How to Set Up New Year’s Resolutions That Stick

Did you know that as many as 25% of all people who make New Year resolutions fail within the first week?

Scary stuff, huh?

And that’s why I waited until now to put this blog out.

See, if had I released this at the end of December, or the very start of January, it wouldn’t have been much use – you’d have been all amped up and ready to go.

That fire in your belly would be there to get on and smash your 2015 goals.

But now, though – over 50% of you will probably have slipped up, and perhaps already even given up for another year.

But I don’t think that’s the case, and even if you have made a bit of a resolution faux pas, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t get back on the grind and CRUSH it for the rest of the year.

After all, if you’re reading this and following me, that sets you apart from all the others who’ve already broken their resolutions.

So read on to find out how to set New Year resolutions that stick using…

  • 7 Day Goals
  • 30 Day Goals
  • Tricks to make these goals stick

Step 1: 7-Day Goal

A year’s a long time, right?

That doesn’t mean we need to look that far in advance, though.

Sure, you may want to drop 30, 40, or perhaps even 50 pounds.

Perhaps you desperately want that six-pack but know it’s still a ways off.

It’s great to have lofty ambitions, but you need to start small.

Give yourself a goal to hit over the next 7 days, and keep it simple. It could be something like –

  • Get 5 workouts in this week
  • Spend 3 hours per day with your kids
  • Get your diet 90% right – whether that’s eating lean protein at every meal, getting 4 servings of veggies a day, or taking all your supplements.

Got one? Good, let’s move on.

Step 2: 30-Day Goal

This is a little different.

Switching things on their head, let’s look at a BAD 30-day goal –

“I want to lose weight.”

This is just far too vague.

It doesn’t mean anything – you can lose weight from one day to the next, or drop half a pound by sweating in a sauna, yet neither of these is what you want.

Try this instead –

It’s February 20th, 30 days from today. I have lost 2 inches off my waist, 7 pounds, and my clothes fit better. I am happier, healthier, and feel fitter than I did just 4 short weeks ago.

 See the difference?

These goals can be measured.

They put you at the finish line.

Step 3: Grab a Pen … 

And write these down.

Get two sticky notes, and write both goals on each.

Put one of these in your car (on your steering wheel or your dashboard) and the other on your bathroom mirror.

That way, you’ll see them multiple times every single day.

Step 4: Call Me!

Accountability is a huge part of goal setting and one that’s all too often overlooked.

That’s why I want you to reach out to me.

My job is to help you as much as possible, and I want to empower you to achieve great things and crush your goals this year.

None of us can get where we want on our own – we need that support and motivation.

So get in touch – either by commenting here or on the video, on Facebook, on Instagram or via email, and let me know how you’re doing.

If you tell me what I can do for you – whether that’s creating products, hosting webinars, or putting out blog posts on different topics – I’m happy to do it.

The Proof is in the Pudding

Since implementing these tactics – the 7-day and 30-day goals, writing them down on sticky notes, and the accountability factor, I’ve hit every goal I’ve set for myself.

Before this, I was haphazard and sporadic, and 9 times out of 10, I failed.

So follow my lead, break down your goals, and let’s get fit together in 2015.
