Are you ready for a mind blowing piece of information? We have less than one week until it’s February. How is that possible?!
Are you ready for something even more shocking? A post over at Business Insider recently shared that “approximately 80% of [New Year’s] resolutions fail by the second week of February.” 80%?! Yikes…that’s not good odds. Especially since it’s almost February…
Now admittedly, this statistic isn’t surprising to me when I think of fitness resolutions. In fact, that’s what inspired my fitness goals post a few weeks ago, which is filled with strategies about how to stick with our fitness routines.
When I realized that it’s not just fitness resolutions that have these bad odds, however, I was inspired to return to the subject of goals and goal setting once more.
Since we’re rapidly approaching that second week of February, I thought I’d do an accountability check, and make sure we’re staying on track with our own New Year’s Resolutions.
So…how are things going?
Now be honest, have you found yourself wondering, “How can I get back on track with New Year’s Resolution?” “What are some strategies to stay motivated?” Or “How can I make my goals a reality?” Then you’re in luck. Because that’s exactly what we’re exploring today.
New Year’s Resolution Check in: Slay Your Goals Planner
Often times when I begin working toward a new goal, I start full-steam ahead. I’m thrilled at all of the possibilities that lie ahead of me, and I can’t wait to get started.
After the first few weeks, however, the novelty wears off a bit. And by week three or four, it’s a struggle to maintain consistency.
Has this ever happened to you? It’s frustrating, isn’t it?
Whenever I need to get back on track with a goal, project, routine, etc. I first spend some time reflecting on the situation. I ask myself several different questions about my loss of motivation, which helps me dig deep in to the heart of the problem.
So if you’ve lost sight of your New Year’s Resolution, and you’re struggling to rediscover your groove, try asking yourself the following questions:
- Why was this New Year’s Resolution important to me?
- How is it important to me today?
- Has the importance changed?
- Why have I lost my motivation?
- Are there any obstacles holding me back?
By clearly identifying your goal and highlighting potential obstacles, you’ve taken the first key steps toward getting your resolution back on track. And now the real fun begins.
Now it’s time to rediscover your motivation.
How can you feel the excitement and drive that pushed you at the beginning of this journey? And even more importantly, how can you maintain those feelings for the long haul?
