Thanks for sharing your goals for 2018! I applaud you and join with you in the never-ending struggle to change – (and not only to change our sheets).
The overriding themes you told us about are familiar and can sound daunting: healthy living and eating, prioritizing, organizing, and creating rewarding lives and careers. I’ve been doing the research and am here to tell you that experts have shown that we can do it! In fact, although these important goals all require a change in behavior, one study indicates that at least 40% of us follow through on our resolutions. Between all the advice of psychologists, business leaders and QuickZippers I see that it just comes down to committing and taking responsibility. No one else can do it for us, no one else can force our hand (or our mouth). When we want to make a change – as one QuickZipper recommended: “sometimes, you just have to do it”.
Here are some other tips for success:
I keep an inspirational card on my wall that says “be your own guru”, and I realize that it really says it all. It can take time to get there, sometimes you have to grow into it, and sometimes it turns out it wasn't the most important thing; so, go easy on yourself but always keep moving forward!
We are with you on the journey. Here’s to your best year ever!
