Self Improvement Tips You Can Use to Aid Your New Year’s Resolutions
Time surely flies- one minute we’re partying to the music of New Year’s Eve; another minute and the second week of January 2012 is almost finished! Is there a more suitable time to check how you’re doing with your New Year’s Resolutions than the end of the crucial full week?
The problem with writing your New Year’s Resolutions down is the fact that doing so does not guarantee that you can accomplish the goals you set for yourself. In fact, most people discover themselves giving up on their resolutions as early as the first week of the New Year. Believing that there is always a “next year” for your failed New Year’s Resolutions would usually cost you things that are not easy to foresee, such as a promotion (if you stuck to your resolution of going to the office earlier and going home later than your colleagues) or a boost in your love life (if you stuck to your resolution of forgetting about a painful romantic experience).
There are certain self improvement tips you can use to keep your New Year’s Resolutions and keep in track with your self-set goals. By harnessing determination and a strong sense of mind power, it would be easy to control the urge of setting your New Year’s Resolutions (and improvements) aside. These self improvement tips are:
If you don’t know how to use your mind power to keep your New Year’s Resolutions, you can jumpstart this innate mechanism by staying organized. An organized work or personal space reflects an organized mind, and vice-versa. By keeping things, thoughts, and goals in order, it would be easy for you to remember your New Year’s Resolutions and stick to them.
Force Yourself to Remember
If a hectic lifestyle is preventing you from keeping organized, harness the art of using mind power by the use of force. Force yourself to remember by sticking to-do notes on your computer monitor (or make it your desktop background if you like), fridge, wallet, or even on your mobile phone. Seeing the same notes over and over again will help you keep your resolutions in mind even if your lifestyle is more chaotic than ever.
Keeping a diary helps you monitor your effort for self improvement. Recording the day’s events will help you check if the things you did are in accordance with your Resolutions. If not, take note of this and work twice as hard the next day. Milestones can also be kept in your diary for your reference.
Giving up bad habits or trying to do better in life is never easy. However, it does not mean that sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions is impossible. By sheer mind power, even the hardest task or highest goal can be achieved.
