Happy New Year and Welcome 2022! We are officially in a NEW year and a NEW Month! We are facing a new chapter and a clean slate in our lives.
Take this time to look back and reflect on 2021.
Let’s not look back and think of all the things we could of should of have done differently or didn’t do. Remove any negative thoughts of 2021.
BUT let’s reflect on the GREAT & FAVORITE things that 2021 had brought us and everything we are grateful for in 2021. Let’s celebrate those WINS, no matter how small they may be. AND carry those grateful and positive vibes into 2022.
Too many times we tend to focus on our new year resolutions or goals for the New Year AND overlook focusing on everything we’ve accomplished and appreciate everything we have. It puts everything into perspective and shows you where you are and where you need to go going forward.
Every year millions of people make New Year’s resolutions to improve their lives.
Chances are you’ve set quite a few goals in the past that didn’t quite pan out or didn’t come close to reaching whatever goals you may have set in the years past.
BUT, if you didn’t reach those goals or gave up, it is not just you…..did you know that there has been research that around 80% of people GIVE UP on their goals.
One main reason is setting unrealistic goals on yourself that would be hard for anyone to obtain…so it’s not you.
It is common for people to decide on things that they truly want to accomplish in life, then to set a goal to work towards, but to ultimately come up short leaving them frustrated and discouraged. In fact, 25% of people actually abandon their New Year’s Goals after just 2 WEEKs! For those of them that manage to push past those weeks, 60% abandon them within 3-6 months.
What if this year, we expanded the idea of “goals” into something even BIGGER – a vision of SUCCESS.
Think about what would make 2022 a successful year for you. Write it down and say it to yourself.
Now Visualize IT! What would it look like if you achieved it? How would it feel?
I’m not just talking about health & fitness goals, although those are extremely important to have.
I’m talking about a 360 Wellness approach of ALL ASPECTS of your life…..career, family, social network, mental, spiritual connection…..in conjunction with your health and fitness goals.
What is the one thing that you look back on and think, “Wow, I did that!”?
When you are striving for your goal, keep in mind and remind yourself that you’re on the right track with your “vision of success” when you:
1) Feel yourself start to smile and/or
2) You feel some butterflies in your stomach
Now, here’s where the rubber meets the road….
Start living your life “AS IF” you’ve already reached that success.
What would your day look like today if you ALREADY achieved that success? Picture it vividly.
What daily habits you would have picked up along the way?
It’s time to start DOING THEM now – to adopt the habits of that future version of yourself.
Sustaining Habits is a lot about mindset. It takes 3 weeks of performing a routine for it to become a normal habit. So be patient with yourself and take things one day at a time. YOU’VE GOT THIS!
“Success is the sum of small efforts – repeated day in and day out.” -Robert Collier
Remember, the past has passed, so learn from each year so you are armed and ready for 2022. Don’t just wish for a great year this year; VISUALIZE & CREATE IT! CHEERS to the New Year. Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
