January is here, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to make a New Year’s resolution. However, while many Americans do make resolutions, only about 8% actually keep them. If you want to be part of that 8%, here are some tips on making resolutions you can keep.
The first thing to consider is whether your resolution is actually something you can do. For example, resolving to spend more time with family is great, but your life isn’t magically going to have more time in it. Instead, figure out what your true priorities are and delegate lesser responsibilities to others, even if that means hiring someone else to do some yardwork or housecleaning.
If you’ve been yearning for love in your life, avoid resolving to find it. This will only put more pressure on any blossoming relationships and could force feelings that aren’t really there. Instead, try focusing on yourself this year and you might be surprised how your inner confidence and glow attracts the right kind of people into your life.
Another step in actually succeeding with your goals is by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable goals. For example, if you want to save $5,000 this year, set a goal of $100 a week. If you can do that, you will more than reach your goal by the end of the year.
