How To Make New Year’s Resolutions Stick

How To Make New Year’s Resolutions Stick

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer It’s that time of year again. We started with our New Year’s resolutions to balance our lives out just a short while ago. Some of us wanted to lose weight, while others wanted to make more money. Now we are getting to a critical point, where we may feel like giving up. As a yoga instructor, I felt the sting of the holidays when my classes dropped to low numbers due to parties and traveling, but now I’m flooded with packed classes every night and bombarded with the question, “How can you help me keep my New Year’s Resolutions?” The frequency of this query inspired me to create a plan to help my clients with their own unique goals.

Long Term Goals: How To Create And Achieve Your Long Term Goal

Long Term Goals: How To Create And Achieve Your Long Term Goal

Long term goals may be more important to our sense of happiness and well-being than many people come to believe. They direct our actions. They provide us with a sense of purpose. They even shape our attitude towards objects, people and circumstances that surround us. In the recent psychological study conducted by Alberta School of Business, researchers made a mind-blowing discovery – once we set a long term goal, our subconscious mind will never “erase” it. No matter where we live, what we do and how old we are, our subconscious will continue actively searching for ways to achieve our long term goals. Once set in motion this mechanism can not be stopped. Not by multiple failures. Not by negative social conditioning. Not even by your conscious decision to stop trying. Good news is that you have been programmed for success. Not-so-good news – you will still have to do the work to achieve it, but it is hardly the reason to get discouraged.
