It’s a circle now, and it’s getting to a point where you’re just about to give up hope. Yep, your New Year’s resolutions. You’ve been telling yourself over and over again how you’re going to make something of yourself this year, only to make it half-way through, and fall back to square one again.

It can be tough to keep to a resolution that you had planned to keep. Especially in the jungle of the world that we live in.

That being said, here’s how you can change that proverbial ‘slip and fall’ you normally experience whenever you try to change your life. FOR GOOD…

New Year Resolutions are great, though one needs to be dedicated to them to make them a reality

Be careful of the words that you use in your vocabulary

The power of the mouth is extremely important. As a matter of fact, most of your resolutions could be failing simply because you’ve been expressing them in a vague manner.

Let’s analyze this deeper.

As you know, the power of thought is extremely important. As the Law Of Attraction says, if you live your life in the Present, and behave as if you are already achieving all that you desired, then this is the reality that will manifest before you.

So if you say, ‘I will be more organized’ or ‘I will try to be me organized’ you are coming from a place of lack in both instances.

A great alternative to altering your state of mind is to say ‘I am organized.’ This reinforces that the resolution of organization is a part of your life, and you’ve been living with this abundance as long as you can remember. This level of thinking will positively impact the subconscious, causing you to manifest that reality before you.

Most individuals give up on their resolutions because they find them difficult to adhere to a strict regimen for 21 days

Build on the Right Resolutions

To make your goals clearer, and to boost your motivation, you should come up with a list of pros and cons regarding your current life state. According to the professor of clinical health at the University of Rhode Island, Mr. James Prochaska, if one of your goals is to exercise more, you should draw up a list of as many reasons as to why you would either support as well as refute the reasons to exercise.

For example, some of the positives will be that you’ll sleep much better and you’ll lose all the weight, while the negatives would be that you would feel muscle pains after exercise.

Whenever you set up a goal and you find that the cons outweigh the pros, then you should think twice about including it in your list of goals. You might be setting yourself up for failure even before you know it!

Set a Timetable of Your Incentives

One of the things that you’ve got to realize is that your urge to revert back to your old ways might be pretty strong, and can cause you to lose focus on what you do. If that’s the case, then you should strive to avoid any catalysts that will bring you back to ground zero with your objectives.

One of the best ways of doing this is by sticking to a timetable for your incentives. As a matter of fact, it takes the subconscious roughly 21 days of repetitive action to make a certain action a full-time habit.

So if you’re planning is to become one of the cleanest individuals around, you’ve got to stick to a schedule for the first 21 days, and after that, you’ll find that it will be easier to follow that goal every day.

It is wise to consider the pros and cons of your resolution before deciding to make it a reality

Get Support from Your Friends and Peers

One thing you’ve got to realize is that you can’t do everything alone. You might need the help of others, especially when it comes to getting motivation for your goals and objectives.

Keeping this in mind, you should look for one of your friends that shares a similar objective. For example, if it’s losing weight, you can partner up with a friend who has this as their New Year’s Resolution as well. This way the two of you can motivate each other toward a common goal.

Conclusively, whatever your New Year’s resolution might be, don’t quit on it. Eventually, with dedication, it will pay off.
