The prospect of the New Year is always exciting. It’s a new beginning and the time to get started on the things we’ve always wanted to do. However, for most of us, it has become a discouraging practice because once the year ends, we see more of the things we didn’t do rather than the things we’ve accomplished.
But don’t allow 2015 to be just like the years before. Instead, be determined to go beyond your limits and truly thirst for more. Here are a few ways to start your 2015 right.
Write down your goals. Putting things in writing gives you a definitive, concrete look on the things you want. You can even create a vision board to view on a daily basis to inspire and remind you of what you want to do.
Replace bad habits with good ones. If one of your goals is to quit a specific habit (i.e., eating junk food), don’t focus on stopping; refocus your goal on developing a new habit instead. Choose to add value to your life instead of taking something away, which will change the way you view and eventually achieve your goals.
Find a success buddy. It’s true that the more accountable you are to someone, the more encouraged you are to accomplish your goals. Celebrating successes as a team is also more encouraging compared with celebrating it alone.
Challenge yourself. The only way to change your life is to go beyond what is expected of you. It’s important to change your routine and try new things. If you want 2015 to be greater than the previous years, thirst for more and expect bigger and better things for yourself as well.
