourself.
Celebrate catching yourself doing something you wanted to change and change it. Sometimes you have to celebrate getting it wrong so that you can create the momentum to get it right.
The best time to have caught yourself may have been before, but the second best time is right now.
Attach powerful positive feelings with the act of catching yourself and conquer new heights with your goals for this year.
Let’s work together to make this year the best one yet.
