First things first…HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! My boyfriend and I are ringing in 2016 in Park City, Utah, where it is absolutely breathtakingly (pun intended) beautiful! It’s just about time for us to hit the slopes and shred the fresh powder 😉 but before we go, I’ll leave you with a couple thoughts…
I LOVE the idea of self-improvement or self-betterment, however, what I’m not the biggest fan of is a New Year’s Resolution for a couple reasons. First, why wait until the new year to start setting goals and reaching them for yourself?! The time to start bettering yourself is right NOW. I am constantly setting goals for myself, daily, weekly, and annually. In addition, it’s easy to create a resolution or goal for yourself, but sticking with it the entire year is pretty difficult. You either “forget”, “don’t make time for it”, or your goal can simply fall by the wayside because it is too “general”; and there has been no implementation of practical steps to reach your goal. Essentially, your results will only be as good as your plan!
For this reason, in order to be successful, it’s important to set realistic, attainable, yet still challenging goals for yourself through implementation of a plan. Buy a journal, write down your plan, and keep track of how you are going to reach your goals. Baby steps and the big pictre are key to visualizing your goals and reaching them!
I’m still working on creating my plan and my goals, which takes some time to produce, but I will keep you updated as soon as it has been done. I will say however, that I am constantly working on improving myself mentally, physically, and emotionally, in any way possible that I see potential. What are some of your goals and resolutions for 2016? I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
