  • Make Your New Year’s Resolutions Stick • • • • • Come February, the reality of the year sets in. This is when our New Year’s resolutions can lose their sparkle. It’s a common trap a lot of people fall into. Safeguard yourself against this, revise & adjust your goals. Adopt a sustainable approach for success. lifedesigned.com.au View slide
  • Safeguard Your New Year’s Resolutions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Define the right type of goal. Identify success habits. Develop daily rituals. Surround yourself with the right people. Adjust your inputs. Raise your standards. lifedesigned.com.au View slide
  • 1. Define the right type of goal • Review your goals - are they SMART? • SMART in an acronym for: • • • • • Specific and Simple Measurable Aspirational Realistic and Relevant Time Stated • Example: • “By 1 July I will be in a job that brings me happiness, rewards me for my contribution and give me a sense of purpose.” • Refine your goals to make them SMARTer. lifedesigned.com.au
  • 2. Identify success habits • Revisit your SMART goals. • Who do you know that has achieved them? • Friends, family colleagues? • Public figures, famous people? • What habits have they developed to get them where they are? • Find out - research, discuss & observe. • Take action - match & mirror these habits on a daily basis. lifedesigned.com.au
  • 3. Develop daily rituals • Momentum is integral for success. • Ritualising success habits helps achieve this. • General examples: • Review your goals as you brush your teeth. • Express gratitude for your blessings in the shower. • Walk bare foot on the grass for 10 minutes each day. • Goal specific examples: – if your goal was to develop your singing voice: • Practice scales whilst getting dressed. • Pour yourself a two litre jug of water to drink through the day. • Practice your posture while in the car or public transport. • Pick a handful of relevant success habits. • Lock them into your daily routine. lifedesigned.com.au
  • 4. Surround yourself with the right people • “Who you surround yourself with, you become”. • Is your network helping you become the person that you want to be? • If not, identify new social networks to plug yourself into. • Gradually spend more quality time with like-minded people. • Example: – If your goal is around wellbeing: • Join a meditation group or a yoga studio to meet new people that you can support you on your journey. lifedesigned.com.au
  • 5. Adjust your inputs • • • • What are you feeding your mind and body? Is it aligned with your vision of success? Make conscious decisions each day. Use your time wisely absorbing inputs that move you towards your goal. • Example: – If you want to improve your cooking skills: • • • • watch cooking shows. read online foodie forums. talk to friends about their favourite dishes. exchange recipe ideas etc. lifedesigned.com.au
  • 6. Raise your standards 1. 2. 3. You are where you are because of your standards. To make improvements you have to lift them. Examples: • If you want to get out of debt - lift your game around expenditure and savings. • If you want to lose weight - do what it takes to make exercise and healthful eating part of your lifestyle. • If you want a promotion - do more than is expected of you in your current role. 4. Make an effort and break a sweat to get where you want to go. lifedesigned.com.au
