Monday, January 9th, 2012

Number 5 – Competition!

If competition motivates you then use it! If you turn your resolution and goal into a competition with someone or some people you know not only will you will be much more motivated to keep going when the going gets tough but you will also strive harder even when the times are not tough! In other words you’ll push yourself harder and maximize your results!

 

Number 4 – Make it Fun!

What ever your resolution or goal is, if it involves doing something new make sure you make that resolution as attractive and enjoyable as possible! If you enjoy it and want to do it just for the sake of doing it you are going to do yourself a big favour because you will be much more likely to take that action when you don’t feel as motivated! So be creative!

 

 

Number 3 – Replace What You Are Cutting Out With Something Else!

Part of the reason it’s not easy cutting something out of your life is because you need to fill it with something else! Obviously you are not just going to do nothing instead, you are going to want to do something, so put something in its place that is both healthy and enjoyable!

 

Number 2 – S.M.A.R.T. Accountability!

No doubt you’ve heard of accountability and there is a good reason for it, it works! Choose someone you know will keep you accountable, someone who is reliable, someone that you trust and respect! Furthermore, use the S.M.A.R.T. technique accountability for your goals: all of your goals should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Resonant and Thrilling!

 

 

Number 1 – Have a Partner!

Do it with someone else, not by yourself. And no I am not talking about sex, though your resolution or goal may involve sex. The fact is when you don’t feel like doing your new years resolution chances are your partner will. There is also an element accountability and responsibility in this relationship that is lacking when you only promise yourself to make a commitment since you have promised someone other than yourself you will do this, which in turn provides more motivation!
