Did you make a New Year's Resolution for 2015? What was it? I would love to hear from you in the comments, about your goals and how you are doing with those goals. According to statisticbrain.com the number one New Year's Resolution is to lose weight, and staying fit and healthy is the number five most common resolution. The site also states that 64% of people that make resolutions are still maintaining them after one month. (way better than I thought!) Unfortunately only 46% of those who set New Years Resolutions last past six months.
Did You Make Any Resolutions?
So, my question is: did you set a New Years Resolution, and are you still working towards your goal? statisticbrain.com also states: "People who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions." Have you shared your goals with friends and family? Someone to help keep you accountable? Someone that will check in on your progress? Did you make a specific goal, right down to the number of lbs. you want to lose? Or the size pants you want to wear? Or are you measuring the grams of fats, sugars, carbs and proteins you consume in each meal? How "explicit" have you been in your resolution, and how successful do you think you will be? I invite you to share your challenges and strives.
I personally don't make New Years Resolutions, but I do make resolutions regularly. I am constantly setting goals, for my personal development, fitness, spiritual endeavors, and family, through out the year. I take some resolutions more seriously than others and some stick better than others. Some of my most recent personal resolutions: spend quality time with my family, more consistently. I aim to gather my family at least once a month for a nice dinner, and some demonstrations of appreciation. I have set a goal to change my morning habits, and to make time for meditation and self reflection during the morning while the children still sleep (instead of letting my youngest be my alarm). My fitness goal is to workout harder, and really focus on pushing myself physically. I also want to get more control over my food intake, limiting my refined sugars to once a week, eat salad for at least one meal a day, drink a kale shake for at least one meal a day, and having some freedom on the third meal. As far as my business goals, grow! baby! grow! I need to be more specific, and honestly, out of all my goals this one is the hardest. All my goals are huge struggles for me to manage. I'm not quitting, but I'm not at 100% achievement, I know where I lack focus and discipline, and all I can say is I am building better habits and studying those who demonstrate success, and share strategy. I am open to suggestions, please don't hesitate to share!
