What's the difference between people who stick to their New Year's resolutions and those who give up?
[4 min READ - Attention could change your life]
It's January 19 and statistics show that more than 65% of people have given up on their New Years Resolutions and by second week of February statistics show it will be more than 96%
So the question is what's the difference between those who stick to their New Year's resolutions and those who don't?
Simply put it is 2 things
1) A vision that is clear and inspires
2) A structured detailed plan
What most people call 'resolutions' are really just wish lists or prayers
The majority of people aren't actually resolving anything within themselves just wishing or hoping that it will happen
If you want to be a part of the 4% that actually follow through and make their dreams a reality versus the many that just talk, you need to have clarity on what specific results you will you accomplish?
What's your WHY? Reasons come first, Solutions come second
How will you do it? What tools, strategies, or resources do you need to make it happen, who's guidance or help will speed up your results?
Those who stick to their resolutions have an understanding of why they are doing what they are doing
They have a purpose and meaning that's a larger motivating driver towards the goal
When you set your goals (at any time of the year) be sure they truly excite and inspire you
No-one is excited about losing 5-10 kg
It's got nothing to do with weight it's about feeling more confident, having more energy, being healthier for your family and friends, being a leader and a role model, having more sex and fun 😉
Take for example billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, who is CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX. He gets a lot done in part because he has a strong "why."
"The thing that drives me is that I want to be able to think about the future and feel good about that," says Musk, speaking to a group of governors gathered in July. "We are doing what we can to have the future be as good as possible, to be inspired by what is likely to happen and to look forward to the next day."
Once you've got an understanding of why your resolution is important, the next step is to create a strategy and to identify the tools that will help you manifest what you want
Without a plan, your resolution will remain a dream and a prayer
To begin to make your goal a reality, put pen to paper
Commit yourself even further and write it down for yourself to review every day this year to stay focused no on track
Though writing down a goal may sound like surprisingly simple advice and like I'm about to tell you about the secret
Look at Billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson. He says its his top tool for success
"Ever since I was a child I have made lists of all kinds, including short-term tasks, long-term goals and resolutions. It's how I make sense of the world, bring order to the ideas in my head, and start turning them into action," writes Branson, in a 2017 New Year's Day post on his blog
Physically putting pen to paper unleashes a psychological process that imprints on the unconscious mind - in psychology called a psycho neuromuscular activity
This will activate a part of your brain called the Reticular Activating System which will automatically guide you and keep you focused on task
Once you have established a goal, understand your motivation and set a plan of action, then keep trying and never ever give up
No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn't trying
