Keep Your New Year's Resolutions

Keep Your New Year's Resolutions

You make them every year, but can you remember your resolutions from last year? Did you keep any of them?

BE REALISTIC - Make resolutions that you can actually achieve. You know yourself. Don't generalize, such as I will spend more time with my kids, be specific, such as I will spend 1 hour each evening with my kids, doing what they want to do. Don't make more than 3 resolutions. This year, I only have 2.

SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS - Divide each resolution into small steps. Write each step on the top of your calendar for each month. Step one for January, Step two for February, etc. You will have a better chance of reaching your goals if you have a plan written down.

YOU CAN DO IT - If you give up or forget for awhile, don't let that stop you from continuing. Set a reward for yourself at the completion of each resolution, go big, such as a Trip to Disneyland or a day at a spa!

You can keep your New Year's Resolutions if you do not forget about them.
