Solah from Positively Purposeful has contributed some great suggestions to Only Positive News in the past, so when she dropped us a comment, I was excited to pass on an excerpt from her latest article about New Year’s resolutions. We all know how fallible resolutions can be. Maybe we set ourselves up a bit too much. Here are a few pointers to take it down a notch:
One way that we can cultivate belief in ourselves is by incrementally increasing how we challenge our self. We can do this by setting one small goal at a time, taking the neccessary steps to set ourselves up for success and then of course, by sticking with it. Once we reach our goal, it’s equally important that we take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate our achievements before putting our focus on something just a tiny bit bigger. This process builds our belief in self.
It’s important to also know that for a resolution to be successful, it must be lined up with what our subconscious really wants for us. When we try to go against the subconscious, it will always find a way to meet it’s own agenda.
